From June 28-30, the Edmonton EXPO Centre will host  BOMFest,  an  electronic  dance  music event produced by Boodang. We hosted BOMFest last September,  and we heard the concerns from our neighbours. This past April, we held a public community event where we invited members of the community to hear about the changes in effect for this year’s event as well as to voice their thoughts to our team in person. We are happy to keep an open dialogue with our community, and we are committed to providing a better experience for our neighbours this year.

Due to the nature of any outdoor music event, music will be heard surrounding neighbourhoods. As such, the Edmonton EXPO Centre is taking every step to  mitigate the  effect on  its neighbours.

Boodang and the Edmonton EXPO Centre are testing the implementation of a new sound system that has been used by other festivals in Canada to limit noise impact into surrounding neighbourhoods. The team from All Star Show Industries will be using sound-mapping software in addition to physical sound testing at key outlying areas to test the noise impact during soundcheck. Noise will then be monitored throughout the scheduled performances. Additionally, we have moved the higher intensity music inside to Hall D to help mitigate excess noise.

We will make every effort to work with Boodang and All Star Show Industries to improve the experience during this year’s event.
