White Paper – Music is not Noise

Any future environmental noise regulation must safeguard the cultural rights to live music and artistic freedom.

This paper provides guidance for the drafting of a good urban policy in relation to live music.

The recommendations come from a working group comprising live music experts from across Europe who worked together in Antwerp and Madrid to lay out the statement ‘Music is Not Noise’ and qualify this with facts to illustrate the argument and why it is important.
