For the second consecutive year, the Ultra Music Festival followed its triumphant event in Miami by bringing its electronic dance party to Split, Croatia over three days.
Known as Ultra Europe, the DJ festival moved into the city’s Poljud Stadium, where more than 40,000 in attendance heard some of the world’s leading turntablists reinforced through RCF TT+ line array loudspeakers.
Headliners, including Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Carl Cox, David Guetta, Paul Kalkbrenner and many more, performed on Main Stage where sound reinforcement was again provided by a TTL55-A high power, three way, active line array system; this was specified by Zagreb-based event production company, Promo Logistika.
The stage PA was rigged with two hangs of 20 TTL55-A elements (left and right), with a straight cardioid array of 42 TTS56-A double 21-inch subwoofers, electronically curved via the algorithm in RCF’s proprietary RDNet to achieve a wide and smooth sub-frequency coverage.
Sidefills were comprised of an array of six TTL55-A (left) and 10 x TTL55-A (right) while two delay towers (left and right, and situated 70 metres back from the stage) were covered by hangs of eight TTL55-A. A further eight RCF HDL20-A elements were used as front fills.
RCF provided full support (and system engineering), with TT+ product specialist Luca Cilloni designing and optimizing a rig designed for maximum coverage across the site. The local rental company supplied all the structures, speakers, logistics and accessories required.
According to Promo Logistika marketing director, Zoran Biškupić, the event was a huge success and the system performed at its best.
