LEO Family systems kicked off Meyer Sound’s 2016 summer festival season at the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, which was played out over 700,000 square meters in Frankfurt’s Commerzbank Arena.
One of Europe’s premier electronic dance festivals, BigCityBeats, drew 51,000 for three nights of revelry with headliners that included David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren, and Hardwell.
The LEO Family system powering the event was supplied by Emsdetten-based POOLGroup.
Tim Humpe, director of entertainment and touring production for PoolGroup said: “It’s almost like LEO was made for EDM. It’s always powerful and punchy, yet it never gets harsh, even at very high SPLs. We’ve been using LEO for this event for the last three years.”
One notable addition this year was a stage side fill system of six Leopard line array loudspeakers and two 900-LFC low-frequency control elements. The system was specifically requested by headliner Guetta and used by all other artists as well.
At the one-stage BigCityBeats, the main reinforcement system comprised 28-each LEO-M and Lyon loudspeakers and 52 1100-LFC elements in addition to 16 Leopard, 20 Mica, and 24 Mina line array loudspeakers, 16 JM-1P loudspeakers, and 12 UPQ-1P loudspeakers.
