MLA COVERS COSMIC MEADOW AT EDC LAS VEGAS
3G Productions chose Martin Audio MLA for the star-studded Cosmic Meadow Stage during the three-day celebration of lights, colors, dance, costumes and music at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.
With leading DJs such as Zedd, Martin Solveig, Paul Van Dyk, Knife Party, Swanky Tunes, Chris Lake, Flux Pavilion and more, Cosmic Meadow demanded a world-class sound system that could cover the crowd consistently with full frequency audio at the highest decibel levels.
The MLA setup from 3G consisted of 18 MLA cabinets a side for the main hang, 12 MLA per side for the off hangs and 32 MLX subs ground-stacked in front of the stage.
Six Martin Audio DD12's stacked on top of the subs were used for front fill and four MLA Compact per side were ground-stacked on stage between the main and side hangs to fill in the area between the two. Two delay towers behind FOH had two hangs of eight MLA Compact to complete crowd coverage.
Asked about how MLA performed during the event, 3G FOH Engineer/System Tech Mike Smeaton said, 'Even with the extreme heat and low humidity, the system had no problems generating high SPL with full frequency reproduction for over 11 hours each day with consistent coverage. You can always count on MLA.
'The crowds loved it and we had several guest FOH engineers over the three days who were complimentary about the system. Several commented that the subs were very musical.'
