The Flanders region in Belgium has a law since 2013 about sound levels at the ears of the audience. This law states that, for large events, the sound level should be kept to an Leq of 100 dB(A) averaged over 60 minutes. As a derivative, for a short period of 15 minutes, the average should not be higher than Leq = 102 dB(A). In this presentation results are shown in both dB(A) and dB(C) levels. Those results are measured at various outdoor dance events in 2013 and 2014. Measurement details of the Tomorrowland 2014 festival will be shown with more details and with a short description of the decibel guarding procedures.
