Held every year on Hampstead Heath, the Affordable Art Fair brings together over 400 art galleries under one roof for a week in June to exhibit and sell works to the public.


The fair contacted KSS to put forward a solution on how best to implement a high quality audio system for public address and background music across the event’s three temporary structures; the main structure measuring 100mx200m.

After careful consideration, the obvious option of a 100 volt line system was not chosen as we was felt the quality for music playback would not be sufficient. KSS installed x42 EAW small format speaker boxes, each rigged to the A frame beams of the structure using cader clamps; the sound coverage and quality achieved was excellent.

KSS worked closely with the projects different stakeholders on planning and delivery – including Acorn and Neptunus Structures – to ensure the install was carried out precisely over three stages alongside the marquee structure, set and electrical build.
