40 international Djs on 5 different stages entirely equipped with RCF TT+ Thouring and Theatre systems entertained thousands of people at the MAXIMAL 2010 Italian Electronic Music Festival in Novegro, near Milan.
The new TT+ Large Venues system, composed of TTL55-A line array modules and TTS56-A high power subwoofers, was used for the main stage while the others were provided with TTL33-A line arrays and TTS28-A subs. TT25-SMA coaxial stage monitors were used for the monitoring of the DJ’s consoles.
MAXIMAL 2010 has not just been a music festival but it has been conceived as a sensory journey through electronic music’s different dimensions and the world of digital art.
The concept of the event is to involve young people in a move out of the passive kind of entertainment experienced in most of the clubs. A path through four main environments represented by the different stages: Soul, Matter, Energy and Desire, each identified by a peculiar set design, sound, performances and digital art installations.
In order to realise this concept the choice of the sound amplification systems was a fundamental aspect to consider during the design of the event.
The sound at MAXIMAL 2010 had to be powerful and able to cover a huge area and in very high definition in order to transport the audience to the different worlds created by the Djs on each stage.
Fabio Pecis of Airone, the rental company that handled the event, commented: ”with the new Large Venues system by RCF we were able to obtain a perfect coverage of the vast area. The extreme audio clarity and sound definition that the system delivers even at the very high SPL required by an electronic music festival is astonishing and it has been a real key factor for the success of the show”.
