VT20 on the biggest festival of electronic music in Northern Germany

Throughout one weekend the airfield of Neustadt-Glewe was the Mecca for fans of electronic music and the meeting place for the world’s DJ elite. 40,000 visitors from 40 nations were celebrating together with the world’s top DJs Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, W&W and another 110 acts.

Music Eggert as the organizer charged André Neuhaus with setting up the sound systems on all four stages – the two of them have been working together successfully for several years – and decided to go for the VT20 Grand Venue setup on the “Terminal Floor“.

The flown arrays were realised using 2 x 9 VT20s with 2 x 6 VS18F curved subwoofers in cardioid mode. In the infra range the arrays were supported by a cardioid bass array of 36 VS18 subwoofers.

The entire main PA was driven by six 20.4-DSP system amplifiers which in total required only one 1 x 400 V / 32 A power connection. The nearfield was covered by four MT12 multi-purpose loudspeakers. The PA for the VIP area was designed with 2 x 3 VT20s.


„Once again the quality of the integral package of ProAT loudspeakers and Hoellstern system amplifiers convinced. Despite the difficult on-site conditions (tent situation and decoration/plants in the sound path), expectations and results were congruent. Regarding the amount of material spent and low power consumption, no PA system can be realised more effectively at the moment. At least I don’t know of any other option which offers the same functionality and quality.“
