Bowers & Wilkins ‘Sound System’ to make  London debut at the Festival of Sound next month

British speaker innovator Bowers & Wilkins is bringing its legendary Sound System to the music and ‘luxury audio’ event Festival of Sound (formerly The Indulgence Show) on 28-30 September at Novotel London West, Hammersmith International Centre. 

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. Some of the world’s most renowned DJs have played on Sound System, notably John Talabot, Floating Points, and Jackmaster.

Structurally, Sound System is made up of a four-way active loudspeaker design comprised of four stacks which act as its foundation. Each stack stands over 3.2 metres tall. 

Sound System is capable of an extraordinary 120dB. 

Vernon Hamblin, producer of the Festival of Sound, says: “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.”
