Stavernfestivalen music festival, based in Stavern, Norway, rocked out with a Pioneer Pro Audio XY-3B system on its Club and VIP stages.
The system was supplied by Oslo-based rental company G Production.
The festival was born in 2001 as a one night, four-band event with an audience of less than 200. Now, Stavernfestivalen is a major three-day gathering, featuring an international line-up and attracting more than 30,000 people.
The 2019 line-up hosted a wide range of music styles, featuring leading international acts such as Swedish House Mafia, Travis Scott, Bastille and G-Eazy.
John Moss of G Production added the system to his company’s inventory after being impressed with its flexibility and power.
“My immediate reaction was that it gave me a good ‘club’ feeling and really spoke to the purpose it was made for. It communicated exactly the vibe that you would want for a Club Stage. When we tested the system on a smaller gig just before Stavernfestivalen, what I loved about it was the fatness – that real thick, nice full club sound. I loved the way the subs give you that bit extra you want for the genre.”
The Club Stage was covered by six XY-3B, four XY-2, eight XY-218HS, two XPRS-12 and two XPRS-115S whilst the smaller VIP stage utilised two XY-3B and two XY-218HS.
