Red Rocks Neighbors Unhappy With EDM Noise Level

(Radio.com) Rumbling bass and beats that play your spine like a tuning fork are a large part of EDM's attraction, with the driving rhythms packing dance floors with revelers who just can't get enough of the sound.

For Colorado residents who live near the iconic Red Rocks amphitheater in the city of Morrison (where U2 recorded their legendary 1983 concert film, U2 Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky), the pounding sounds of EDM are just too much to bear, and they've come together to ask that the venue to please just turn it down.

"You can get the craziest Metallica concert, and that's not even close to what we're talking about," Morrison Mayor Sean Forey told the Denver Post about the volume. "This is something new and different than anything in the past."

This Friday (April 25), members of the Morrison town board will meet with a Jefferson County Commissioner to discuss ways to deal with the brewing situation that has nearby homeowners unhappy, to say the least.

"It's like Guantanamo - with loud, thumping music and sleep deprivation," said one such resident in a letter written to Jefferson County, with another adding that the volume from EDM shows makes his family feel "like prisoners in our own house." more on this story
