This is just utter stupidity. If you can't make noise, then simply move the event somewhere else. A headset is not going to give you the same feeling that you'd get if you could feel the bass, hear the cheers, and the people. Besides those people look like twats with those things on dancing  irked 


Not drinking, also isn't a solution!

How boring. Must be weird to see those people dance with no music in the background.

Noise patrols, sounds like they took a page out of the town where I went to college. The police went around with their noise recording machines to the houses where there were parties. If the noise that was coming from the house was greater than what they set, the person responsible for the party got a $100 fine.

Ouch, $100! That's a lot of money, but in the case of houses in residential areas I can understand that this is a nuisance. These festivals are usually well far awar from any place where people live.

"And as not all fans were tuned into the same DJ, it was "a laugh" to see people dancing to different music, he added."

This is hilarious. As soon as I got to the bit about being able to choose from two different DJs I got this horrid imagery of the awkwardness in the room with everyone feeling a different beat, then this quote confirmed the thought. I'd pay to see this. Stupid idea though.

Cheers,

Well with some of the line-up they have at Glastonbury this year I cant blame them for wanting to go to sleep, 3/4 of the bands they have there this year are utter tosh imo.
