RCF rental partner Sonoloc equipped the popular Belle Ile On Air Festival in Brittany, France, with an HDL 30-A line array. Situated at Belle Ile en Mer, a paradise island off the Quiberon peninsula, on Brittany’s west coast, it was being staged for the fifth time since 2015, with ten bands playing across two stages. This is the only current music event on the island. It takes place on an open-air site, surrounded by the Vauban fortress, and offers an eclectic program in an exceptional and enchanting setting.
In 2011 it boasted an audience of just 1,500 people but its year-on-year success resulted in almost 9,000 people attending this year. Promoted by Tomm Eo the line-up this year consisted of Emancipator, ASM - A State Of Mind, Deluxe, Super Temple Sound and Rone, representing different genres including Electro-Jazz, Reggae and House.
PA coverage on the main Vauban stage was represented by two RCF hangs of eight HDL 30-A, with eight SUB 9006-AS handling the low frequencies. Meanwhile, the smaller Ramonette stage was equipped with two hangs of 12 HDL 28-A, with six SUB 9006-AS subwoofers. On both stages, infills were provided by four HDL 26-A, while a quantity of TT 25-CXA met floor monitoring requirements, with a pair of EVOX 12 as side-fills.
