HARMAN Soundcraft Vi6™ Impresses at the Donaufestival

Donaufestival

KREMS, Austria — The Donaufestival is an Austrian festival of music and performance that takes place each April on the River Danube in Krems, in the state of Lower Austria.

Promoted by the NOE Festival-Ges for the past two decades, the festival showcases a wide range of artistry — from avant-garde rock, performance art and electronica.

This year for the first time the production brought in the Soundworx team of audio engineers, with Klaus Hübner on monitors, and Michael Schmidt given the task of piloting the house mix through a Soundcraft Vi6 — supplied by Redline Enterprise — over two weekends.

The FOH engineer, who had specifically requested the Vi6 after being introduced to the desk at the Prolight+Sound Show in Frankfurt, was gratified that so many visiting artists’ sound engineers also specified the desk on their riders.
