Because music-induced hearing disorders and noise pollution from concerts emerge at the crossroads of technology, culture, and society, this paper argues that multidisciplinary approaches are required to address these two issues. Even though noise regulations and hearing risk-mitigation policies may be different, best practices originate from procedures and policies that are developed from an understanding of the multiple stakeholder perspectives. Each stakeholder has a unique perspective but these conflicting differences must be reconciled one way or another. Technology may offer options.
