UBC students to stage end-of-classes outdoor concert at a reasonable volume

UBC’s Student Union Okanagan (UBCSUO) is planning a safe campus event to mark the end of classes with an outdoor concert on Friday

UBC’s Student Union Okanagan (UBCSUO) is planning a safe campus event to mark the end of classes with an outdoor concert on Friday, April 10, from 6 to 10:45 p.m.

Professional DJs Zeds Dead and mainstream rap artist Waka Flock Flame headline the music lineup.

“We apologize to residents who live nearby UBC’s Okanagan campus that this managed, once-a-year sold-out student event will be noisy,” said UBCSUO’s president, Rocky Kim. “But we are taking every step to ensure this celebration complies with City of Kelowna bylaws and regulations governing outdoor public events.”

To do so, UBCSUO has obtained a special occasion permit from the City of Kelowna to assure compliance with all civic requirements for noise, crowd control and a safe environment;

Sound levels will be measured and if music exceeds 80 per cent of prescribed bylaw limits, the volume will be reduced.

The concert will end by 10:45 p.m. as specified by the permit and music content will comply with CRTC guidelines and UBC’s respectful workplace policy;

In the student union press release, they also state that RCMP, private security and student volunteers will be on site to ensure a safe environment;

Red Frogs Support Network, which specializes in educating about safe partying behaviours and promoting and providing non-alcoholic and/or diversionary activities will be on site.
