By PSW Staff • March 12, 2019 Italy's Bright Festival Stazione Leopolda and The Student Hotel in Florence (Italy)recently hosted the first edition of the Bright Festival, a fusion of education and entertainment offering meetings, master classes, workshops and lectures. Varied topics covered music production to virtual reality with collaborations from universities, international companies and start-ups. Evening entertainment at Stazione Leopolda treated guests to electronic music performances. The festival’s general manager, Claudio Caciolli, states: “As far as the technical set-up was concerned, Bright Festival relied totally on rental company Emporio on Stage from Scandicci, who was responsible for the choice of the companies for the stage, lighting, LED wall, lasers and sound system.” The sound system comprised sixteen Outline Mantas 28 line array elements and six Outline DBS 18-2 subwoofers, powered by Powersoft X8 amplifiers. Caciolli continues: “At the Bright Festival, a great contribution was given by the sound system: the audio equipment by well-known Brescia manufacturer Outline was enormously appreciated for the clarity of the sonic definition and its power, which I would define as out of the ordinary.” Outline Vegas 15 CX loudspeakers were deployed as stage monitors. The PA and monitors were fine-tuned and controlled by Catoni. Thanks to the success in terms of attendance figures at Stazione Leopolda and The Student Hotel, with visitors from 28 Italian cities and 35 countries, the outcome of the original event’s debut was very positive outcome. Caciolli concludes: “The quality and care taken with details were definitely the strong points of the Bright Festival, which aroused curiosity, surprised and launched a new Festival concept, based on innovation and the use of new technology.” Outline Tagged with: Bright Festival Concerts Festivals Mantas Outline · all topics Subscribe to Live Sound International Subscribe to Live Sound International magazine.
