ORGANISERS of Yellowfest 2 have apologised to disgruntled local residents who complained about the noise levels of the Torquay music festival this year.
Many Torquay residents took to social media to comment on the loud noise disturbances coming from the festival, and complaints were received from surrounding areas as far as Chelston and Babbacombe.
Organiser Sharon Cox said: “We had lots of complaints about the noise.
“We would like to apologise for any noise disturbances caused, we are really very sorry.”
Organisers were also disappointed in the festivals turn-out this year, claiming that the event would have been more of a success ‘if more people had supported it’, and have said that they do not know if they will host the event again next year.If you go to music festivals and concerts then you should protect your hearing.

Organiser Sharon Cox said: “The weather was good, the music was brilliant and the sound was great, but it would have been better if more people had supported it.
“There were not as many people at the festival as we would have liked, but the line-up was great. Local band Shooting Fish were excellent, and Oasish were really good.
“We had great support from all of the local breweries, it was just a shame there wasn’t more people in attendance.
“We would like to thank everyone who did come along to support us.
“Who knows if we will hold Yellowfest again next year.”
A variety of local bands took to the stage over for the two-day festival, which included performances from favourite South Devon bands Oasish, 59 Ford, Big Noise Choir and The Vinyl Avengers Northern Soul.
Although the sun shone for most of the festival, rain on Saturday evening meant that the nights headlining act The Steve Cradock Band, had to be cancelled, as the stage was too wet to play on.
“The weather was brilliant for the majority of the festival, however it was a real shame that two bands were rained off on Saturday evening,” said Sharon.
