Sziget Festival

With Ed Sheeran’s appearance setting new records for the annual seven-day-long Sziget Festival on Hajógyári Island, north of Budapest, long standing main stage sound reinforcement supplier Capital Sound brought in its Martin Audio MLA loudspeaker array family across Europe in a two-truck arrangement and ‘topping up’ with assistance from local MLA partner, BG Event. BG, in turn, provided its own Martin Audio inventory for two dedicated EDM dance stages.

‘The event gets bigger every year which is why the PA spec has grown. We are consistently asked to upgrade it,’ says Capital Head of Operations & Sales, Paul Timmins.

Wonder Box

With the 2019 opening of the Wonder Box indoor amusement park, the Paradise Fun-City complex has become the largest entertainment site in South Korea. Adjascent Incheon International Airport, the complex has been fitted with more than 200 Amadeus loudspeakers in the media infrastructure designed, built and overseen by C2 Artechnolozy.

C2 was intimately involved in the design phase of Paradise Fun-City Phase 1-2 that includes Chroma, the largest club in East Asia. This encompasses three separate nightclubs, Wonder Box and the boutique hotel Art Paradiso. The complex also features the Art Garden and Paradise Walk areas.

Apollo 11

Marking the 1969 manned moon landing, a new play endeavours to recreate the thrill of the event with a unique, immersive theatrical experience.

Told through the eyes of a retired NASA aerospace engineer as he recounts the story to his teenaged granddaughter, Apollo 11 is staged in ground-breaking, purpose-built venue that plays host to 20 actors, 40,000sq-ft of 360° video projection, a life-sized rocket and a KV2 Audio sound system designed by Broadway and West End theatre sound designer, Bobby Aitken,

Apollo 11 tells the story of the 400,000 men and women BEHIND this historic mission with sound supplied to the US production by Stage Sound Services in Cardiff. With its first run just finished in Pasadena, California, the next shows are scheduled in Houston in December.

L-ISA processor and DiGiCo SD7.

Currently on the road supporting his new Down the Road Wherever album, Mark Knopfler is delivering an epic show presented using L-ISA Hyperreal Sound technology by L-Acoustics.

Having hit venues throughout Europe and headed to North America, Knopfler has once again raised the rock bar with a ten-piece band, and a 7.1 L-ISA configuration provided by SSE Hire, part of the SSE Audio Group. FOH engineer Dave Dixon and Systems Engineer Ulf Oeckel specified L-ISA, with Maxime Menelec – an experienced L-ISA operator – joining during production rehearsals to cover systems engineering, setting up the initial design with creativity and audience impact in mind.

Lady Gaga

Opening not one, but two, multi-year Las Vegas residencies at Park Theater at Park MGM, Lady Gaga is fronting both Enigma and Jazz & Piano using L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology from L-Acoustics.

The first show, Enigma, which has now completed 18 sold-out performances to rave reviews, takes its 5,200 audience members on a full-throttle, futuristic odyssey through two hours of her classic pop, including ‘Poker Face’, ‘Paparazzi’ and ‘Born This Way’. Backed up by a tight five-piece band and a dozen dancers, Gaga rarely takes a breather during the show, using the135ft-wide stage to the full and flying over the audience at several points.
