Edison, NJ (August 21. 2014)—The annual Festival Cubano, held in Chicago from August 15 to 17, tapped the services of Chicago’s Pink Noise to provide the sound reinforcement. This year’s lineup for Festival Cubano included Frankie Ruiz, Eddie Santiago, Falardo Jr., El Gran Combo and the African-Cuban funk band Palo. The concerts drew crowds of over 25,000.
For the event, Pink Noise provided sound reinforcement equipment from loudspeaker manufacturer dB Technologies, fielding a system that was comprised of 12 DVA-T12 and 4 DVA-T8 active three-way line array cabinets, flown eight per side; plus 8 DVA-S30 dual 18-inch subwoofers. RCF NX-L24A active column cabinets coupled with DVA-S20DP active double 18-inch subwoofers were also used for sidefills, and 10 dB Technologies DVX-DM15 15-inch two-way stage monitors will be utilized on the stage.
“We use the DVA system at events all over the country,” said Pink Noise owner Oscar Villegas. “The ease of set up and operation, the capability of monitoring the system functions, and the output is tremendous.”
During the three-day event, besides music from Cuba and Latin America, the public enjoyed a variety of food, arts & crafts booths, carnival games and a Kids’ Zone, along with other features.
