City prepares responses to concert complaints

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Over the weekend, the Rise Above Fest concert was held at the Darling's Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor. The concert staff followed the rules by ending before the curfew, but there were still quite a few complaints.

This was the city's first waterfront concert of the summer. Tonight the City of Bangor plans to respond to the concert complaints. City officials said code enforcement staff is working with sound consultants to look at the sound data, including both decibel levels and frequency.

Joan Farley of Bangor said she wasn't able to sleep because of all the heavy racket.

"'Voom Voom' the drums go at the concert. 'Boom Boom' it echoes through the air. It's like you are in a jungle setting. It's like listening to a bunch of jungle drums."

She is furious with the amount of noise the concert brought.

"Turn the tone down, turn it down just so the people in there can hear it. Not the whole city."

Other people like Erica Nealley disagree and said the noise isn't overbearing.

"The bands aren't loud really when you think about it. You go a couple streets away and you can't hear them, so I don't think they get that loud."
