Earth Frequency hits a dud note with Peak Crossing locals
THERE were some elements of the story on the Earth Frequency Festival (February 15) that I did not agree with.
The article states: "A profound sense of mutual respect pervades the festival".
There is no mutual respect for the property owners and residents along Mt Flinders Road, which is the sole entry and exit road to the festival venue.
There is a flagrant disregard to public safety, posted speed limit of 60 kmh, warning signs of wildlife and horses.
For every attendee that received a speeding fine there were numerous others that didn't get caught.
This poses a serious safety issue to residents and property owners along Mt Flinders Road.
We appreciated the integrity of the Queensland Police Service and the job they did in trying to control speeding and other issues, but realize they can't catch every offender.
The 11pm stage shut downs is partially correct.
Three stages were supposed to shut down and the Sanctuary stage continued to pump music all through the night and most times exceeding the ICC approved dba levels.
This came to pass because more than a few local residents were tired of hearing thumping music 24 hours a day that could be heard 7 km away.
The article was correct in acknowledging "residents have rejected the four-day-long disruption to the peace".
Thank God it is over and we can get some sleep.
