Since 2008 Real World has been working with Bowers & Wilkins to curate a series of releases for their Society of Sound online community. This year for the first time we are coming together to present a Society of Sound stage at WOMAD Charlton Park (July 24 -27). This is also an opportunity to celebrate 25 years of Real World Records.
This is not your usual festival event. This will be an incredible sonic experience that brilliantly captures the intensity, beauty, and joy of both sound and music with a specially-designed B&W sound system. The Society of Sound stage will feature an eclectic array of sound pioneers and musical adventurers, celebrating the art of listening through live performances, DJ sets and interactive happenings. The line up will include Real World artists 9Bach, Adrian Sherwood alongside a rare DJ set from the legendary David Holmes, some fabulous sonic strangeness from The Radiophonic Workshop, and an album being created live on stage by world-famous beatboxer and artist Beardyman. More artists to be announced.
