Music Angel Friendz speakers promise to outlast your festival

Music Angel Friendz speakers can play music right through a festival. Just don’t tell the bands, you’ll hurt their feelings…

You can tell festival season is upon us when a press release for a portable speaker describes it as being “perfect for travel, festivals or camping”.

But if the Music Angel Friendz compact stereo loudspeaker lives up to the claimed 120 hours of playback time from a three-hour charge, it could be one of the most useful things you pack in your backpack.

Music Angel Friendz speakers Baard Johannessen

Music Angel Friendz is the brain-child of Baard Johannessen, a Norwegian biologist who came up with the idea while travelling. He wanted to have a miniature speaker that could be used either on its own or as part of a set and for higher volume levels, Music Angel Friendz can be daisy-chained together using the supplied cables.

Soft feet positioned on the underside also allow the user to place the speaker on any surface – even your smartphone or tablet – without causing damage.

Available in-store now from Waitrose and Carphone Warehouse and online from and Amazon, each Music Angel Friendz speaker has a UK RRP of £29.99 each (retailing online at about £25).
