Christ I hate that shit. It is completely antithetical to what meditation is. Buddha actually forbade the enjoyment of music to his monks, AN 8.41:
"All arahants, for as long as life lasts, have given up singing and dancing, the playing of musical instruments and the watching of entertainments, which are stumbling blocks to that which is wholesome."
as well as the fact that seclusion is necessary to enter the most basic stages of meditation, AN 5.28:
"There is the case where a monk—quite secluded from sensuality, secluded from unskillful qualities—enters & remains in the first jhāna: rapture & pleasure born of seclusion, accompanied by directed thought & evaluation. He permeates & pervades, suffuses & fills this very body with the rapture & pleasure born of seclusion."
So whenever your new age friends start playing ringing bowls or whateverthehell you can confidently tell them to shut up and fuck off. In a compassionate way, of course.
Really just camping alone is the only way to guarantee a decent experience.
