City residents unhappy about Fringe noise
7News City residents unhappy about Fringe noise

The Adelaide Fringe festival has broken box office records, but organisers have come under fire for ignoring the impact on some city residents.

This year’s new addition, The Depot on Franklin Street, runs concerts late into the night.

But while crowds have returned night after night – the neighbouring residents in the supportive housing complex, Common Ground, are anything but entertained and say the noise has been unbearable.

Common Ground provides affordable housing for low income or homeless people - they now claim that's one reason they weren't considered, when venue sites were chosen.

Organisers of The Depot defended the noise levels saying they're five decibels lower than EPA and council regulations.
