NEXO’s Spanish distributor Sound Means turns festival sponsor this summer, providing full technical services covering sound, light and technical staff for a select number of key events in and around the Barcelona-based company’s home city.
“We’re working in collaboration with our key rental company clients to provide the perfect opportunity for them to gain experience and training on the latest NEXO systems, while delivering world class sound at some very exciting concerts and festivals” explains Sound Means Technical Sales Manager Jordi Vaquero Pujagut.
Starting with the popular Strenes Festival, the first concert at the iconic Palau de la Música Catalana sold out 3 months ahead of time, and featured the Catalan band Blaumut performing with the Young Catalan Symphonic Orchestra.
Girona-based events services specialists BTM Sound deployed an all-NEXO system comprising a central hanging cluster of 8 x GEO M12 line array elements with left and right stacks of 4 x GEO M12 on an MSUB18. Compact NEXO ID24s were used as front fills and P+ for stage monitors.
“The historic Palau is quite restrictive in terms of the weight we can hang, so we chose to ground stack the left and right speakers” reports BTM’s Robert Reig Collell. “By supplementing the system with a central cluster, we were able to achieve excellent coverage in the venue at relatively low volume levels.”
Broadcast live on TV, the concert was a great success, with the band particularly impressed by the sound. “The concert at the Palau went so well, we’re now doing the whole tour with NEXO” says Robert.
