If it isn’t in the contract, they can’t enforce it. They also can’t make you pay for the security guard.

i agree with pp…they cant change a contract that was already signed by all parties without a proper amendment which would include you giving them the okay on those changes…sorry venue, lol

I would think at best if the music was too loud too late… they would just ask you to turn it down… then maybe call the cops…  That really sucks.. I would change the venue if I were you only because I hate being screwed…

I don’t think they can do that- you need to talk to a contract lawyer.

Did the contract say that you COULD do the things you’re now being forbidden to do? (Camping, sound system, not be monitered by a guard) It’s one thing if the venue people are trying to change the written terms, like “no time limit” becomes “10pm”, but if all you had was a verbal assurance that you could have people camp and so forth, they might have a better case for prohibiting it post signing.  Particularly if the contract has any ambiguous terms that allow them to make rules for safety and protection of property.

Wow, this is unacceptable. Is it too late for you to ask for a refund and book somewhere else?

I’ve heard of some places (like vineyards) that have gotten in trouble for hosting parties and weddings that get loud and out of control in an area that is normally very rural and quiet.  It’s not in their zoning codes to have such activiies there and once things start getting reported they have to make changes.

I wish you the best but doubt they will change if they’ve gotten in trouble.

hmmm considering your date is so soon I would try and talk to them tell them you understand the new rules but under such close notice you will only be able to compromise.  No loud noises after 11 maybe and try to keep it under control.  Maybe ask where you can park trailers where it’s less noticable and any other things that would appeal to the complaints but not interfeer much with your booked plans.

@violetmae: Is that the exact wording of the contract?  If so, they can’t keep your security deposit just for noise reasons.
