One resident says the music travelled as far as Tsim Sha Tsui The government's environmental watchdog has received six complaints about excessive noise since the Harbour Fest concerts started last Friday. One resident in Tsim Sha Tsui claimed it was too loud even across the harbour. The Environmental Protection Department (EPD) said the complaints were over noise levels generated by rehearsals and concert performances. Four of the complaints came from business offices and two from residences. A resident of New World Apartment in Tsim Sha Tsui told the South China Morning Post: 'The speakers are all facing towards Kowloon side. 'As there is no barrier at all, you can almost sing along. 'On Saturday night, because of a different type of concert, there wasn't much noise. But it all depends on the types of bands. When it comes to people like Santana, it's going to be very noisy again.' He said he tried to lodge a telephone complaint with the department on Friday after Prince began to perform. But there was only a pre-recorded message giving a hotline number for the Harbour Fest organiser. 'I have checked with EPD and they apparently assumed that there would be no noise on the Kowloon side,' he said. 'They did tests in Wan Chai and Queensway, but did not expect the noise to come across the harbour.' A department spokeswoman conceded Harbour Fest had failed to provide a staffed complaints hotline when the festival opened on Friday, but the problem had been resolved. 'Our monitoring indicated that their hotline service has been working since the afternoon of the second day of performance.' Monitoring showed noise levels from the concerts were within the legal limit, she said. Harbour Fest spokesmen did not return calls on the issue yesterday.
