Studio Berar Makes Lasting Impression at The Prodigy’s Warriors Dance Festival With HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays and Soundcraft Vi6™ Digital Consoles

Studio Berar provided JBL VERTEC® powered line arrays and Soundcraft Vi6 digital audio consoles for the Warriors Dance Festival in Belgrade.

BELGRADE, Serbia – Studio Berar recently provided an extensive HARMAN audio system for The Prodigy’s Warriors Dance Festival at the Kalemegdan Fortress in Belgrade, Serbia. Co-promoted by the team behind Exit Festival, the event featured an eclectic and innovative lineup, while the sound reinforcement system included JBL VERTEC® powered line arrays and Soundcraft Vi6 digital audio consoles.

The music at the Warriors Dance Festival favored heavy beats and heavy guitars and joining The Prodigy in Eastern Europe’s party hub were acts such as Skrillex, Caspa, Zane Lowe and Feed Me, while Ritam Nereda, Goblini, Eyesburn, Lollobrigida represented the domestic forces. As the leading hire company in the region, which has built its reputation over almost three decades, Studio Berar was contracted by The Prodigy and the AAA Production team to satisfy an audience of over 20,000 fans who massed at the main Warriors Dance stage and two supporting stages.

Momcilo and Emil Berar project-managed the entire event for Studio Berar, while the audio team was led by system engineers Ivan Paplacko, Zoran Matic and Aleksandar Pejin. The company fielded its front-line JBL VERTEC rig, while each performing band brought its own sound technician to pilot their show mixes on Studio Berar’s Soundcraft Vi6’s at both the FOH and monitor positions.

The main stage was equipped with two 16-element hangs of VERTEC VT4889ADP-DA powered fullsize line array elements, with a pair of 8-element VT4889ADP-DA line arrays providing outfills, four VT4888ADP-DA powered midsize line array elements (for infills), two hangs of four VT4888 (sidefills), and a pair of 10-element VT4888ADP-DA line arrays as delays. In total, Studio Berar also deployed no fewer than 52 VT4880 fullsize arrayable subwoofers. The whole system was processed using dbx DriveRack 4800’s while 12 Crown I-Tech I-T8000 and 24 I-Tech I-T6000 powered the passive elements of the system.

According to Studio Berar’s Marketing Manager Lazar Josanov, the Warriors Dance Festival offered many sound technicians the opportunity to work on Soundcraft’s Vi6 consoles. “A lot of the engineers who worked on the Vi6 for the first time were like children with a new toy!”

Josanov added that the clarity and strength of sound impressed both visitors and performers. “The whole festival sounded great, and all bands who performed, both local and visiting, were more than satisfied with the overall production,” he said.

The Prodigy themselves took the stage at 1:00 A.M. and with the very first rhythms brought the audience into delirium with their unstoppable movement and energy. “The perfectly clear sound shook the fortress area while the fantastic lighting effects were in perfect coordination with each song beat,” Josanov added.
