    Henley Festival is an annual, five-day experience that celebrates the best of international and UK music, art, food and comedy in a quintessentially British location. The Festival began as an idea in 1983 to bring music and culture to the town of Henley-on-Thames––and sound production company RG Jones Audio Engineering has been involved in the five-day, black tie affair almost since the beginning––fielding Martin Audiobased PA systems on the various stages for much of that time. In 2016, the Festival… View this story

    Twenty One Pilots, with music falling somewhere between the genres of alternative rock, electropop, hip hop, and indie, has captured worldwide attention since the 2015 release Blurryface. Inevitably, this has led to playing bigger shows than the band has ever seen before. Right now, Twenty One Pilots is in the midst of an 11-month tour dubbed the “Emotional Roadshow World Tour.” The band performs at venues ranging from amphitheaters the size of Berkeley, California’s 8,500-capacity Greek Theatre to Pennsylvania’s 30,000-capacity… View this story

    Berlin-based Complete Audio recently provided sound reinforcement for a concert by Sting at the 24,000-seat Waldbühne Berlin in the Olympic Park––the first time they have worked with the artist.

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy.
