Krasnodar, Russia (August 21, 2014)—The Stairway to Heaven Festival debuted this year in Krasnodar, Russia, with sound reinforcement company Live Master providing an Adamson Engergia system for the stage.
Adamson’s Jochen Sommer assisted with system design and was on site to oversee the set-up and tuning of the Energia system. The festival line-up included a variety of popular performers, including Joe Lynn Turner, Ian Paice, Ken Hensley, Pink Floyd Show UK and Russian heavy metal band Aria.
The 35-meter stage was flanked by left-right Energia line arrays, followed by large-scale video walls that delivered visual impact throughout each performance.
The main PA consisted of two Adamson E15 line arrays, each comprised of 12 E15 enclosures. Due to the large width of the PA, an additional flown infill system of four E12 per side was installed with an additional four Adamson E12 stacked in front of the stage for lip-fill purposes. Low end was supported by six blocks of three Adamson T21 subwoofers arranged in an end-fired configuration left and right of the stage at ground level.
The system was driven by 22 Lab.gruppen PLM 20000Q amplifiers with Lake processing. A Midas Pro6 digital console took centerstage at FOH, along with one Lake LM44 for main system control. On stage monitoring was delivered by 16 Adamson M15 monitors along with a pair of A218 subs for the drums.
