Arguably the most famous music festival in the world, Glastonbury began life in 1970 and has since become the benchmark for music events. As well as featuring established global artists on its main stages, it hosts the widest possible variety of musicians across its eclectic programme. For many fans, Glastonbury is an annual pilgrimage; THE most important event of the year. Some revel in the great outdoors, enjoying the packed campsites, the sunshine and the mud in equal measure, but for others the chance of a little luxury at the end of a hard days festivalling, is hard to resist. The Pop-Up Hotel, just ten minutes walk from the site, meets the needs of those who favour a little home comfort.
At the recent 2022 renewal of the festival, as well as its range of luxury accommodation, the Pop-Up Hotel also boasted a bar, restaurant and pool area. The famous Soho private member’s club Blacks provided the catering courtesy of brand owner and celebrity chef Luke Thomas. To further enhance the area the Hotel staged a rolling programme of DJ sets and live performances for which Pioneer PRO AUDIO supplied the sound system. This was on the recommendation of dance music magazine and events promoter Mixmag, with whom Pioneer PRO AUDIO enjoy a close relationship, having earlier this year installed a full audio system into Mixmag’s renowned LAB LDN HQ.
For the Glastonbury Pop-Up Hotel, Pioneer PRO AUDIO supplied 2 x XPRS-15 full range active loudspeakers with 2 x XPRS-115S reflex loaded active subwoofers. A pair of XPRS-10 for monitoring completed the system. PIONEER DJ supplied CDJ-3000 and V-10 mixer for the artists.
Marketing Executive at Pioneer PRO AUDIO, Federico Sidero commented:
“Every aspect of the Glastonbury Pop-Up Hotel was of the highest quality, so it was essential that the audio for the DJ sets and performances matched those standards. Naturally we were delighted to see the XPRS system working its magic in such a fantastic setting.”
