Festival of Sound - The Music and Audio Show has announced its live music line-up which takes place between 28-30 September at Novotel London West, Hammersmith.

The trade show highlights hi-fi, portable audio and music alongside live music performances, with exhibitors for 2018 including Sony, JBL and Flare Audio.

The show will present a cross section of musical genres in the 1,000 capacity Chablis Suite with the first confirmed artist being Unsung Singers, who have sung backing vocals for David Bowie, Stevie Wonder and Tina Turner. 

Renowned producer Mike Moran who has worked with the likes of Queen, Ozzy Osbourne and George Harrison will join the choir in his musical director role. 

The band will also give the audience a peak behind the curtain at what went on during the recording sessions and tours of some of the biggest artists in the world.

Festival of Sound musical producer Chris Kimsey, who has worked on over 15 Rolling Stones releases, plus Led Zeppelin, Tom Jones, Deacon Blue and many others, commented: “It’s a great honour to be able to bring the Unsung Singers to Festival of Sound. The artists they have worked with and the stories they have to tell will make this concert one that music enthusiasts are not going to want to miss.”

Vernon Hamblin, Festival of Sound organiser, added: “If you’ve ever listened to an album or seen a concert from the likes of Bowie or Clapton, you’ve heard members of the Unsung Singers at work. They’ve toured the world and worked on the biggest songs ever recorded, it is a delight therefore to be able to present them at Festival of Sound. We know the show visitors and music fans who come just for our live concerts are going to love them.”

Tickets cost £15 priced per person per day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Please purchase 2 tickets if you wish to attend 2 days. Children under the age of 12 go free when accompanied by a paying adult.
