An entire PA
by VIO Series
for one of the Arizona's most cheerful and folklore-rich events: the Chandler Ostrich Festival
came to its 31st edition and gathered hundreds and hundreds of people to attend three days of pure music and entertainment.
The main protagonists of the festival were, as every year, the wonderful ostriches, which in their natural habitat, embody the essence of a harsh, barren, yet extremely fascinating territory where the sun rises and sets undisturbed stealing colors and shapes from the Earth and becoming a inseparable with it.
VIO L212 and VIO L210 are the line array systems chosen to power the immense Tumblerweed Park at Chandler, a city close to the extensive desert lands that embrace much of the south-eastern state; Chandler Ostrich Festival means "nature", "animals" and "tradition" but also means great music: this year the line-up included the live performances of the famous rapper Flo Rida, The Commodores and Andy Grammer that attracted a huge, enthusiastic and acclaimed audience.
Three evenings full of music and entertainment in different forms, united by the desire to reunite a community distributed in the wide desert lands which is the depository of a strong spirit of belonging and union.
The public address of the event was optimally distributed by two stages: a main stage and a smaller secondary stage for the shows and the initiatives of the daytime festival.
The main stage consisted of:
16 VIO L212 + 10 S218 + 4 VIO S318 + 4 VIO L210 as front fill + 2 VIO S318 and 2 VIO L210 as side fill
For the realization of the PA dBTechnologies collaborated with Marco Cantalù, Product Specialist, and Mac West Group, which provided its operational support in the figure of Zeke Luna during the entire technical phase of the pre-show; Brio Technologies, the company that purchased the VIO Series system, provided the VIO L212 + VIO S218 system to the service responsible for the event: the installation was in fact made by Inter Technologies Corporation, which ensured the perfect success of these three wonderful evenings and the numerous activities that took place in Tumberweed Park.
During the Chandler Ostrich Festival, no animal was subjected to stress, because for some time now the centenary idea of the creator of this initiative has been revisited in the light of animalist and ecological issues that are increasingly important and central to our times; the spirit and the energy together with the need to celebrate and interact with animals in their natural habitat have remained unchanged, because there’s nothing more romantic than seeing the sun rise and set in the desert through the clear gaze of its creatures.
