hubbub (noun) mixture of loud noises of people talking.
The noise caused by a large number of people talking among themselves or all of them talking at the same time is hubbub. The hubbub of a festive crowd is the confusing noise caused by the talking of a large number of people, all at the same time, while celebrating and enjoying a festive occasion.
- It was difficult for us to make out what the speaker was trying to say, because the hubbub caused by the audience who were all talking at the same time drowned his voice.
- The hubbub among the audience died down as every one became silent to listen, as the great speaker stood up to make his speech.
