Society of Sound: Bowers & Wilkins Live

With the Bowers & Wilkins Sound System confirmed to return to the WOMAD festival for a fourth year this summer, the Society of Sound release for June is a timely reminder of what happened last year.

During the weekend, the WOMAD festival audience were treated to three days of eclectic musical programming, provided by a mix of DJs, live bands, presentations and hands-on events, all delivered through the unrivalled listening experience of the Sound System: the acoustic engineering of Bowers & Wilkins flagship hi-fi speakers on a massive scale.

Bowers & Wilkins Live provides a chance to experience the highlights of last year’s programming, with each artist choosing a track from their performance to feature on the compilation.
