Story Event Engineering recently deployed multiple Harman Professional Solutions audio systems at Emporium Festival, including JBL VTX A12 tour sound solutions.
Founded in 2005 by Dutch promoter Matrixx Events, Emporium Festival is an annual dance music festival held near the city of Wijchen in Berendonck Park. This year, 30,000 dance music fans came together to enjoy a robust lineup of DJs and performers across nine stages.
Story Event Engineering equipped the entire festival with end-to-end Harman live sound reinforcement systems, including JBL VTX Series line arrays, Crown I-Tech HD Series amplifiers and Soundcraft Vi Series consoles.
“We’ve been providing sound for Emporium Festival for over 10 years, and every year our company grows along with it,” said Paul Lehmann, sales representative & system engineer, Story Event Engineering. “This year alone we used more than 400 JBL speakers and 200 Crown amps. Nine independent systems at a festival of this size can be a lot to keep up with, so it’s important to have reliability and consistency among all the gear. From JBL VTX A12 main rigs and VRX DJ monitors to Crown amps and Soundcraft mixers, we used Harman Professional live sound solutions across the board.”
