Festival Bar Lecce
Festival Bar in Lecce (Italy) rings in the New Year with D.A.S.
Festival Bar 2015 recently took over the streets of Gallipoli, a town in the province of Lecce in southern Italy, to usher in the New Year with an outdoor concert that relied on D.A.S. Audio systems to ensure flawless sound for the event. Thousand descended upon Gallipoli’s Piazza Tellini to dance the night away and welcome 2015 in style.The Festival Bar 2015 featured a first-class line-up headlined by the famous Italian musician Fabio Marzo, along with a range of performances including Lele D. Stifer (tenor), Vanny Deejay and the spectacular Ragazze Italiane. The event was broadcast live by Radio System, Italy’s top station for live music and entertainment, as well as local digital TV.
The lighting and sound installation deployed for this all-night event was handled by Collepasso-based Audio Service Live, with Paolo Greco at the helm. After studying the plaza’s characteristics and taking into consideration the different styles of the artists, the Audio Service Live technicians recommended the use of D.A.S. Audio’s reliable Aero Series 2 line array systems as the perfect solution for this event.
Specifically, the team rolled out twelve powered D.A.S. Aero 12A line array systems, divided into two linear arrays of six units each and flown on either side of the stage in a typical left-right configuration. These systems were paired with a total of six ground stacked high-performance powered D.A.S. LX-218CA subwoofers to provide the crucial low-frequency punch. The size of the system, including the powerful equipment brought in for the low-frequency boost, provided more uniform coverage and bigger punch for the thousands of fans packed into the plaza.
Paolo Greco and his company Live Audio Service rent equipment for large and small events, and boast over 20 years of experience in the world of live entertainment, putting on a wide range of events including concerts, festivals, plays, and fashion shows. The company manages everything related to event organization as well as the supply and installation of spectacular sound and lighting.
