Eight noise complaints were received by Winchester City Council's out of hours noise team whilst the festival took place. Although they were relatively low, there are concerns the the noise levels at nearby properties occasionally rises above the limits stipulated by the licence conditions.

Noise monitoring teams were in operation throughout each night of the event and checked noise levels at a number of locations, including complainant’s properties.

Deputy Councillor, Rob Humby, has said “Overall we are pleased that the Boomtown Festival was well managed, and delighted it was enjoyed by so many. However, if there has been a breach of the licence conditions it must be dealt with to ensure the interests of our local communities are protected."
