Headliners of Glastonbury, The Killers, have broken the record for festival’s loudest set ever.

According to reports, Brandon Flowers and co headline set on the Pyramid Stage hit a whopping 106 decibels, becoming the loudest in history of the festival.

The Killers played a set of career-spanning songs, complete with covers and special guests last month and now it appears it was also historical. 

Back in 2007, The Killers had a headlining set at Glastonbury Festival and to no fault of their own, had multiple technical issues due to sound restrictions. Now 12 years later they took the stage again and it became a redemption story! 

Their set was the loudest in the festival’s history, according to Martin Audio, the company behind the Pyramid Stage’s speakers.

The band’s Saturday night set hit 106 decibels for fans in front of the stage, but thanks to technological improvements and in-time monitoring of wind speed and temperature it still remained under the 65 decibel restriction for off-site sound levels.
