And there you have it. The key difference.

I'm curious. Has anyone ever heard of any other open air concert venue in a populated area that allowed middle of the night fireworks and loud music until 4 am?

I'm still asking.....who thought this would be okay.....anywhere.

80000 drunken NASCAR fans driving home, and 43 cars with 750 HP open exhausts is no problem for you rubes....but something you hayseeds don't relate to makes a little noise, and "Oh my God! Sign a petition!"
And if you think I'm wrong about the NASCAR race and drinking, you haven't been there.....colossal, staggering amounts of alcohol consumed there.....many folks drinking from very early in the morning all through the day. Pure and simple hypocrisy.
The last time I checked alcohol is perfectly legal for anyone over the age of 21. Were all those drugs at this event legal? The races have never been a problem and certainly haven't kept several communities up until 4a.m. The Joliet city officials are ignorant and so are all you ravers. Who cares about the exhaust? Look what you buttheads did to all the animals in the wild for 3 straight days. Did you think they wanted to rave too. You cannot compare a Nascar race to an EDC drugged out clown festival. It's apples and oranges plain and simple. All you EDC people are a bunch of liberal hippies who have no reasoning ability, so I know it's a hard concept for you all.

I think most people would agree that little or no complaints were filed with authorities regarding the festival itself, the crowds or the type of music. Hip, hip, hooray for all those who hit financial paydirt and for all the rave fans who had a great time. The fact that you do not recognize the time as the problem and don't even care makes you, in your words, the simpleton.

Rahm will reap all the same benefits as will the rave fans. The big difference is that someone on his end used common sense in the planning stages.

Where were all you complainers when they built 355 practically in my back yard?

I have noise 24 hours a day plus fumes.I can't sell my house and my kids now have respiratory problems.

I call every elected official to put up sound barriers to no avail.

Where were you? I forgot most of you like the convenience of 355.

In regards to the concert,you learn to live with it.I have to.I wish I had 3 days a year.

It is 3 lousy days.You will get used to it,I have.

Count your blessings that it is only 3 days and not 24 hours!

You don't care about the times? Huh? That's what the whole issue is about. Talk about a simpleton. The fest you are referring to is NOT the EDC, therefore the poster who said Rahm did not want the EDC in Chicago was correct. DUH! How about naming any other outdoor festival in Chicago or the suburbs that ends at 4 O'clock in the morning? Let us know what you come up with.
