Computer company ASUS has been announced as the sponsor for the annual series of Eden Sessions concerts, which take place each summer at the Eden Project in Cornwall.

ASUS is a leading manufacturer of notebook computers, motherboards, tablets and many of the components that drive modern technology. They have worked hard to deliver industry-leading audio capabilities in their devices, making them a good fit for the Eden Sessions.

The line-up this year boasts headliners Ellie Goulding and Dizzee Rascal with more dates to be announced soon. Now in their thirteenth season, this year’s shows follow an acclaimed series of gigs in 2013 headlined by Jessie J, Sigur Ros, The xx, Kaiser Chiefs and Eddie Izzard.

Last year also saw the launch of Eden Sessions TV, a dedicated free-to-view online channel featuring regularly-updated videos of some of the gigs’ finest shows, including recently-uploaded footage from Muse’s legendary 2006 show (http://youtu.be/X0_yJ9VXu6U).

The channel also live-streamed the second night of Jessie J’s sold-out double-header and has already had more than a million views since its launch.

John Swatton, Marketing Manager of ASUS, said: “We are extremely excited to be sponsoring the Eden Sessions, with its tradition of hosting world class artists in one of the most beautiful concert venues in the world.

“For the past four years, ASUS’ Golden Ear Team has been working tirelessly to deliver unrivalled audio experiences on all of our devices, whether listening to music, watching movies or enjoying games.

“We look forward to demonstrating premium sound quality on our range of laptops, tablets and smartphones to the Sessions audience.”

Rita Broe, Eden’s marketing director, said: “We're very pleased to be working with such a great partner in ASUS, especially as they are so passionate about delivering premium sound quality in their products. This is a landmark moment for the Eden Sessions, our first sponsor and confirmation that our shows are getting international recognition.”
