British speaker gurus, Bowers & Wilkins, will be setting the stage at Festival of Sound with their excellent Sound System.

Festival of Sound lands at Novotel London West, Hammersmith International Centre on September 28th. The three-day event combines exhibitors of luxury audio, live music and not-to-be-missed seminars. Also performing live will be the Sound System by Bowers & Wilkins.

This year at Festival of Sound Chris Difford, Beth Nielsen Chapman, UNKLE co-founders Lavelle and Philip Sheppard, as well as JJ Jeczalik and Gary Langan, co-founders of Art of Noise, amongst others, will take to the stage to perform on Sound System.

If you love live music, then this is an experience not to be missed.

Bowers & Wilkins Sound System draws upon the company's 50+ years of acoustic excellence to produce the ultimate PA system. However, calling it, a PA system seems to do it a disservice. Firstly, this system boasts both the range and clarity of top-end hi-fi speakers. Additionally, it still has the raw power required to deliver sound to thousands of music lovers.

The Sound System is one of a kind and is not available to buy. This uniqueness adds to the legendary status that it has garnered in the music space and festival scene. Furthermore, Festival of Sound will most likely be the most intimate setting you'll get to experience it in.

Sound System made its debut at Primavera Sound in 2014. Since then, it has gone on to tour multiple summer festivals including WOMAD, Oya, and Festival No. 6.

Sound System is made up of a four-way active loudspeaker design, comprising four stacks that act as its foundation. Each stack stands over 3.2 metres tall. Power-wise the system is capable of an extraordinary 120dB and delivers bass that is not only amazingly powerful but also controlled.

This year, Festival of Sound (formerly The Indulgence Show) is even more music-focused than before, making Sound System the perfect sounding accompaniment.

Vernon Hamblin, the producer of the Festival of Sound, told StereoNET:

“Our concert series is set to feature Chris Difford, UNKLE co-founder James Lavelle & Philip Sheppard, Art of Noise co-founders JJ Jeczalik and Gary Langan, Unsung Singers, Antonio Forcione, Beth Nielsen Chapman and many more; so we wanted to make a statement when it came to the PA system the music will be heard through – after all this is an audio show. To do this, we have the honour of using Bowers & Wilkins' Sound System, which will provide the concert goers with the high-quality hi-fi sound the brand is known for in an intimate live music environment.”

We are incredibly excited about this and look forward to attending the Festival of Sound in just a few weeks!
