Riedel Communications supplied an extensive Artist-based communications backbone and provided on-site support for Austria’s Electric Love Festival, one of the largest electronic dance music events in Europe.

Electric Love Festival,Held at the Salzburgring race course since 2013, the event welcomed more than 180,000 visitors and featured nearly 160 artists. Revolution Event, an Austrian-based full-service event management company, partnered with Riedel to ensure a smooth production.

Integrated with a Riedel Artist infrastructure, a Bolero wireless intercom system ensured clear communications before, during, and after event for all mobile staff including sound, camera and lighting crews, and the show management team. Revolution Event deployed nearly 50 Bolero beltpacks to crew members, with only eight Bolero antennae providing full coverage throughout the vast venue. Bolero’s ability to integrate easily and seamlessly with Artist components, including frames, keypanels, and SmartPanels, was a huge asset.

Riedel Artist infrastructure‘At Revolution Event, we knew we could count on Bolero to guarantee optimal communications between all of our teams,’ says Revolution Event Production Manager, Hannes Schnappinger. ‘Riedel’s sophisticated wireless technology and Bolero’s great range gave us unprecedented flexibility and mobility.’

In the days prior to the event, Riedel teams installed more than 1,300m of fibre-optic cable to feed the Bolero signals into the central Artist matrix. All cables converged at the Event Control Centre, the heart of the production, where Revolution Event staff supervised all teams with an RSP-2318 SmartPanel. A 12-camera OB van behind the main stage broadcast the entire event live over social media channels, with an additional 2300-Series SmartPanel onboard the OB unit helping to ensure the highest broadcast standards.

‘Our partners at Revolution Event faced a very challenging infrastructure, with just one single road leading to and from the festival grounds,’ says Riedel Communications General Manager for Austria and CEE, Jürgen Diniz-Mallek. ‘Seamless and reliable communication was essential for properly manage cabling and equipment in this bottleneck – and also to guarantee the safety of festivalgoers. With the reliable Artist and Bolero intercom systems and our experienced engineers by their side, Revolution Event succeeded in making this Electric Love Festival an amazing experience for everyone involved.’
