What type of Music Festival are YOU?

June 9th, 2013 by LG Blog UK
 
June heralds the festival season, and if you’ve not already got your tickets for field-filling fun you may be wondering what kind of event you should head for. Here we examine a few of the country’s favourite festivals – and the kinds of punters they attract… Glastonbury The most venerable of all festivals – and not just because this year’s headliners include thoroughly dry-behind-the-ears types like The Rolling Stones, Chic, Elvis Costello, Public Enemy and Bobby Womack – is also the one which most divides the country into festival lovers and haters.

5 years ago, few people would have thought it possible that mobile phones would be capable of reproducing full, orchestra-quality sound yet LG technicians had a vision that through advancements in technology they could create ringtones every bit as expansive and rich as hearing a live orchestra, a project they named “Encore.” To realise this dream LG needed a partner. A musician who not only shared their vision, but could bring it to life with music that was as powerful as the technology they hoped to create. Enter Ennio Morricone, whose CV includes such iconic film scores as The Good, The...
