Noise levels

We have been working with the organiser of the festivals to minimise the impact of noise levels from these events.

If you have any concerns regarding the Sundown Festival please contact the organisers by email 

We expect such music events to comply with the Noise Council code of practice on environmental noise at concerts and have advised the organisers of this. This guidance aims to strike a balance between the noise levels required on site at a music event and level of the music noise at residents’ premises. In particular, it allows the music noise to be audible at residents’ premises during the daytime in return for much quieter levels during the night-time when residents will be wishing to sleep (i.e. from 23:00). 

The organisers will be employing an experienced team of noise consultants to monitor the Sundown music festivals to ensure compliance with the code of practice. However, it is possible that due to weather effects etc. the loudest noise levels may not always occur at the predicted locations where noise levels will be monitored during the events. Thus, residents notifying the organisers of any excessive noise levels on 0800 5202517 will allow them to identify if this is the case and modify their noise monitoring and noise control arrangements if required.

Council officers will also be making visits to the area during the event to monitor the effectiveness of the organisers noise management and control arrangements.
