Muse set so loud it smashed local council limit

It has been revealed that Muse’s headline set at Glastonbury Festival 2016 was so loud that it broke local council limits and caused dozens of complaints.

The British Rocker’s performance was recorded at 3db over the 65db limit outside of the festival site boundaries.

To put it in perspective, 65db is said to be the same as having a loud conversation in the same room as someone else.

Mendip District Council confirmed that 2016 provoked more than 20 noise complaints which was an increase from the previous festival.

The official report read, “On Friday evening a license condition was witnessed to be breached between 23.15pm and 00.04am by 3dB at the nearest specified location.

“This occurred at the end of the show and despite front of house levels being reduced to end the breach it was observed to continue for three consecutive 15 minute periods.”

Muse were said to be the only act to play louder than the limit.
