Videoke and Karaoke Regulation in Cavite


     Filipinos are known for their passion and love for music. In fact, numerous Filipino talents were bared and applauded in the international scene and local singing contests became a rounding gossip and mobbed with overwhelming attention. Because of this natural inclination to music, singing on videoke machines and karaoke systems during a gathering or even when you’re home alone became a trademark and is certified 100% Pinoy.

     Singing is one of the primary activities during reunions, parties, fiestas, or a family’s close-in Saturday night because it seems everyone has their fair share of hugot songs and can easily jive along all-time favorite videoke songs. However, this clean fun activity is now considered a threat to community’s peace due to the noise it produces. Because of the complains related to the activity, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, through the efforts of Hon. Kerby J. Salazar, enacted Provincial Ordinance No. 166, cited as “The Noise Ordinance in the Province of Cavite”. 

     To preserve peace and order, the Ordinance generally prohibits the playing of videoke machines or karaoke systems on public streets or road sides with volume that could disturb the quiet and comfort of the people. 2 days before an event, whoever desires to operate a videoke machine or karaoke systems must secure a written approval from the barangay who has jurisdiction over the area. It is also important to note that the allowed time of operation shall only be from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm on residential areas or until 12:00 midnight during celebrations of fiesta, and other special holidays. Operation in others areas is allowed from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, except on Friday and Saturday evenings when operation of such equipment shall be allowed until 12:00 midnight. The Ordinance also prohibits the operation of the said audio equipment and other amplified devices within 100 meters from public offices, places of worship, hospitals, schools and other educational institutions. It also entails that pictures or videos that are shown in videoke machines should be decent and congruous with public morals.

     Those who will fail to comply with the said ordinance will initially receive a verbal order to immediately cease the loud sounds sourced from the audio equipment. For second offense, a fine of P500.00 and/or imprisonment of 1 month and for 3rd offense, a fine of P1,000.00 and/or imprisonment of 2 months.
