Asheville, NC (May 28, 2014)—For 2014’s Moogfest, an annual celebration of electronic technology, art, science and music festival based on the vision of analog synth pioneer Bob Moog, tapped Thunder Audio for the festival’s main stage at the US Cellular Center’s 2,431-seat Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.
Thunder Audio provided its new L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system for the five-day event, comprised of nine K2s for left and right arrays, plus eight SB28 subs and three ARCS II outfills per side. Two additional K2 and two K1-SB subs per side were utilized as side fills, while six Kara enclosures were spread out across the stage lip for front-fill. A full 10 LA-Rak touring racks, each loaded with three LA8 amplified controllers, delivered the power and processing.
“We have been working closely with Thunder Audio for over 10 years, so we were extremely excited when they told us they had invested in L-Acoustics’ new K2 system and that we could deploy it at Moogfest this year,” said Sam Fotias, director of operations at Detroit’s Paxahau, which curated the artist roster for Moogfest this year. “Over five days of programming, we had Pet Shop Boys, Kraftwerk, M.I.A. and CHIC with Nile Rodgers all play through that system, so quite a broad spectrum of genres and playing styles.”
