It’s summertime again, and this time of year brings the music festival season. Partying with friends, soaking up the sun, and listening to great bands make music festivals an unforgettable experience. But few festival-goers pay any thought to their hearing even though festivals put exceptional strain on our ears. A weekend packed with concerts and loud music can damage our sense of hearing and could lead to permanent hearing loss. It’s a high price that no fan should have to pay, which is why the Hear the World Foundation is offering some useful tips to help music lovers enjoy festivals without harming their hearing.
