LD Systems deploys K1 for top artists on FPSF’s two largest stages

HOUSTON, Texas – August 2013 — Over the past five years, the Free Press Summer Festival (FPSF), staged at Eleanor Tinsley Park just west of downtown Houston, has quickly grown into one of Texas’ most eagerly anticipated music festivals. This year notably marked the first time that the event completely sold out in advance, ultimately drawing nearly 100,000 concertgoers to enjoy 90 national and local artists performing on six stages over two days.

Houston’s LD Systems once again served as the primary audio, video and lighting provider for FPSF 2013 and supplied production gear and services for the festival’s four primary stages.

LAS VEGAS — L-ACOUSTICS’ KARA/SB18 combination is quickly emerging as the monitoring system of choice among the world’s top EDM superstars, further evidenced by the fact that Audiotek recently specified the package for MGM Grand Hotel & Casino’s two newest venues: WET REPUBLIC Ultra Pool and Hakkasan Las Vegas.

Later that same month, an identical monitoring setup was installed at the AMG-owned 53,000-square-foot, adults-only pool club, WET REPUBLIC. Solotech’s Las Vegas office facilitated the sale of both systems. more

To handle audio production duties for this year’s 46th annual bash, Milwaukee World Festival, the non-profit organization that runs the event, once again turned to local provider Clearwing Productions, which specified the use of more than 340 L-ACOUSTICS loudspeaker enclosures for FOH throughout the grounds. more
