Houghton works with a handful of key technical partners. Our collaborators in sound.
Since its beginnings in 1962 as a small but forward-looking Japanese phono cartridge company, Audio-Technica has been dedicated to enriching people’s lives through sound. Even as the company has grown, becoming a global entity with an expanded line of award-winning products prized by musicians, audio engineers, and music lovers everywhere, Audio-Technica hasn’t lost sight of its original vision nor forgotten the transcendent power of sound.
Houghton is utilising Audio Technica products across all our DJ booths, main stage production as well as collaborating on Houghton’s new social space and record shop, Trevino’s.
The Analogue Foundation is a curator of experiences, helping us all to understand and appreciate the value of analogue now and long into the future. Established by Japanese analogue audio specialist Audio-Technica, Grammy Award Winning producer and studio engineer Russell Elevado, and the international art and genre-bending music group Soundwalk Collective; it aims to unite musicians, DJs and producers to celebrate the essence of analogue sound.
Houghton is collaborating with The Analogue Foundation in the production of the iconic Giant Steps stage, alongside Brilliant Corners.
d&b provides professional audio solutions to accurately transfer passions through high-end quality speech and music reproduction. Since d&b was founded in a garage three decades ago, two founding principles have stood the test of time: a commitment to designing systems, not just loudspeakers, and the tenet of democracy for listeners. That is, a belief that everyone should experience the same high quality of sound, regardless of their position in the audience. The spirit of d&b is fuelled by a fixation with delivering exceptional sound quality to everyone.
Houghton uses d&b sound systems throughout the festival for the best sound quality possible.
