City awaits flood of complaints from Oracle party

Oracle’s annual Open World party is expected to draw 25,000 people to Treasure Island, and it’s expected to draw complaints from each one of the island’s 3,000 residents.

“We’re trying to mitigate potential problems,” said the acting director of the Entertainment Commission, Jocelyn Kane. “Because it’s a huge party on a Wednesday night, it does pose some inconveniences.”

Kane said the Entertainment Commission has reached out to neighbors to let them know about the party. There will also be a sound inspector working during the party to find out just how loud the party gets.

There were plenty of complaints last year, and judging by the list of entertainers at this year’s “Rockopolis” event, it doesn’t seem like Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is too worried about disturbing the neighbors.
