Our Favorite Live Sound Stories Of 2018

At Live Design, it’s a privilege to share the stories of the creative and technical forces that shape our industry. We find inspiration everywhere—from groundbreaking sound reinforcement systems to the immersive soundscapes reshaping experiences from museums to Broadway.

2018 was a big year for Live Design: We celebrated the 30th anniversary of LDI in grand style, with new events, awards, and the biggest show turnout in history.

But the stories that inspired us the most were the ones that show just how far we’ve come, and how a new generation of diverse young live sound professionals is redefining the state of the art. 

Enjoy this look back at the stories we had the most fun covering in 2018.
