PARKING IS AVAILABLE AT THE COLLEGE ON THE DAY
The Forbidden Forest Festival is taking place on 1 May at Donington Park. The Forbidden Forest brings a mix of electronic music such as bass music, house and
tech house. The event will be played across three stages, holding a host of artists and will operate from 12.00 to 00.00hrs. Up to 5,000 people will be in attendance.
Following some residents being affected by noise from the Zoo Project festival event in 2013, the council has been working with the event organiser to develop and agree an event management plan. More »
Together we've agreed the following to further reduce the likelihood of residents being disturbed by unreasonable noise levels.
- The event organiser has appointed a professional noise specialist
- The noise specialist will be monitoring noise levels at locations within and surrounding the site
- The sound systems will be designed and set up in such a way as to minimise noise impact to residents
- The organisers will make changes to the orientation of amplification equipment to reduce the likelihood of noise disturbance
- The sound system will be designed to limit rear projection of low frequency sound to the rear of the stages
- All music from stages will cease at 00.00hrs
Resident telephone number – 01530 454545
The council will be monitoring the noise levels during the event. If residents feel they are experiencing unreasonable levels of noise during the event, they can call our 24 hour emergency call centre on 01530 454789. This is an emergency response service – we are advising residents not to call this number simply to report that they can hear noise from the event. All resident concerns will immediately be passed onto the event organiser, on site. A noise consultant will investigate the complaint and if noise levels are deemed unacceptable, immediate action will be taken by the event organiser to reduce the levels of the noise. This will be through formal requests by consultants to the sound engineers and event manager.
Alternatively if residents wish to report their concerns after the event has finished they can contact us by calling 01530 454545 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com » Less
