Amsterdam’s City Council could be introducing new limitations that limit sound for festivals within city limits.
The move, which is being pushed by local residents that asking for reduced sound levels, would see decibel limit pushed down to 85db.
According to the proposed measure promoters will “need to take more measures to reduce the inconvenience for residents. For example, the organizers of festivals must conduct permanent acoustic research during the event.”
A spokesman for the council said: “Organizers are now mainly concerned with how the sound sounds on the field. According to the new rules, they will also have to focus on the question of the effect of noise on the environment, and how to minimize the inconvenience.”
