Qobuz to Sponsor Two New Audio Shows:
Pacific Audio Fest, Audio Advice Live

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Qobuz, the music lover’s go-to Hi-Res music streaming and download platform, will be the official sponsor of two of the summer’s biggest audio events: Pacific Audio Fest (7/29-7/31 in Seattle) and Audio Advice Live (8/19-8/21 in Raleigh). Both shows are brand-new, and will be the first audio shows ever in their respective regions.

At both shows, Qobuz will be featured in many of the best rooms and VP of Business Development and Chief Hi-Res Music Evangelist David Solomon will be working the floors, speaking, and performing multiple flash DJ sessions a day.

Since the pandemic, Qobuz has released its first US exclusives (with artists the likes of Christian McBride), become the first service to stream in Hi-Res on Sonos devices, appointed its first Artist-Approved Sound Ambassador (The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne), put on one of the hottest events at SXSW, and much more, and Solomon will be on site to discuss it all with the visitors, high-end audio executives, and hardware/headphone manufacturers attending the show.
