City’s Rifflandia noise level claims far from accurate: resident

Neighbour predicts revolt if changes not made for next year's music festival

Re: Rifflandia noise within limits (News, Sept. 18)

The city claims that Rifflandia operated within the limits from a decibel perspective.

How can they say this? Three blocks from Royal Athletic Park, the noise was so loud my windows vibrated and I could not hold a conversation with guests at my home. At times I could not even use my telephone due to the volume.

Three days of this can only be described as a form of abuse. After enduring too much Rifflandia, I expect a reduction in my property taxes and an apology from the city. If this happens again, there will be a neighbourhood revolt and it won’t be pretty.
