Lake Festival 2016
D.A.S. Audio is back in Austria for the Lake Festival 2016
The Lake Festival was back again this year in the Austrian city of Graz, with D.A.S. Audio professional sound systems making a return appearance to play an integral role in the success of this massive electronic dance music (EDM) celebration. The largest festival of its kind in Austria, this multi-day, multi-stage event featured a star-studded line-up of some of the world’s best DJs including Steve Aoki, DJ Snake, Chase & Status and Martin Garrix.
Local company Getec Eventtechnik GmbH was called in to handle the sound for the festival’s Moon Stage, and the sound team, led by Jakob Gailhofer, decided to design a sound solution based on D.A.S. Audio’s Aero Series 2, robust systems that could handle the rigorous demands of the three-day event.
Twenty-four of D.A.S. Audio’s powered D.A.S. Aero 40A ALAS™ 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-218A high-performance subwoofers (16 in total) together with six of the ultra-low frequency UX-221A systems.
This impressive set of gear was rounded out with eight D.A.S. AERO 12A as front fill, brought in to provide even sound coverage for the down-in-front fans. Two lateral sets of four additional Event 210A, which were stacked on two Event 218A, handled side fill. These powerful clusters served as “mega monitors”, packing the punch required by the DJs who took their turn at the tables over the course of the festival.
Already Austria’s most popular EDM event, this year’s Lake Festival brought the event even closer to earning a spot among the top tier of European festivals. The exceptional performance of the D.A.S. systems for a second year running once again demonstrated the versatility of the Aero Series 2 line array systems, designed to provide flawless sound for a full range of large-scale events.
