Levi’s® is proud to partner with the V&A for the exhibition You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966 – 70. Since creating the world’s first blue jean in 1873, Levi's® has always been associated with new ideas, youth culture, individuality and rebellion. This has never been more true than in the iconic era of the late 60’s, when Levi’s® jeans were the uniform of choice amongst rebels and heroes alike – something that is still true today.
Sennheiser is delighted to partner with the V&A on yet another spectacular exhibition, providing the immersive audio experience for You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966 – 70. We are convinced that the innovative sound installations of this exhibition will transport you to the sixties as you experience (or re-live) the spirit and music of that era in a breathtakingly new way. Enjoy.
