Bass Literally Heard a Mile Away at Safe in Sound Orlando

This past weekend, Orlando was host to Safe in Sound Festival, the hard bass oriented gathering that features top tier dubstep acts such as Destroid, Zeds Dead, Adventure Club, and Flux Pavillion. The 6,000+ attendees of the event Friday night got to enjoy a massive, venue-shaking 150,000 watt sound system. However, according to local news reports, people in and around the venue weren't the only ones able to feel the sound.

Dozens of noise complaints about the bass were called into local authorities up to a mile away from the venue location. Reports of shaking walls and car alarms being triggered by the bass were so numerous they led to an official complaint being made to the county police commissioner. While locals seem less than appreciative of the antics by Safe in Sound's performers, festival headliners Destroid took nothing but pride in the incident. A humorous trailer, which is embedded below, was posted by the live dubstep group (featuring news reporting on the incident) may be the best example of artist self-promo you'll ever see.
