Northern Germany’s Bremer Freimarkt folk festival attracted many thousands of partygoers this year, continuing its tradition of partying late into the night in Hall 7 of Messe Bremen, after the outdoor area has closed. First-time technology provider Active Blue was responsible for this aspect of the event, including stage construction, design, lighting and sound. – and an audio system that had to be flexible enough to meet all kinds of purposes.

Freimarkt Halle 7The sound delivered using dBTechnologies components, including 20 VIO L212 modules as a main array for the stage, combined with four VIO S118 subs and 20 L208 as side and front fill.

‘With the VIO system, dBTechnologies has really taken an enormous step,’ says Andreas Beer from Active Blue. ‘You immediately notice that audio professionals are at work there. All components match perfectly, and the accessories are very comprehensive and helpful. Rigging and operation of the VIO system are extremely simple, thanks to the stacking solutions, dollies, the NFC interface or the Auroranet control software. We purchased the system just recently and could install and operate it directly on first use without dBTechnologies sales help or extensive training.’

During preparation and conception of Hall 7, Active Blue’s goal was to transform a trade show hall into a chilly club to host in excess of 5,000 visitors each evening. The design and technology used had to convince with daily changing mottos each day, both for partygoers and visitors to the many live acts alike. The range of events spanned live acts to student and Halloween parties.

Freimarkt Halle 7One particular challenge facing Active Blue in preparation for the event was to make the 75m x 50m exhibition hall, which was characterised by difficult acoustics, more compact with light and rigging elements, and to ensure a good sound quality at any position in the hall. The floor that can accommodate around 5,500 visitors hosted not only the stage and dance floor but also many restaurant stations.

Active Blue used two Ingenia IG3T, two S118R Subs and four VIO X15 components to sound the stage and the DJ desk, additionally four VIO X15 were in place as delay speakers. Active Blue equipped the FOH with two Ingenia IG1T modules.

Active Blue has set new standards, for the Freimarkt – Visitors can also look forward to a relaxed party with sound from dBTechnlogies in the coming years.
