L-ACOUSTICS K1 rocks the Volga

[ATTACH=CONFIG]194695.vB5-legacyid=1861[/ATTACH]Leading Russian PA rental company the Live Sound Agency has deployed its L-ACOUSTICS K1 WST® line source system at Rock on the Volga, a one-day festival in the city of Samara.

Among international artists to appear at the festival were Finnish singer Tarja Turunen, UK rock band Skunk Anansie and Russian artists Aquarium, Kipelov and Peter Mamonov.

The Live Sound Agency’s engineer Vitaly Grinevich deployed two hangs of 16 K1 cabinets with two hangs of eight K1s for outfill, and two hangs of six K1-SB subwoofers per side flown behind the K1s. A further 16 per side SB28 subwoofers were ground stacked beneath the K1 system. There were also six delay towers with six V-DOSC cabinets each.

According to Grinevich, this configuration allowed all 220,000 audience members to enjoy optimum sound right across the festival site.

On stage, monitoring was provided via 18115XT HiQ active stage monitors with two SB28 subs, and three ARCS cabinets per side as infill.

Held on Russia Day (12 June) and now in its third year, Rock on the Volga has become Europe’s biggest one-day festival. Supported by local government, entrance to the festival is free.
