Prosound provided the technical services to the Bushfire Festival hosted in Swaziland on the week-end of the 28th of May. The festival was a great success and attracted approximately 15 000 people, with an eclectic mix of artists from SA electronic act Goldfish to Zimbabwean musician Oliver Mtukudzi.
The festival featured an open-air main stage, and adjacent to this a smaller inside amphitheater. Both venues ran concurrently with bands, industrial theatre, poets and DJ’s performing, from 10AM to 4AM every day.
For the main a Meyer Sound Milo line array system was used with Meyer Sound Galileo for processing – arrays were flown using the Prolyte S36V towers. On front of house a Midas Legend 3000 analogue mixing console was used - making it easier for the changes made to the line-up during the show. TC Electronic and Klark Teknik was used for processing - and on stage a host of Electro-Voice microphones were used. For on-stage monitoring the RCF Art-series active speakers were used with great success – and for all the DJ’s Rane Professional DJ mixers were provided.
For the amphitheatre an Electro-Voice TourX loudspeaker systems was used, also with Klark Teknik and TC Electronic processing and Electro-Voice mics on stage. Prosound’s Barco daylight screen was also used as part of the main stage for branding, as well as visual effects provided by some of the DJ’s.
Prosound’s hire department did a sterling job under the watchfull eyes of Donovan Calvert. And comments from Jiggs Thorne – Director of the Bushfire Festival: “Firstly, we are extremely grateful for the amazing production put on by Prosound. Please send a big thank out to the amazing team!”
