The Warehouse and Adamson provide audio solutions for Edinburgh international festival

The audio brand concluded a successful international festival in the heart of Scotland

The Warehouse and Adamson provided advanced audio solutions for the opening and closing events and many shows at the Edinburgh international festival. 

The Warehouse and Adamson became audio partners for the innovative Light on Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside season this year, which celebrated the international impact of Scottish popular music and featured 16 events across two weeks, running throughout the month of August at Leith Theatre.

The festival hosted a variety of artists and genres, including Scottish artists such as Mogwai, King Creosote, Julie Fowlis, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and many more. These were accompanied by international artists including Joan as Police Woman, Michael Rother and James Holden.

The FOH system consisted of 24 Adamson S10 line array loudspeakers together with 8 X E119 sub bass loudspeakers and 2 X P15 loudspeakers powered with Lab Gruppen PLM 20K44 amplifiers running Lake processing. The monitor system comprised of 12 X Adamson M15 wedge monitors powered by Lab Gruppen PLM12K44 amplifiers. Most of the shows were mixed via Yamaha CL5 and Midas Pro 2 front of house desks and AKG, DPA, Sennheiser, Shure and Neumann microphones were used for speech and vocals.

Director of The Warehouse Derek Blair said: “It was a real privilege to partner such as cutting-edge season of shows in such an amazing venue and to work alongside John Robb, Murray Boyd and Tom Zwitserlood from the Edinburgh International Festival. The Adamson system was very well received by front of house engineers, tour managers and artists, we had some very nice comments about how well the system performed while being used by a very diverse range of acts.”
