The debut edition of the OnePlus Music Festival witnessed large-scale production and spot on sound reinforcement with a dynamic L-Acoustics deployment across the venue.


Curated by OnePlus, the OnePlus Music Festival “merged the wonder of music and the power of technology” to bring an immersive experience at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on 16th November.

A mix of leading international artists like Katy Perry (who performed in India seven years after her debut performance at the 2012 Indian Premier League) and Dua Lipa, and Indian artists Amit Trivedi, Ritviz, The Local Train and AsWeKeepSearching, enthralled music lovers from across India who had descended on the venue to be a part of this “celebration of music and community”.

The debut edition of the event witnessed large-scale production as the stage flaunted a giant Katy Perry mannequin figure, hundreds of moving lights and sound speakers, 4,500 running feet of trussing and awesome pyrotechnics delivering a larger-than-life experience.

Wizcraft India roped in Mumbai based Sound & Light Professionals (SNL Pro) to deploy the entire audio system, trussing roof system with sub-hangs and multiple hoists towards rigging. Wizcraft also entrusted the company to take care of all the pyrotechnics and the special effects that music aficionados witnessed at the OnePlus Music festival.


L’Acoustics 3D sound design and acoustical simulation program – Soundvision, capable of operating in real time, took care of the SPL mapping and complex sound system planning and configuration.

Manish Mavani, Director of SNL Pro, opted to roll out the L-Acoustic K1 and K2 line source as the mains. The P.A. consisted of left-right line arrays made up of 24 K1 Large format WST Line Source and 12 K2 Variable curvature WST line source. For sub-bass, 64 SB28 High-Power Subwoofers were ground-stacked in front of the stage. 16 K1 and 32 K2 cabinets delivered Outfill, while 8 Kara Modular WST line source were positioned to provide front fills. 16 number of X15 active coaxial systems were positioned center stage to provide stage monitoring.

Mammoth 8 line array towers were deployed totaling 40 K1’s, 92 K2’s and 18 Kara’s.

L-Acoustics P1 managed processing and cutting edge loudspeaker amplification was provided by L-Acoustics LA8 and LA12X. The L-Acoustics P1 processor also served as a front-end processor, an audio matrix, and bridge.




11 consoles were deployed for the show, with nine in use and two on standby




“Choosing L-Acoustics was simple as it produces an unparalleled sonic experience for the audience, with easily reconfigurable sound systems. Renowned throughout the industry for pioneering the modern line array, L-Acoustics offers a total system approach that delivers a colossal experience to the listener,” said Manish Mavani.

“Only with a good sound system can everyone enjoy the show,” he adds.

The band and artist preferred requirements also included much of the L-Acoustics that was used.

Commenting on the mixing for the show, Mavani says, “We were using a total of 11 consoles, nine in use while two were on standby. These were 5 DiGiCo SD10 and 1 SD5, 3 Avid S6L and a couple of backups. Only Dua Lipa carried her own desk, rest was all from us.

Crew

“Once Wizcraft formally confirmed us, we were directly connected with all the artists, their engineers and their management to coordinate on the Technicals. Cijith was the audio systems engineer and the main person coordinating with all the international engineers, as well as the domestic engineers. Cijith was working on designs for more than two months using various versions of speaker layouts that was being modified based on seating plans and ticket sales forecasts,” says Manish Mavani.

The SNL Crew for the show included Jagdish, who was in charge of all the stage gear, backline equipment, and RF. Bruce who was looking after the entire Setup / Rigging of the Roof Trussing system, audio towers while Mikhail and Kewal were taking care of all the pyrotechnics, programming and planning with the SFX team.

“Over 25,000 people showed up for this show at the DY Patil stadium. The stadium is massive; it’s got space and it’s got size and India is now getting the A list artists. This is really opening up the market,” enthuses Mavani.
