We had music too but refused to crank it up enough to compete and thus were drowned out the rest of the week (I am ignoring the fact that our 30 or so folks could not sleep when we finally turned in).
"Sound camps" are supposed to be relegated to areas where they provide mimimal disruption to camps which are not strictly about blasting loud music.
The rule for sound outside of the designated areas is 300 watts. What bullshit. Being into sound setups myself, both nearby camps were running no less than 4,000 watts at full, ear-bleed levels.
Complaints to the BRR achieved nada. They claim that "over 300 watts" offending camps get 3 warnings and then get their plug pulled....never happened!
My ears are just now stopping the ringing that makes you think you were at a rock concert. Ouch!
Great way for inconsiderate neighbors to ruin other's hard work and our own BM experience!!!!!
I hope BRC management gets the message and corrects this for 2006!!

Sound barges need to stay out of the burbs after midnight. It is very plane those that come out late are there to annoy others. There was a sound stage way out in the distance. There music was crappy, loud and over amped. There MC run out of stuff and was just talking to hear his head raddel. I dought if anyone was there by that stage. Figred it wass around 10:oo while I was at 6:oo about 3 in the morning. Wish soome one would tell the stupid fuck how bad he sounded.
