Sponsored by Kingfisher Beer, the 3-day festival was held at the Ezone Club in Bangalore. It is India’s biggest beer and music festival. Inspired by the Oktoberfest in Germany, the TGIOF mixes international standards with Indian flavours to earn a spot on the world festival map. Supported by India’s biggest artists and performers, this year’s line-up included Bollywood sensation Benny Dayal, progressive metal band The Ocean Collective, reggae master Apache Indian, the very soulful Lucky Ali, and Rajasthani ‘josh group’ The Manganiyar Seduction.
DS Pro is run by Dhinakar Dhina, who catapulted his 10-year old company into the big league at the start of 2014 with the purchase of NEXO’s flagship modular line array, the STM Series. “The prime reason for choosing a new high-spec PA was to be the best in the country, and also to capture the international market,” says Dhinakar. “In just a few months, we are attracting attention from prominent promoters and being asked to do larger events – having this state-of-the-art equipment means we will be able to provide the best sound for our clients, at the same time as maximizing the return from our inventory of NEXO.”
Based in the boom town of Bangalore, DS Pro has more than 100 STM cabinets in inventory, as well as NEXO GEO S, RS18 and PS Series cabinets. The company is also making good use of NEXO’s revolutionary 45*N-12 stage monitors.
