COACHELLA WEEKEND 2 RACKS UP AN ADDITIONAL $51,000 IN FINES
The city of Los Angeles is known for its vibrant nightlife and its famous music festivals. However, these festivals can come with hefty fines if they go over the city’s sound curfew.
Goldenvoice was fined $51,000 for breaking the sound ordinance at Coachella weekend 2. Friday went over 2 minutes costing $20k, Sunday went over 16 minutes costing $31k. That is still less than half of weekend one’s $117,000 fine.
The Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs states that the sound curfew is designed to protect residents from excessive noise pollution. Any event that exceeds the allowed sound level after 10 pm is in violation of the sound curfew and subject to fines. Organizers of music festivals must be aware of the sound curfew and make sure that noise levels do not exceed limits.
As the summer music festival season approaches, many cities across the country are making sure to enforce sound curfew laws. This is particularly true for festivals like Coachella, which has become one of the most popular music festivals in the world.
The city of Indio takes sound curfew laws very seriously, and they are willing to take legal action against anyone who violates them. This includes not only festival-goers, but also the organizers of the festival itself.
The statement underscores the importance of sound curfew laws and serves as a warning to all music festival attendees that they should be aware of the laws in their city. By following the sound curfew laws, music festivals like Coachella can ensure that they remain a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
