2017 Round Up!

2017 was another brilliant year for us all at ABacoustics.

One of the highlights for us was providing PA systems and sound support for the UEFA Champions League Final festival village, the Womens’ Final match in Cardiff City Stadium, and the Ultimate Champions Match (on the ‘floating pitch’ in Cardiff Bay!).

We also provided our usual sound support at the Principality Stadium for events such as the 6 Nations and Autumn Internationals Rugby tournaments, Welsh Varsity, and Speedway GP.

The Summer festival season saw us taking our sound equipment across the country, starting with the Rat Race Dirty Weekend in May..

This Autumn saw us working on a number of programmes for broadcast on TV and radio, including ‘Can I Gymru’, ‘Dechrau Canu, Dechrau Canmol’, ‘The Hour’, ‘Children in Need’, and ‘Songs of Praise’.
