Sound regulations in Europe

In February 2019, Live DMA organized a Working group on the topic of sound regulations in Europe. The aim of this Working Group was to achieve an inventory of the various sound regulations ruling the European live music scenes and exchange on the various difficulties these regulations bring to the live music sector. This Working Group highlighted the many disparities in European sound regulations and confirmed the idea that most of these regulations are not adapted to the realities of the sector and they can threaten the diversity and liberties of the music venues, clubs and festivals as well as artistic diversity.

Below, you will find a slide summing up the information and positions exchanged during the Working Group session as well as technical sheets that detail the sound regulation for each country, feel free to download them!
