San Diego, CA (June 19, 2014)—Southern California’s Fiesta Hermosa Arts & Crafts festival celebrated its 44th anniversary over Memorial Day Weekend with the help of Bell Event Services, which provided Vue Audiotechnik line array systems for the two performance stages.
Bell Event Services provided the full lighting, sound, staging and backline for the Main Stage and the Charity Beer & Wine Garden. This year Bell’s audio arsenal sported al-4 and al-8 line array systems from Vue Audiotechnik.
The Charity Beer & Wine Garden stage featured dual al-4 arrays consisting of four elements per side stacked atop dual Vue hs-28 powered subwoofers. Power and processing for the al-4 arrays came courtesy of a Vue V4 Systems Engine. A selection of Vue a-Class two-way systems served monitor duty, while an APB Dynasonics Spectra console handled the mix.
At the main stage, the Bell Events team flew dual al-8 arrays of four elements each. Four Vue as-418 quad 18-inch subwoofers filled out the low end, while four Vue V6 Systems Engines handled all power and processing for the arrays and subs. A selection of Vue a-Class systems served as monitors, with Vue h-12 systems as front fill and an Allen & Heath iLive console at the FOH position.
“The Vue line arrays went up in no time at all,” commented Tim Campbell, audio operations manager for Bell Events Services. “Their pattern control is exceptional, and the voicing is spot on right out of the box. And the subs delivered a combination of impact and musicality that was particularly impressive.”
