What’s that noise? Folsom Field sound system to undergo testing Aug. 15–26

The roar of the crowd that is a Folsom Field staple will receive a boost this season with the addition of a state-of-the-art sound system that will be tested for the first time Aug. 15–26.  

Students and faculty returning to campus for the fall semester, as well as community members in the proximity of the stadium, are likely to hear a variety of noises during that testing period, including music, that at times will be loud.  These tests are necessary to ensure the system is completely functional in time for the first football game of the season. Testing will begin at 8 a.m. and will generally be concluded by 5 p.m. daily.    

“These much-needed and long overdue sound system improvements will greatly enhance the visitor experience not just for football games but any event at Folsom Field,” said Jason DePaepe, CU Boulder deputy athletic director. “From an entertainment standpoint, as well as providing important PA messaging, this new sound system will make attending an event at Folsom Field even more exciting.”   

Fans will be able to hear the new fully functional sound system for themselves when the CU Buffs begin their 2022 football season at Folsom Field on Sept. 2 against TCU.
