The VIO L208
line array system is now official PA for DumBO Space
, a brand new space fully dedicated to art, culture, sustainability, entertainment and all activities and initiatives concerning creativity.
From the recents months, DumBO is rapidly became a synonym of “complete urban regeneration”, in fact the space is born from the will and the commitment of OpenGroup and Eventeria, two important realities in the sector of management for events and happenings.
The entire project consists a requalification-project of the former-railway station in Bologna, a large area lying in the memory of the city until yesterday. Finally the 40,000 square meters and the 6 huge industrial-style buildings are now the perfect setting and "container" for concerts, festivals, meetings, performances and many other initiatives. A completely new identity that has been perfectly adapted to the history of the place preserving its essence and original aesthetics which is maintained and respected with care.
The first party-night was a memorable opening season: on the occasion of roBOt Festival 2019, which is always expected as one of the most prestigious events able to shake and entertain Bologna with "injections" of electronic music and design, DumBo was one of the main scenario of artistic avant-garde hosting the event within the complex of the Former-Central Platform, the most suitable venue to create the magic of a meeting between sounds, lights and energy. There were many stars to enlighten this electronic-techno constellation-night: DJ Rou, The comet is coming, 808 State, Donato Dozzy.
