Lake Festival 2015
D.A.S. Audio keeps the beat at Austria's Lake Festival 2015
Electronic music’s massive and continued rise in popularity has quickly turned Austria’s Lake Festival into not only the most highly-attended EDM (Electronic Dance Music) event in the country but one of the genre’s largest festivals in all of Europe. D.A.S. Audio professional sound systems played an integral role in the success of this four-day, five-stage celebration, ensuring flawless sound for a star-studded line-up of some of the world’s best DJs which included David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Robin Schulz and Calvin Harris.
Sound company Getec Eventtechnik GmbH, with Jakob Gailhofer at the helm, called in to handle the sound for the festival’s main Moon Stage, decided to draw on D.A.S. Audio’s extensive product catalog to design a sound system that could handle the rigorous demands of the four-day event.
D.A.S. Audio’s distributor K24 Technik, with Johannes Stummer at the helm, was on hand to collaborate, as well as D.A.S. Systems Engineer Joel Damiano, who made the trip to Austria to help with system set up and adjustment.
Twenty-four of D.A.S. Audio’s large-format Aero 50 line array systems, rigged in two linear hangs of 12 systems per side in a classic left-right configuration, were deployed on the Moon Stage. These powerful systems were matched by a small army of D.A.S. LX-218CA high-performance subwoofers (24 in total) together with six of the ultra-low frequency UX-221A systems. Distributed in a physical arc configuration, the combined response of these systems guaranteed optimal sound coverage for the audience.
This impressive set of gear was rounded out with twelve D.A.S. Event 210A as front fill, brought in to provide even sound coverage for the down-in-front fans. Two lateral sets of three additional Aero 12A, which were stacked on Event 218A on stage, handled side fill. These powerful clusters served as “super monitors”, packing the punch required by the DJs who took their turn at the tables over the course of the festival.
Celebrated in the Austrian city of Graz, this year’s Lake Festival brought the event yet another step closer to becoming the biggest electronic music celebration in Europe.
The exceptional performance of the D.A.S. systems once again demonstrated the versatility of the Aero Series 2 line array systems, designed to provide flawless sound for today’s entire range of live music events.
