Vyvyan Stott, Mullumbimby

The Echo, 23 October has yet another article by a rave ‘festival’ corporation’s spokesman, threatening to leave our state.

We will have to live without prolonged hideous thumping, local and home phone services disruption, temporary 5G microwave towers, acres of litter, drug overdoses and stoned drivers etc.

And just what are these so-called festivals (proposed to be held weekly, year-round,) celebrating? Other than industrial deafness and drug-induced disorders, that is.

Perhaps the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Amyl Sniffers are ‘modern culture’? To me, this is a judgement on an ungodly nation.

Stop crying wolf. Depart for another state, the far distant one. Let us enjoy harmonious music, which has a melody.
