A party without music is like a carbonated drink without fizz. But going deaf or having ringing in your ears that simply won’t go away, is a very sad memento of a good party. So go easy on your ears and be sure to wear ear plugs if the sound level exceeds 80 dB(A). Earplugs can be bought at the merchandise- and info stand.
