Liviau S enjoys VIP status at Pukkelpop 2016
Belgium – Founded in 1985 by youth organisation, the Young Humanists of Leopoldsburg, Pukkelpop started life as a small, local music event before evolving into the huge three-day outdoor festival that it is today. This year, the festival organisers asked Total-e event support specialists to supply audio, lighting and room control for their extensive VIP/Press area. Total-e immediately suggested a Liviau S from Apex.
Held just outside the city of Hasselt in Belgium, the Pukkelpop now attracts some 180,000 festival-goers over the three days. A festival with a distinctly alternative flavour, the event is not just about music – the Baraque Futur space hosts a variety of lectures and discussions all focused around the theme of sustainability – although if it’s music you’re looking for, with ten stages to choose from, visitors won’t be disappointed.
The VIP area for such a major event was a large, attractive space with two bars areas covering some 250 square metres. Four groups of three ETC Source Four Pars and five sets of ten dimmable designer lampshades catered for lighting needs whilst the audio requirement was handled by six d&b Q7 and three d&b D12 loudspeakers. Everything was controlled centrally by Liviau S from behind the bar.
“When the location co-ordinator in charge of the VIP area told me that he was looking for an easy-to-use room control system that could be managed by all of the staff and not just trained technician, I knew immediately that Apex’s Liviau S would be the perfect solution,” explained Kurt Verheyden, project manager at Total-e events. “Once the device is configured, it’s child’s play to operate. Staff were able to control all of the audio and lighting of what was actually quite a complex design with a number of different zones with no trouble at all. It couldn’t have been easier.”
