Notte Della Taranta festival

One of the first DVA T12 line array sytems to come off the dBTechnologies production line spent the summer in Italy for the Notte Della Taranta festival tour.

Held during August, the festival attracted 230,000 visitors over a two-and-a-half-week period, touring 16 cities in as many days around the southern Italian Apulia region, and putting the newest dBTechnologies loudspeaker system through its paces. ‘The T12 system was really easy to handle, reports Andrea Salvioli from dBTechnologies’ HQ in Bologna, who oversaw the set-up. ‘Despite the size of some of the shows, we didn’t need that many modules, so the tear down and set up didn’t take too long.

‘The smaller cities had an area of up to 200-sq-m where a staggering 10-15,000 people attended, whereas the larger cities’ squares were packed with up to 35,000 visitors,’ he continues. ‘This also meant the dBTechnologies system had to be powerful enough to handle the larger venues, and yet not overwhelm at the smaller events.

DVA T12s‘The main PA was incredibly flexible, comprising 2x6 DVA T12s in a cluster, at a height of 6.2m, with another T12 at either side of the front of the stage. These were combined with eight DVA S20 subwoofers with a SDD delay option in the centre in a cardioid configuration, which provided a huge sound where necessary. For the main stage we used a complete DVX system – ten D12 cabinets, five D15s and the monitoring for the drummer was made up of a D15 coupled with a DVA S10.’

Now in its 14th year, La Notta Della Taranta is the largest European festival dedicated to traditional music and is a major feature in the region’s cultural calendar, attracting visitors from far and wide. Each of the 16 evenings’ performances involved at least four bands, and the festival culminated in a final concert at the Augustinian convent in Melpignano.

‘We were really proud of how T12 fared at the marathon tour,’ adds Salvioli. ‘The manager of this year’s event was really impressed too. He told me that previous shows had never sounded this good.’
