Tunbridge Wells: Music from One Love festival 'too loud' say residents

By KentOnline reporter

It might be a festival of peace and love but it's shattering the peace and quiet.

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council (TWBC) has received a number of angry calls about the One Love Reggae and Ska Festival, which started yesterday.

Now in its 10th year, it's being held on the edge of Tunbridge Wells at Colebrook Lakes, off Kingstanding Way and continues until tomorrow.

But people living in the area have been complaining the music is too loud.

Dan B Tweeted: "What idiot keeps giving 3am licences to festival on land next to residential areas?" And James Crighton posted: "It is very loud at the moment. Too much bass."

While Jo Murphy said: "I can hear it above TV in Tonbridge with the windows closed!"
