The new X212AF line array in dramatic roman amphitheatre

Boris Brejcha at Positiv Festival

Amate Audio’s new X212AF advanced 3-way line array was FOH for Boris Brejcha at the Positiv Festival on 5 September in the Roman Théâtre antique d’Orange in southeastern France.

Sound hire company DIDO Music supplied an all Amate Audio FOH system, comprising left / right stacks of just five X212AF line array elements and a X218WF sub, together with two further X212AF front fills, flooding the 9000 capacity filled Roman amphitheatre with sound for festival.

The festival line up, featuring Nicolas Cuer and Reinier Zonneveld, was headlined by Berlin DJ and producer Boris Brejcha: purveyor of his own genre of ‘hightech minimal’ techno and man in the Viennese carnival mask.

Imagination A/V – for the biggest Dagvlinder sound yet.
