Delta supplies Party in the Park
UAE: Delta Sound was called in to supply the audio equipment for the latest festival to hit Dubai, Party in the Park. The DGT Events organised event featured performances from The Ting Tings, Richard Ashcroft and Lily Allen and took place over three stages at the Media City Amphitheatre.
Delta supplied the full PA for the main stage while also proving audio support for the smaller stages. Additionally, the rental house provided full FOH control for the opening artists and RF for the main acts. Full compact audio systems were supplied to the Hype Dance arena, creating a club under the stars atmosphere and the Good Garden Acoustic stage for live bands.
Delta deployed its L-Acoustics K1 system accompanied with KARA cabinets for the main PA. The configuration saw two K1-SB low extension cabinets with 10 K1 cabs as the main left/right PA hangs with three Kara loudspeakers per side used for downfill. For front-fill, 24 SB28 subwoofers and 16 dV-Dosc loudspeakers were implemented. The whole system was powered by L-Acoustics LA-RAK and LA8 amplifiers.
Lily Allen’s performance was supported with a control package that included a DiGiCo SD5 and a DiGiCo SD7 mixing desk, alongside an additional SD5 console used for front-of-house mixing and a a DiGiCo SD8 as the house monitors console.
The monitor packages for all the acts performing on the Main Stage also came from L-Acoustics. Sixteen 115XT HiQs complimented the Kudo sidefill. For Lily Allen’s production, an additional 16 channels of Sennheiser 2050 IEM systems were supplied.
Away from the main stage, the Dance arena was equipped with a compact DiGiCo SD11. Speaker-wise, three L-Acoustics Kudo boxes were used either side with SB218 subwoofers, powered by LA48 amplifiers. Monitoring consisted of six Kara cabinets.
‘It’s been a busy couple of days getting the setup done, but the show has gone very smooth, noted Craig Harvey, senior engineer looking after monitoring systems throughout the festival. ‘The productions that have come through over the weekend have been a real pleasure to work with.’
