BishopSound Makes Glastonbury Debut
UK-based PA manufacturing company and regular Pro Mobile advertiser BishopSound is making its debut at the Glastonbury Festival this weekend. BishopSound speakers are to be used exclusively on a new stage being run by the long-established Glastonbury suppliers, A1 Entertainments from Bristol.
Taking place at Worthy Farm near Shepton Mallet in Somerset this weekend, Glastonbury is the world’s biggest greenfield festival. This year’s event will include headlining sets by Stormzy, The Killers and The Cure, while the unofficial ‘legends’ slot will feature a performance by Kylie.
For the brand-new ‘No Average Groove’ stage, which will be used to host up-and-coming DJs, BishopSound has supplied four Beta BB118 enclosures and four Beta BB215s. The BB118 is a passive sub-woofer particularly popular with DJs for its tight, well-defined bass frequency response. Each speaker will handle 1,000 Watts RMS from 35-100Hz with 107dB sensitivity. The BishopSound Beta BB215 is a twin 15" passive, upright full range speaker fitted with 'Easy Move' wheels. Like the BB118 it will also handle 1,000 Watts RMS, offers 101dB sensitivity and a frequency response from 56Hz-20kHz.
BishopSound founder Andrew Bishop comments: “We're thrilled and delighted to be bringing a uniquely British sound back to Glastonbury this year. It's a great step forward for us as a company and shows the confidence that customers have when they have experienced BishopSound speakers' reliability and sound quality. They know they can trust us with a brand-new stage at one the world's premier live events”.
