The 2012 issue of PSNEurope’s annual special publication for the live music industry can be read in full on our website. For the seventh year running, PSNLive delivers essential insight, commentary and data analysis drawn from the entire spectrum of the live sound and performance industry. PSNLive 2012 incorporates our by-now traditional survey of the live audio sector, encompassing sound engineers and venues as well as manufacturers and PA companies. Without giving everything away, rental companies are feeling better about the industry than last year – despite a plethora of cancelled music festivals this summer. Among other features, the new edition also includes: a report on why big-name festivals have an advantage over the rest; an examination of the impending Live Music Act’s impact on small venues in the UK; an exclusive interview with the CEO of the United Audio/Starlight/Eastway/AVAB-CAC Nordic production giant, Trond Lutdal; and an in-depth look at the rise of boutique festivals. “It might have been a wet and miserable summer so far, but PSNLive is guaranteed to bring a little sunshine to the pro-audio industry,” says editor Dave Robinson. “It paints a positive picture of our industry for 2012 and beyond. And with a dynamic new design to boot, it’s an essential read for sound engineers, manufacturers, rental houses and concert venues.” Read the Digital Edition in full now.
