Noida Sunburn Festival: SC Refuses Urgent Hearing Of Plea Against Ban Of Loud Music

The Supreme Court today (October 23, 2019) declined to give an urgent hearing to a plea filed by the organizers of the Noida Sunburn festival challenging the order of the Allahabad High Court which has levied a ban on speakers and DJs between 5 pm to 9 pm.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi while scrapping the plea observed that the commercial electronic dance music festival is just a noise in the name of music.

"My brother (Justice Bobde) says that it is noise going on in the name of music. We are old people...let it come in due course," CJI Gogoi said.

The festival is scheduled to take place in Noida, Uttar Pradesh on November 9, 2019.

The organizers had moved the apex court challenging the order of the Allahabad High Court and stated that under the noise pollution rules, there is a provision to grant written permission if the decibel levels are controlled.
