L-Acoustics Brings EDM Music Fans Together for Blowout Blockbuster Festival

One Systems Global Production designed and deployed a powerful L-Acoustics K Series system in a massive exhibition hall for 10,000 excited fans.

Ten thousand Electronic Dance Music (EDM) fans got reacquainted with the boundless energy of a live show as Bangkok’s Together Festival returned after a two-edition hiatus to deliver a programme filled with the genre’s A-listers. Headliners like Blasterjaxx, W&W, Will Sparks and AXMO alongside local talents Roxy June, Riviere and Ayrton.

Staged over two days in a massive 3,267 sqm exhibition hall at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), the festival showcased various EDM styles. With a dynamic range of sub-genres from big room house and hardstyle, to euphoric, vocal-led tracks, an equally dynamic PA was needed to support the various musical content.

Festival organisers looked to Bangkok-based L-Acoustics Rental Partner, One Systems Global Production to supply a full-range, powerful PA that would fit the musical styles and fill the exhibition hall with powerful, clear sound. A production partner since the first-ever edition of Together Festival in 2016, the technical and system engineering team at One System had a good grasp of the festival’s programme and they specified a system based on L-Acoustics K Series to achieve the festival’s goals.

Anusorn Peetiwattanaphan, systems and FOH engineer for the event, has worked on renowned EDM festivals such as the S20 Songkran Music Festival, Waterzonic and 808 Festival over the past decade. Knowing that an L-Acoustics system is always a first choice for world-class EDM artists, Anusorn set to work designing his K Series-based system using Soundvision 3D modelling software.

“Soundvision improves my efficiency as it allows me to plot all elements according to the space, no matter the shape and size,” he explained. “On the hardware side of things, installation and cabling are accomplished swiftly with detailed reports for my deployment team.”

Anusorn also needed to manage a vast exhibition hall made of concrete. “My team and I minimised reflections using K Series’ Panflex variable directivity,” he revealed. “With careful planning in Soundvision, I was able to focus sound to the audience, avoiding the reflective walls.”

The main system included 10 x L-Acoustics K1 with 6 x K2 down per side. Front-fill consisted of 6 x stacks of 2 x Kara II boxes each while out-fill was accomplished using 10 x K2 per side. 36 x SB28 subwoofers produced low-end rumble. DJs were served with 6 x L-Acoustics Kara II for monitoring and the entire system was driven by 48 LA8 amplified controllers, running through an L-Acoustics P1 processor.

One Systems Global Production and Anusorn were thrilled with the sound quality. “The system I designed yielded the results I was expecting. The L-Acoustics range of premium hardware allowed for smooth operation with minimal fuss, despite the acoustic challenges,” concluded Anusorn. “It was wonderful to be back to creating exciting sound for festival-goers in Thailand.”
