Love your ears
Please take care of your ears! With music above 87dB it is smart to use earplugs with a special music filter. You still hear the music perfectly, conversations remain intelligible and most important of all, you prevent hearing damage. Not yet in possession of a pair of quality earplugs? During We Are Electric PartyPlug earplugs from Alpinewill be available at the Alpine earplugbooth. These are super comfortable, no more ringing after the event and they are reusable, so you protect your ears not only at We Are Electricbut on other festivals as well. Love your ears!
Disabled people can certainly visit We Are Electric Weekender 2019!
