Amphitheater Looks To Reduce Concert Sound Carry

BEND, OR -- With concert season approaching, the Hayden Homes Amphitheater is working to mitigate noise issues. The first concerts of the season are scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend. 

Amphitheater officials met with City of Bend staff in December to discuss a plan to dampen the noise heard in neighborhoods, and even in homes.

Bend Police took six noise complaints during the October concert season finale. The subject of loud concerts even came up during a mayoral candidate forum last Fall.

An Old Mill District spokesperson told KBND News in an e-mail they are still finalizing which tools and technology will be most effective for the amphitheater. And promised to provide more details when they are available.

The city’s noise ordinance allows for no more than 70 decibels from 7 am to 10 pm, which the amphitheater did not exceed last year, according to reports.

The amphitheater held over 50 concerts last year, and have so far, announced 32 for this season. We’ve got the full schedule here
