Festival Of Sound | The Music & Audio Show

Looking Ahead To 2023

Festival of Sound 2020-2022 were all postponed due to the global Coronavirus pandemic and ongoing economic effects. We remain hopeful of a return in 2023.


FOS2018 was a resounding success, with visitor numbers up 25% on the previous year. Since then it has always been our intention was to invite all audio brands, performers, and music-loving visitors to join us in creating an even better event, then Brexit and the Coronavirus pandemic happened.




As you know, the ground-breaking music and audio show Festival of Sound has been postponed since 2019 in the face of ongoing issues impacting the country. We remained ever hopeful of organising a 2022 event, however as we passed the Solstice it became clear that returning to a full-scale large show after four years break would be a leap too far.


The concept of Festival of Sound involves people coming together to experience and enjoy the best in live music and premium audio products. It has been wonderful to see several large music festivals and audio shows successfully returning this year, and we hope to be amongst their number very soon.


The consumer audio industry has repeatedly expressed a desire for something different and a break from the usual hi-fi format. Festival of Sound succeeded in this objective, bringing new people and a younger audience into the world of high-end audio - and we remain true to this guiding principle.


Planning has now shifted to FOS2023. We are actively monitoring the situation, and will make a decision in due course.


We are committed to the format forged by the Festival of Sound as a music and audio show, bringing together the three Ps of Performance, Production and Playback - taking the visitor on a truly wonderful musical journey.


Thank you to everyone who supported our first six years, from the Headroomâ„¢ Show that ran for three years, two instances of the Indulgence Show and of course the Festival of Sound itself.



Festival of Sound will return...
