L-Acoustics takes centre stage at Roskilde

Danish Rental Network Agents has supplied Roskilde 2011, one of Europe’s largest summer festivals, with L-Acoustics line-source systems.

Nordic Rentals deployed its K1 system for the Orange stage, while Moto Rental, also a Rental Network Agent, supplied a V-DOSC/dV-DOSC system for the Arena stage.

The L-Acoustics system on the Orange stage consisted of 72 K1 cabinets with 24 K1-SB subs, 48 SB28 subs, 26 KUDOs, 28 KARAs and six SB18 subs, all powered by 75 LA8 amplified controllers in LA-RAKs.

“The sound was especially designed for the broad range of artists who visited the Orange Stage,” said Nordic Rentals’ Thomas Christensen. “It was able to create an almost electronic club sound for artists like Deadmau5, as well as classic stadium rock for artists such as Kings of Leon.”

Paul Jensen, from the Stage Section of the Roskilde Festival, added: “It was a pleasure for all of us at the festival – organisers, bands and audience – to listen to the amazing K1 system, which gave the audio quality of the Orange Stage a great leap to the top. We were most satisfied with the system and the professional manner in which the Nordic crew took care of it.”

On the Arena stage, Moto provided two main hangs of 10 V-DOSC cabinets with six dV-SUB subwoofers per side, and an L-C-R subwoofer system of four SB28s left and right, and eight centre, in cardioid mode. Two dV-DOSCs were used for front fill and six for out fill, with four delay systems of four dV-DOSCs each.

Nordic Rentals also used its K1/KUDO system for a string of Prince concerts across Europe.
