Mayor’s Statement Regarding Concert Noise

After a relatively quiet 2021 concert season at FivePoint Amphitheatre, the City saw a spike in noise complaints earlier this month, with 80% of complaints tied to two concerts in particular. The City has been working closely with Live Nation, the operator of the venue, to implement changes as soon as possible to better control noise levels in the community, including:

  • Adjusted placement and direction of amphitheatre speakers.
  • Enhanced monitoring of the speakers and soundboard during concerts.
  • Installation of sound absorption blankets on the back of and between bleachers.

In addition to these short-term measures, the City is also reviewing its noise ordinance to ensure that the low-end bass tones that have generated many of the complaints are properly regulated.  Should community members experience further noise or disruption during concerts at the amphitheater, call the Irvine Police Department Dispatch at 949-724-7000. For general information, call Code Enforcement at 949-724-6326.
