FAIRFIELD - The Gathering of the Vibes kicked off Thursday in Bridgeport and police in neighboring Fairfield say they have already gotten several calls about the noise.

The annual music celebration takes place at Seaside Park.

At about 2 a.m. Friday, Fairfield police posted a message on their Facebook page saying they were inundated with calls about loud noise from the concert.

They wanted to remind Fairfield residents that they do not have jurisdiction over the concert, and they provided a number for Bridgeport police.

Sound technicians say a new sound system that debuted this year is meant to enhance concert-goers’ experience. They say that to their knowledge, there have been no complaints from neighbors in Bridgeport or elsewhere.

The last band in the Saturday schedule will start playing at 4 a.m. on Sunday.
