It is the first year that AEG has promoted the shows and that Capital Sound has been asked to undertake this high profile role. The company is understandably delighted by the appointment.

“We are very pleased to have been asked by AEG to provide the sound for the Hyde Park main stage, using the Martin Audio MLA system and DiGiCo consoles,” says Capital Sound project manager Martin Connolly. “Following extensive listening tests, the system was chosen thanks to its exceptional controllability and audio quality. We know it will perform extremely well and are really looking forward to the shows.”
