Lollapalooza festival has been choosing Buenos Aires as one of its bases for several years now, always taking place at the Hipódromo de San Isidro racecourse nd this year it had the participation of many international bands like Eminem, Florence + The Machine, Mumford & Sons and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, among others, plus some local bands like Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas, Babasonicos, Leo García and more. All of them performed for a crowd of almost 200,000 people over both days. For providing the right sound to every corner of the venue, BALS trusted in Powersoft amplifiers once again.

Their technical staff’s ability and knowledge and the enormous quantity of devices they have in stock allow them to work in different projects at the same time, such as it happens during the hectic high season over the first months of each year.

On Stage 1, Powersoft units worked with several AA 2×21” Infra subwoofers and in delay towers equipped with JBL Vertec 4889-1s.
