L-Acoustics at TomorrowlandFirst staged in the Belgian town of Boom in 2005 for an audience of just 10,000, Tomorrowland now ranks among the largest EDM festivals in Europe. This year, it went global, connecting its main stage in Belgium with eight locations around the world and attracting in excess of 400,000 people.

L-Acoustics has been the choice of PA system for Tomorrowland in Belgium for many years, and was also chosen for several of the new locations, including the Lebanese city of Byblos, where local rental company Loud N Clear provided the audio system.

The Byblos venue measured 120m deep by 50m wide, with VIP and VVIP areas to the left of the venue measuring 60m deep by 20m. To cover this, the main system comprised 32 K2 with 16 K1 SB, plus 32 SB28. For delays 16 K2 were positioned left and right with six Kara for front fill. For the VVIP and VIP nine by nine Kara were used, with four ARCS and four SB18M for the DJ booth. The entire system was driven by 13 LA-Raks.

‘We knew K2 would provide exceptional coverage and a unique clarity for such a demanding venue because of its exceptional SPL, LF and throw capabilities,’ says Loud N Clear General Manager, Roger Bou Farhat. ‘However, as well as the sheer size of the venue, we faced the additional challenge of working on sand, so the size-to-weight ratio of K2 and the simplicity of the L-Acoustics rigging system were also a huge advantage. We are very happy with the results.’
