World Youth Days

Held in the former Polish capital city of Kraków, World Youth Days attracted 2.5m pilgrims from around the globe to a 1,200-acre site at Brzegi’s Campus Misericordiae. Clarity and intelligibly were essential consideration for the sound company serving the event – Poznan-based Gigant Sound Letus.

Under the guidance of company owner Jerzy Taborowski, the Gigant team constructed 66 delay towers (with equipment on two towers and altar doubled, to create 70 towers), spread over huge distances, all of which comprised Outline premium GTO, C-12 and Mantas line arrays powered by Powersoft K Series and X Series amplifiers.

Rockin’1000 – That’s Live

In May 2015, a small band of Foo Fighters fans from Cesena had tired of waiting for their heroes to add the central Italian state of Romagna to their tour itinerary – they hadn’t vitied since 1997, and had no plans to return.

Led by Fabio Zaffagnini, the friends decided to stage a live performance of the Foo Fighters’ ‘Learn To Fly’ with 1,000 musicians playing simultaneously – and to film the performance, and send the video to the band. ‘If you really want something, you have to be ready to beg,’ Zaffagnini  says. ‘It’s better if there are 1,000 people behind you.’
