The Edinburgh Mela offers a multi-cultural extravaganza fitting for the Edinburgh festival season’s close. With sound systems designed by Live Systems – who supplied all of the technical equipment for the Edinburgh Mela 2017 – an Adamson S10 line array loudspeaker system served FOH PA duties.

Adamson S10 line arrayFounded in 1995 to showcase the talents of Edinburgh’s ethnic minorities, Mela has come to represent the widest reaches of the festival, attracting the acts from Southern Asia. For 2017, it evolved into a week-long festival culminating in an outdoor weekend event on Leith Links with a diverse programme of music and dance which incorporated local and international acts, representing a wealth of countries and continents, from India to Africa to China, and the Arab nations.

Live Systems provided the event with sound, lighting, staging, video and power requirements along with a large team of technicians and crew to deliver the project successfully. The main stage used the Prolyte ArcRoof stage with the addition of a catwalk for the fashion elements of the festival. Sound was provided by a new Adamson S10 line array loudspeaker system, comprising four S10 and S119 elements per side, powered by Lab.gruppen PLM20K44 amplifiers running Lake Processing.

The front of house console was an Allen & Heath GLD112, with AR2412 and AR0804 stageboxes. The microphone selection included AKG, Shure and Sennheiser, used with DIs from BSS and Radial.

‘Our investment in Adamson comes after many years of looking at a variety of manufacturer’s offerings,’ says Live Systems MD, Steve Robb. ‘In terms of equipment, we have always tried to bring something different to the rental market rather than simply jumping on the same bandwagon as everyone else. In this way, we aim to set ourselves apart from our competition while at the same time giving our customers access to the best quality products.

‘As such, we were keen to wait until we found the right line array system that would offer a quality that exceeds the other main brands on the market and also offers a strong return on investment, Once we heard Adamson products, in particular the S10 System, we knew this was the right choice for us. The Edinburgh Mela is a magnificent display of diverse music so the sound system had to be right. Adamson proved to be perfect for this popular festival.’
