This year Funktion-One (Official) are installing an 'experimental sound field' in the Glade which will take the sound to another level. Funktion-One have been pioneering sound sutems for use outdoors and were part of the crew that put on the first Glastonbury Fair. Founder Tony Andrews helped build the first pyramid in 1971 and remembers carrying speakers up the Tor for an after party! In 1979 he persuaded Michael to do the festival again and build a permanent Pyramid stage in which he led the construction team.

They and their loudspeakers were at the forefront of musical evolution and the emerging dance music scene becoming the preferred sound technicians for bands like Underworld and Chemical Brothers. In 1992 Funktion One famously ran the Experimental Soundfield in the field Shangri La is in now. Now in 2016 they are releasing a new system called VERO that they say will take arena sound to a new level. The Ambisonic Soundfield at Glade will be 6 positions of Funktion One loudspeakers arranged in a perfect hexagon 38 metres in diameter. You'll have to hear it to believe it.
