Boomtown Fair, Hampshire (UK), Matterley Estate, near Winchester, Hampshire, SO21 1HW
Special appearance at Boomtown Festival in Hampshire
Dave Randall is the former guitarist of Faithless, Sinead O’Connor, Dido and many others. He will be talking about his new book Sound System: The Political Power of Music. It is a book of raves, riots and revolution. It looks at examples from Beethoven to Beyoncé and poses the question: how can we make music serve the interests of the many, rather than the few?
Dave will give an illustrated talk about the book at Boomtown’s Speaker’s Corner. 13.30 Sunday afternoon.
“A deeply intelligent look at music and society. Thought provoking, readable and clever” Mark Radcliffe (BBC 2 / 6Music)
“A thrilling trip through the dark corners and secret gardens of the music world” Maxi Jazz (Faithless)
