Music Festivals and Your Hearing Health
Summer is a time for picnics at the park, family outdoor activities and for many it’s a time for attending music festivals. The problem with music festivals is they can cause damage to a person’s hearing health. What can you do to prevent this damage from happening? In this article we will go over some steps that will help in the prevention of hearing loss.
Hearing damage can occur from prolonged exposure to loud noise. Music festivals, such as Lollapalooza, can last for hours, leaving your unprotected hearing at the risk of damage. Using protective devices such as earplugs, will help in reducing the level of noise your hearing is exposed to.
It is also important to take breaks from the constant exposure to loud noise during a festival, as well as maintaining an appropriate distance from the speakers.
