EVENT: Festival of Sound, London, Sep 28th 2018

The indulgence Show has rebranded as the Festival of Sound and will be bringing the industry’s leading high-quality audio, headphones, portable audio, and streaming products back to the Capital for the first time in a decade.

The event will take place between 28th – 30th September at Hammersmith’s Novotel London West, and the organisers say the new name reflects the “exciting progression and evolution of the event in embracing all things music”.

The event promises to feature the global premiere of some of the world’s most expensive audio products, vibrant product demonstrations and innovative equipment showcases. There will also be live musical acts from renowned artists and individual buskers, as well as lessons to master musical instruments.

Festival of Sound will also host record producer seminars where visitors can try out, listen to and be bowled over by internationally-acclaimed audio and musical brands.

“The first two years of our consumer show were naturally moving further and further into the realms of music in all its guises,” explained Vernon Hamblin, producer of the Festival of Sound. “Whether that was through the abundance of quality products and technologies on display enabling consumers to listen to music effectively at home or on the move. The vinyl fairs and musical instruments on to the live performances from individual artists and renowned bands.

“Therefore, to reflect this evolution and to reinforce the pervading musicality of the event it made sense to rebrand to The Festival of Sound, The Music and Audio Show. After all, it’s what we do best.”

He added: “We’re extremely excited about this year’s event; we have so many surprises in store, which we will be revealing over the coming months. We’re confident the exhibitors, brands, live performances, seminars and other innovations we have lined up will appeal to a larger, broader audience, including younger people who enjoy music and musical artists. The Festival of Sound is all about the music. So, whether you’re eight or 80 there will be something for everyone at the Festival of Sound.”
