Some 4,000 visitors recently flocked to one of the biggest concert spectaculars ever in Slovenia.
The Temma-X Festival witnessed performances by top Slovenian bands (including Katalena, Siddhartha, Elvis Jackson and Lojze Slak) to celebrate 15 years of the band Big Foot Mama.
Thirteen Slovenian performers appeared on stage with two songs - an interpretation of one BFM's song and one of their own - pumping out through the Martin Audio PA. Comperes Slon and Sadez entertained visitors throughout the performances, and also delivered all the songs of Big Foot Mama in a three-minute-long collage.
An hour of high-octane rock and nostalgia followed, and after two encores, the fans' persistence was rewarded with the legendary song Nisem Vecs Tabo.
All performing bands received generous applause, but most fascinating and surprising was Lojze Slak, who used special scene-setting, stage pyros, theatre with acrobats, collage projections of Big Foot Mama's video clips and artistic and abstract movies.
All the equipment was supplied by Bostjan Konic of KSL, Martin Audio's Slovenian distributor. For the FOH they used W8LC line arrays and WSX subs. To cover the first row KSL used four WSX and four W8LC in a ground stack, while stage monitoring consisted of the entire LE series (LE700, LE400c and LE12JB). Some F12 speakers were used for for sidefills onstage, to help the comperes, while a drum fill was also provided in the shape of an S218 sub and two F15's.
Powering the speakers was a combination of Martin Audio and Crest amplifiers, with XTA DP226 and DP224 system management crossovers.
This festival was just the beginning of major celebrations for one of
the most successful Slovenian rock bands, which went on right through to the new year.
