Foos Belfast Show Prompts Noise Complaints

Friday, August 24th 2012 11:30

Residents complain up to four miles away from venue

The band's performance at the Tennants Vital Festival in Belfast drew around 140 complaints (120 to the local council, 20 to the local police) from local residents who complained that it was too loud. 

Businesswoman Grainne McGarvey told the BBC: "I pretty much heard every ooh and ah and beat of the drum."

Another local resident, Eileen Fee (who lives about a mile away from the venue) said it was so loud her "windows shook".

She added: "I just thought I was at the concert, that's how loud it was. It was really impossible to do anything else at home."

The band, who headline Leeds Festival tonight and Reading Festival on Sunday, responded with a very simple message on Twitter:

"A wise man once said... Rock and Roll ain't noise pollution. Rock and Roll ain't gonna die."
