The dancers and people down front want to feel it in their chest.  I have to please that crowd, and not make it too loud.  It's a tough tight-rope to walk!  Thanks Sarge!

When someone says the sound level was "perfect"  - that is pretty good.
 
That is what I usually go for - "perfect".
 
I wonder about setting up some extra - directional - speakers to make sure the dance area is hopping but the lawn seats are not?  Of course the dancers want the "low end" - which is NOT very directional??

I keep a stash of hearing protection in every vehicle, shed, garage, barn and family residence. I get very annoyed at the occasion that I have failed to find them.

I thought the volumes at the Bean (my first time!) were reasonable, unlike festivals I have attended in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. 

At our local festivals there seems to be a philosophy of using every possible watt to drive the subs to stupid levels, adversely effecting the quality of the overall sound, and on a number of occasions causing me to walk away from bands I wanted to hear. 

When up front by the stage at the Bean (2012) I needed (and used) ear protection, and I avoided standing right in front of the speaker even with protection.  When behind the stage at the bottom of the hill in my tent, I could hear fine, though it was a little bass heavy.  At the beer pavilion and in the back third up the hill from the stage it was fine without ear protection, but it was more difficult to see the stage details at that distance.  In the middle was at the threshold of needing hearing protection. 

You can never please everyone.  It was plenty loud, but if you cut the volume too much more it might not be clear at the back and at the beer tent.  People should choose their seats based on how loud they like it and whether they brought ear protection. 

At the Bean I really enjoyed the music from the acts on stage and participating in the jams at Cabin 12.    I am glad that Eric encouraged me on MBH to come over to the Bean and to check out this forum.  The Cabin 12 jammers were awesome and welcomed a stranger to join the fun.  I joined this forum and now read it daily.

The volume was fine at the Bean this year.  I was at my camp, other peoples camp, in my chair at the stage area and many times right down in front.  Everything was good.
 
Remember we are camping at music festival.
 
And just to stop the confrontation, yes I do believe previous years there were volume issues so I am not a volume lover.  Not this year.  A okay in my book.

If your ears don't seem to be clean, they will feel gluey and you'll be tempted to grab that cotton swab or key. And if wax utterly obstructs your auditory meats, you'll expertise hearing impairment. however do not take matters into your own hands! Visit your doctor, United Nations agency will safely take away the wax build-up.

But if you wish to do assuaging the wax reception, gently clean the outer portion of your auditory meats with a wet washrag. If your ear still feels blocked, you must decision your doctor and have the earwax removed.
