Sound services provider The Warehouse designed and deployed sound reinforcement systems headed by Adamson loudspeakers for the 27th edition of the Hogmanay festival at Princes Street Garden West in Edinburgh, Scotland in celebration of the new year.

Specifically, systems were deployed by The Warehouse (also located in Edinburgh) at the Waverley Stage headlined by Marc Almond and McEwan Hall’s celebrations with Symphonic Ibiza, Eddi Reader and Ronnie Scott’s Big Band. In addition Adamson partner Live Systems Ltd provided the system for Ceilidh under the Castle.

Across the whole event, 170 Adamson loudspeakers were used, including E15, S10, S7 line arrays, E119, S119 and S118 subwoofers, and new CS7P point source loudspeakers for front fills. All were driven by Lab Gruppen PLM 20K44 and 12K44 amplifiers running Lake Processing.

Also at Hogmanay in the Gardens, Mark Ronson oresented tracks in a full=throttle countdown to the midnight fireworks. Daniel Merriweather joined him for Stop Me and Shallow.

“It’s always such an honor to be involved in the largest New Year celebration in the UK Edinburgh’s Hogmanay,” says Derek Blair, director of the Warehouse. “This year we were presented with a whole new set of exciting challenges. From creating an Adamson system for the Mark Ronson’s explosive Hogmanay in the Gardens culminating with synchronized fireworks to developing a system to enhance the subtle nuances of Ronnie Scott’s Big Band with Liane Carroll in McEwan Hall’s 1000 capacity venue. Adamson performed impeccably across all stages providing consistent and even coverage with exceptional sound quality. “
