Sound Systems


Martin Audio maximises consistent sound levels and coverage onsite while containing offsite noise levels to unite festival goers and the neighbourhood.

Headliners at Hyde Park are now performing at levels well in excess of 100db which was unthinkable before

Revered Festival Sound

For over fifty years, Martin Audio has earned a reputation for supplying superb sound systems across the spectrum of sound reinforcement, including outdoor concerts and festivals.

In collaboration with our global network of rental partners, Martin Audio has taken pride of place on some of the world’s biggest and most prestigious festivals, such as Glastonbury, Rock in Rio, and BST Hyde Park.

With our fastidious focus upon full frequency sound, control, coverage and consistency, festival production teams rely upon Martin Audio to deliver the best controlled sound across their sites.

I have to say the system delivered a really exciting muscular sound with absolute clarity for the daily crowds that were in excess of 100,000. There’s nothing that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck as much as seeing an audience rocking as far as the eye can see.

Peter Racy, Gabisom Chief Engineer, Rock in Rio.

Unite Your Audience

Our philosophy of “Unite Your Audience” isn’t just a motto, it’s the guiding principle behind everything we do. Our systems bring our signature sound of clarity and impact with the coverage and consistency that truly connects the fans with the artist’s performance ensuring across the festival site, everyone hears the best sound.

Big Sound Without The Noise Pollution


The technology behind Martin Audio MLA and Wavefront Precision allows us to deliver a full range intimate experience at 350m from the pyramid stage and yet within 50m of the edge of the arena, we can reduce the levels up to 15dB and even lower beyond. The accuracy of this system is unmatched; it’s like stepping through an invisible door as the sound rapidly fades around you.

Simon Honywill, Audio Consultant for Glastonbury.

All members of its management are approachable, down to earth, and they are service led, driven by its people and understanding that it’s about shared relationships and collaboration with customers.

Paul Timmins, Director, 22live

We had to control sound escape outside the venue to an unprecedented level, but with Martin Audio’s DISPLAY optimisation software the results were easy to obtain. Inside the audience field the audio experience was completely different to outside the perimeter. It was amazing how much sound pressure and quality was provided to avoid it leaking out.
