DGTL 2017

Staged at Amsterdam’s NDSM Docklands recently, the DGTL Festival welcomed around 15,000 partygoers for two days of electronic music. Waiting to entertain them were the likes of Maceo Plex, Jamie Jones, Tom Trago (live), Jennifer Cardini, DJ Koze, and Joy Orbison back-to-back with George Fitzgerald – along with numerous Funktion-One loudspeakers systems.

The event prides itself on balanced programming. While other festivals hinge on large-draw headliners, DGTL combines big names with local and international emerging talents. Such a focus on the musical output demanded sound production to match. The organisers drafted in Think! AV to deliver Funktion-One loudspeaker set-ups for five of DGTL’s six areas.

Area 1 (Modular) was home to a Vero system, featuring left and right hangs of two Vero V60 60° mid-high enclosures, three Vero V90 90° mid-high enclosures and three Vero V315 mid-bass enclosures. These flown linear arrays were teamed with 12 groundstacked Vero V221 double 21-inch bass speakers. Two more Vero V90s and four Evo 7SH skeletal speakers were used as delays and in fill. Onstage, the DJs were treated to a Funktion-One PSM318 monitor set-up.

DGTL 2017‘Following our purchase of the Vero system in April, we were pleased to give it its first outing at such a great event,’ says Think! AV’s Remco van der Werff. ‘Promoters and audiences love how impactful it sounds and it’s very easy to handle from a production point of view. We’re looking forward to many more people experiencing the Vero sound at a number of events we’re doing this summer.’

The main PA in Area 3 (Filter) featured 12 stacked Funktion-One Resolution 5 Touring loudspeakers, and 14 Funktion-One F218 bass enclosures, together with a Resolution 2 SH delay system. The monitor package here comprised Funktion-One PSM12s and BR118 bass reflex speakers. A 12-piece Resolution 5 Touring set-up was also used in Area 4 (Frequency), with four Resolution 4 Touring for delays. Here, eight Vero V221s supplied the low-end response. Four Funktion-One Resolution 2 speakers made sure the VIP area was well covered. Again, One PSM12s and BR118s were used for monitoring.

For Area 5 (AMP by Mosaic), Think! AV opted for a cutting-edge Evo set-up. It featured six Evo 7T full-range loudspeakers, six Evo 7TH mid-high speakers and six Evo 7TL-215 mid-bass speakers. Both the Evo 7TH and the Evo 7TL-215 are brand new additions to the company’s rental stock. A total of 12 Vero V221 double 21in bass enclosures ensured plenty of power in the low frequencies. Four Evo 6EH loudspeakers and two F215 bass enclosures were deployed for infill and a PSM318 DJ monitor set-up was used. Area 5’s VIP area was covered by four Resolution 2s and four F1201 speakers. Area 6 (Gain by Resident Advisor) featured two Funktion-One Dance Stacks together with Resolution 2s and F218s for four-point fill.

‘We want to provide our audience with the best experience a festival can offer,’ says DGTL’s Chris van Meer. ‘By working with Think AV and Funktion-One, we have a trustworthy supplier and top class sound systems.’

‘At Think! AV we believe that the quality of our rental stock and the service we provide to each customer is very important,’ van der Werff says. ‘Being adaptable is very important for answering the needs of all our customers. Adding Evo 7THs and Evo TL-215s means we can be very flexible with our Evo configurations, so more customers can have the latest Funktion-One technology in configurations that are exactly right for their venue or site.’
