Outline helps Fuji Rock

JAPAN: The recent Fuji Rock Festival’s ‘The White Stage’ was equipped with an Outline large-format line-source rig, comprised of 24 GTO elements, two GTO-DFs for down-fill and 18 ground-installed DBS 18-2 subwoofers.

Fuji Rock attracts over 100,000 fans each year, and in the past has been headlined by Weezer, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Massive Attack, The Prodigy, Rage Against the Machine and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The 2013 event featured performances from Bjork, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Vampire Weekend, XX, Skrillex and Tame Impala.

Japanese rental company Try Audio, owned by Masaaki Azuma, supplied the sound reinforcement for the festival. ‘Before purchasing Outline’s large-format system, I had the opportunity of testing it personally at several large concerts in Asian stadia with famous bands from both east and west,’ he said. ‘Thanks to the enormous dynamic range, I realised that – as well as rock – the system can easily handle the nuances of any genre, including orchestral music.

‘Its intelligibility is unrivalled at astonishing distances: what I heard at Fuji Rock during the mix confirms the objectivity of Outline’s claims regarding long-throw performance,’ he added. ‘I’m really impressed.’

‘The presence of GTO in Japan is an important strategic “tessera” in our expansion plans,’ commented Giorgio Biffi, Outline CEO. ‘As is already the case in China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia, and elsewhere soon, from now on it will be easier to meet the numerous requests for our products – regularly included on riders – in that part of the world, which has such a dynamic live sound reinforcement sector. Welcome to the Outline family, Try Audio!’
