Curated by American singer and songwriter H.E.R (Having Everything Revealed) – or Gabriella Wilson – the 2019 Lights on Festival offered a multi-artist R&B line-up at the Concord Pavilion in Concord, California. The festival featured performances by H.E.R., Jhené Aiko, Daniel Caesar, Summer Walker, Ari Lennox and Kiana Ledé, and festival partner Live Nation Urban, who helped make the show possible, aims it to become an annual event.

Lights on Festival at the Concord PavilionTo ensure the music and vocals were heard loud and clear, Live Nation Urban employed Sound Image to provide the audio solution for the event. The primary stage was served by Vue Audiotechnik al-12 Acoustic Linearity Line Arrays along with hs-221 ACM Infrasonic Subwoofers. The Concord Pavilion is a good size outdoor amphitheater. The al-12s, being Vue’s largest line array element, was the ideal choice for the festival. Sound Image employed no less than 2 al-12 arrays on each side of the stage. The side fill arrays provided proper coverage for those seated or standing to the far left or right.

The Concord Pavilion does provide some audio challenges by means of a canopy that extends from the stage, out over the main seating area. Sound Image engineers ensured the al-12 line array’s hang angle was optimised to cover the audience without bouncing sound off the canopy ceiling.

‘I think the al-12 is amazing with any genre of music but it really excels with R&B and hip-hop,’ says Sound Image Account Executive, Jeremy Peters. ‘The al-12 has a smooth and warm high-end that is so vital for vocals and instruments in that frequency range. This show didn’t call for over-the-top extreme bass punch, but the hs-221 subs provided a nice tight low-end.’

With a strong attendance and crowd-pleasing performances, a 2020 Lights on Festival may be scheduled soon.
