Summer in the City – RCF Audio Tools sound out the whole city of Bergheim
France - The eleventh edition of Bergheim’s city festival “Summer in the City” was once again full of music. In front of six stages, spread all over the city, thousands of music enthusiasts could enjoy the free music performed by bands of all conceivable styles. Following the motto “1 evening - 6 stages” the festival transforms the city into the biggest stage in the area. New this year, the audience could vote for the bands, which can then perform on the audience stage. RCF was present to sound out the complete festival on all stages spreading the whole city. Using the new TTL 4-A system for the first time, even a German premiere was part of the party, taking place all over the city.
As a tradition, Summer in the city’s main attraction and the largest stage was the Centre Stage. TSL Production used 16 HDL 30-A modules as main PA, 12 SUB 9006-AS for the lower end, two TT 22-A as nearfield monitors, six TT 25 SMA and a TTS 15-A as sub-monitor. Further stages in the city area were the World Music Stage with two TTL 6-A and two SUB 8006-AS as well as four NX12 SMA. The New Vibes Stage was equipped with two TTL4-A, four SUB 9004-AS and six NX12 SMA. On the Your Voice BM Stage six HDL 26-A, four SUB 9004-AS and two TT 22-A were used as monitor wedges. The unplugged stage was equipped with two TT 10-A, two TTS 15-A and two TT 22-A as monitor wedges.
As technical service provider, TSL Production was once again responsible for the event. They take care of “Summer in the City” right from the start with this year’s event being the eleventh edition. Frank Schmitz, CEO of TSL Production, enthuses about the versatility the RCF-systems offer: “With over 75 modules and used all over the city, the RCF systems once again proved their versatility when handling all the stages with different sizes and many different music styles. We could manage the entire event and all six stages only with sound equipment from RCF. This is not only beneficial in terms of logistics but also offers enormous advantages during live operation.”
The date for 2020 has already been set. On 6 June, 2020, it is “1 evening - 6 stages” again, and the whole city of Bergheim celebrates the biggest music party of the year.
