VUE Drops the Beat at Italian Music Festival in Palermo

Sinergie Group deploys al-class scalable line array system for 3-day Beat Full Music Festival

March 13th, 2018 — Escondido, Ca.

Held from August 31 – September 2, 2017, in the Sicilian capital of Palermo, the fifth annual Beat Full Festival boasted a range of performances from hip-hop to electro-rock. Set on a one-and-a-half acre section next to the UNESCO World Heritage Zisa Cultural Site, the Festival featured a headline performance from the most-discussed Italian artist of 2017 — Gold and Platinum recording artist and master of the Italian rap/hip-hop scene, Ghali.

Under the masterful guidance of lead live sound engineer, Rosario “Saro” Tine, Sinergie Group provided system design and rental services for the Festival. This was Singergie’s second consecutive year providing audio services to the Festival and the 7th major deployment of their VUE arsenal during a very active 2017 Italian summer festival season.

Citing its Beryllium-packed punch and immense flexibility across a wide array of musical genres, Tine designed a system anchored around the VUE al-12 compact line array. “We saw alternating on stage during the three days a wide range of different artists and styles,” explained Tine. “In the first day alone, acts ranged from electro-rock and reggamuffin, to classic rock and drum and bass. Thanks to the flexibility and sonic character of VUE’s Continuous Source Topology, the system delivered flawlessly with each and every act. I can’t think of another system that could have handled such a wide array of material and done it so well.”

The Beat Full main stage boasted 8x al-12 compact line arrays flown per side, with 8x as-418 in the middle in an end-fire configuration, with hs-221 dual 21-inch subwoofers at both ends of the subwoofer array. al-8 stage-mounted line array elements provided front fill.

According to Sinergie’s VUE Italia Marketing Manager, Livio Spallino, the combination of VUE’s versatility, and its now well-established reputation for world-class sonic performances has created quite a groundswell of demand in the Italian market. “The Beat Full Festival finished out a record-setting summer for Sinergie Group with seven completed all-VUE festivals,” said Spallino. “VUE’s versatility has given Sinergie the ability to take on a wide array of business regardless of how challenging the setup or venue. And VUE’s sound quality has enabled us to establish the lead position in the Italian festival market.”

“Thanks to the flexibility and sonic character of VUE’s Continuous Source Topology, the system delivered flawlessly with each and every act. I can’t think of another system that could have handled such a wide array of material and done it so well.”
