Capital Sound declared winners at this year’s Festival Supplier Awards, for Best Sound at British Summer Time in Hyde Park.
Project managed by Martin Connolly, Capital Sound now provide systems and crews to 6 performance areas on site to BST Hyde park, London’s biggest outdoor music festival, where over 6 evenings in July, 65,000 people a night converge on the park to experience what is now a production that is delivered to perfection.
The equipment requirements needed across the 6 locations together with crew skills varied incredibly. The main stage system comprised of a 4 hang + 10 field delay+ VIP grandstand package of over 250 loudspeakers . Other locations included the Barclaycard outdoor stage, Summer stage, Sony play station stage, Bacardi bar and the promoters guest bar. As well as the main 6 event days the park offered free open events during the midweek where there were varied activities on the Barclaycard stage and the need to run the audio delays on the main stage to support video screen presentations.
FSA judges commented ‘the job that Capital do for AEG in Hyde Park is very impressive, this company shows all the variables when working with noise limits and how to manage them’
The evening was topped off nicely by a comment paid by another attendee, who had himself attended Stevie Wonder day at BST Hyde Park and praised the quality of the sound.
