Festival of Sound a must for music lovers

A festival with a difference comes to London this September – and while it’s for music lovers, the headliners are the brands, not the bands.

The Festival of Sound is the new name for the Indulgence Show, which demonstrates the newest and best in music audio technology. Speakers, headphones, portable audio and streaming devices will be showcased at Novotel London West, Hammersmith International Centre, on September 28-30.

Record producers will be on hand to give seminars to wannabes, while the most exciting tech will of course be available for you to try before you buy. Chris Kimsey, Gary Langan and Liam Nolan are just three of the industry bigwigs scheduled to attend. Expect a number of behind-the-desk annecdotes about producing albums for the likes of Adele, The Rolling Stones, Rita Ora and Led Zeppelin, charting music production across several decades right up to today – and the future.

Speaking of the future of music, the festival team are also teaming up with a charity in the capital to find budding recording artists to perform live at the show, too.

Vernon Hamblin, producer of the Festival of Sound, said: “The first two years of our consumer show were naturally moving further and further into the realms of music in all its guises. 

“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.”
