New Sound Survey

Amphitheater management has informed area residents that there is a new feedback system in place for concerts this year.

Residents of the Town of Morrison and Jefferson County that are affected by concert sound from Red Rocks Amphitheatre are encouraged to submit a sound survey whenever concert sound is audible, even if it is not intrusive or annoying.

This system is more complex than the simple polls we used here last year, and will require confirmation of residence. Because this is direct information to Arts & Venues Denver, the agency that manages Red Rocks Amphitheatre, your responses to them will be important. However, we don’t yet know whether those results will be shared publicly before the end of the season. (If we find out, we’ll let you know.)

There is also a call line with a new option for reporting noise issues. This phone will be staffed on concert days, and should be answered by a person. That person can fill out the survey for you when you call. The line can, however, be busy and there may be wait times.

Concert phone line:
720-865-2494, option 4

We would appreciate your sharing comments here or by email as well, so they can be made public as the season proceeds.

Thanks for your help!

What You Can Do

We just emailed this flyer to interested parties being affected by excessive noise from certain concerts: HELP STOP THE NOISE AT RED ROCKS Lots of suggestions there!

Keep track of which concerts run late into the night and create disturbing noise or vibration levels where you live. Check out the current 2014 schedule here to help record what you experience.

You can also RATE EACH CONCERT. We’ve set up easy Ratings polls, and will update results in graphs like this as the season progresses. Look for a new poll for each concert. Be sure to let us know your general location as well.

If you have concerns, please share them with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and City Council members. Be sure to copy the Town of Morrison and Jefferson County Commissioners. Let them know when you’re experiencing impacts from concerts and how it affects your neighborhood. See Who to Call for contact info.
