So, I did some testing with one of the save, and we've come to some conclusions:
I've tried to find some sort of workaround, but using MC Tuner to disallow autonomy seems either difficult or impractical. I tried disallowing just about anything with dance or speaker that I could find, and the error still spammed. Using the delete object cheat seems more practical (deleting the wall speakers) but you'd still get the 4 or so LEs from just clicking on them, and they'd just respawn after each festival, anyway. For now, the only workaround that seems "worth while" is to simply avoid festivals. If anyone has found anything better, please let us know!
Update: while this error seems most common to occur in and around festivals, we've been seeing it from people who have not attended any festivals at all. It appears all stereos may be affected by this bug!. We've even seen it from Robots! Solutions/work arounds that are better than "avoiding all festivals" and "delete all stereos" would be appreciated!!

Add me to the list. I've get LE's every time a I show up at ANY festival pretty much as soon as my sim arrives. I removed all mods and repaired my game twice. Something happened with the Tiny Living update to break the speakers as I've never had this problem before the patch.

Yup even with avoiding all festivals I am still getting more LE's than I've ever seen in my game. They must either be from a home stereo or wall speakers at a lounge, etc. I am not currently using any mods or CC.

I also got an LE just by opening the game. Folk at the Deaderpool Discord linked me through to this thread. I noticed earlier that my sims didn't get the focused moodlet from listening to New Age music on the stereo. That may also be caused by that bug. I play on a MacBook Pro with some mods (like MCCC) and cc installed.

I didn't even go to a festival and I got one. There might be one occurring in my district, though. I don't own any stereos so my best guess is that a festival was going on and some Sim decided to dance.
