Apr Audio Makes its Glastonbury Festival Debut with EV’ X-Line™

July 25th, 2005

Generally accepted to be the most musical stage in the huge Glastonbury line-up, the Jazz World stage this year hosted Roy Ayers, Roots Manuva, The Wailers, Taj Mahal, Femi Kuti, and the Levellers amongst others, attracting crowds of up to 30,000 for the biggest shows.

Under the supervision of Pete Russell, APR Audio provided left and right Electro-Voice X-Line hangs, each featuring 14x Xvls and two Xvlt cabinets, and using 32 matched X-Subs, with eight Xi-1152s for fills. Control was provided by way of Midas Heritage 3000 consoles on stage and at Front-of-House, with Klark-Teknik Helix and DN370 EQs. All power was delivered by EV Precision Series P3000RL amplifiers, managed by the latest v2. IRIS control software, allowing for up to 250 amplifiers to be remotely controlled and supervised.

APR is particularly proud of a king-size monitoring system, supervised by engineer Laurie Brace, which included 16 XW15A wedges, and 9ft tall sidefill stacks comprised of Xb and Xn cabinets with Xds for low-end - all boxes from the X-Array line of concert touring systems. “We took extra care when spec’ing the monitor system,“explains Laurie Brace of APR. “We worked on the principle that we could always take it away if the artist didn’t need it.“ But most people found that they did, and that they loved it - and Laurie was offered a number of tours as a result!
