Concert Systems USA Provides Meyer Sound MICA for DeLuna Fest
Sun, sand, surf, and Meyer Sound MICA line array loudspeakers were the cornerstones of the 2010 DeLuna Fest in Pensacola, Fla. More than 30 bands representing rock, indie, country, and everything in between descended on the Panhandle coastline, all to the beat of Meyer Sound's self-powered loudspeakers.
The biggest outdoor concert event ever staged on Pensacola Beach, DeLuna Fest featured an eclectic line-up including Stone Temple Pilots, Daughtry, Willie Nelson, Bush, 311, 30 Seconds to Mars, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the Bravery and many more.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Meyer Sound this year for DeLuna Fest because we know exactly what to expect in terms of sound reinforcement and performance from a world-class loudspeaker manufacturer," said Randy Frierson, president and CEO of Pensacola-based Concert Systems USA, the event's audio provider. "What makes DeLuna Fest special is the beach atmosphere and the unique and powerful sound that Meyer Sound loudspeakers deliver."
A Meyer Sound system powered the main stage which was divided into two bays—the Bud Light and Wind Creek stages. The configuration included three hangs of 18 MICA line array loudspeakers with low end supplied by three hangs of eight 600-HP and 40 groundstacked 700-HP subwoofers. Front and near fills were delivered through eight M'elodie line array loudspeakers. A Galileo loudspeaker management system with three Galileo 616 processors provided signal management and control.
The Go Pensacola stage featured two hangs of six MICA line array loudspeakers augmented with three M'elodie loudspeakers, with front fill supplied by two UPJ-1P VariO loudspeakers. System control was provided by a Galileo loudspeaker management system with a Galileo 408 processor.
Named after Don Tristan de Luna, the Spanish conquistador who is credited with settling Pensacola, the DeLuna Fest is the city's inaugural music festival dedicated to amazing music, the heritage of Pensacola, and preserving and protecting the ecology of Santa Rosa Island.
