Summer in the City - RCF Audio Tools sound out the whole city of Bergheim
The eleventh edition of Bergheim’s city festival “Summer in the City” was once again full of music. In front of six stages, spread all over the city, thousands of music enthusiasts could enjoy the free music performed by bands of all conceivable styles. Following the motto “1 evening - 6 stages” the festival transforms the city into the biggest stage in the area. New this year, the audience could vote for the bands, which can then perform on the audience stage. RCF was present to sound out the complete festival on all stages spreading the whole city. Using the new TTL 4-A system for the first time, even a German premiere was part of the party, taking place all over the city.
As a tradition, Summer in the city’s main attraction and the largest stage was the Center Stage. TSL Production used 16x HDL 30-A modules as main PA, 12x SUB 9006-AS for the lower end, 2x TT 22-A as nearfield monitors, 6x TT 25-SMA and 1x TTS 15-A as sub-monitor. Further stages in the city area were the World Music Stage with 2x TTL 6-A and 2x SUB 8006-AS as well as 4x NX 12-SMA. The New Vibes Stage was equipped with 2x TTL4-A, 4x SUB 9004-AS and 6x NX 12-SMA. On the Your Voice BM Stage 6x HDL 26-A, 4x SUB 9004-AS and 2x TT 22-A were used as monitor wedges. The unplugged stage was equipped with 2x TT 10-A, 2x TTS 15-A and 2x TT 22-A as monitor wedges.
"the RCF systems once again proved their versatility when handling all the stages "
As technical service provider, TSL Production was once again responsible for the event. They take care of “Summer in the City” right from the start with this year’s event being the eleventh edition. Frank Schmitz, CEO of TSL Production, enthuses about the versatility the RCF-systems offer: “With over 75 modules and used all over the city, the RCF systems once again proved their versatility when handling all the stages with different sizes and many different music styles. We could manage the entire event and all six stages only with sound equipment from RCF. This is not only beneficial in terms of logistics but also offers enormous advantages during live operation.”
The date for 2020 has already been set. On June 6, 2020, it is “1 evening - 6 stages” again, and the whole city of Bergheim celebrates the biggest music party of the year.
