Smoke and Mirrors picks VUE AL-12 for Chella latin music festival
Full production services for this year’s Chella Music Festival - held at the Riverside County Fairgrounds of Indio, California, and produced by Goldenvoice - were provided by long-standing Goldenvoice collaborator Smoke and Mirrors SVL, Inc., who deployed a VUE AL-12 Acoustic Linearity line array system for the event.
“I’ve been involved with the Coachella festival for nearly twenty years, but this was our first year handling everything at Chella, including lighting, video and audio,” explains Sean Lyons, CEO of Smoke and Mirrors.
For the 5000-capacity venue, Lyons’ design incorporated left and right VUE AL-12 arrays of eight elements on each. Low frequency was delivered by 12 VUE HS-221 dual 21-inch ACM subwoofers positioned at ground level across the front of the stage. Four AL-8 acoustic elements were placed across the top of the subs for front fill.
VUEDrive V Series System Engines provided all power and processing for the AL-12 and AL-8 elements, while onboard VUEDrive electronics powered the subs. Allen & Heath dLive consoles handled both front of house and monitor mixes. Several visiting engineers piloted the VUE array throughout the day, and Lyons reports that the VUE AL-12 will soon be a permanent member of his rental inventory.
