Harman Professional India's Audio and Lighting solutions stimulate the sensory experience at the first ever Justin Bieber concert in India


Top of the line production crew from sound.com and Star Dimension along with the system engineering support from Harman Professional India together delivered the most spectacular sensory experience ever at The Purpose World Tour India edition – a worldwide production by Canadian Singer Justin Bieber.

It was a dream concert not just for all the “Beliebers” but also for everyone involved in the production as the one – of – a – kind concept demanded high production values of international standards, best of the equipment and top of the line crew. Production of this stature possess many challenges on the teams and The Purpose World tour came with its own. Sunil Karanjikar, Application Engineer, Harman Professional India joined hands with Sound.com team and worked on the system design for the show. Commenting on the system design he said, “Working on a project this scale with one of the top Touring artist presents its own set of challenges. The sheer size of the venue calls for a lot of precision as an error of a couple of degrees in the Horizontal and/or Vertical aiming of the arrays can literally put huge amounts of audience out of the coverage areas. The fact that Mumbai is extremely Hot and Humid at that time of the year meant that the Audio crew could only work through the night to execute this project. Although the PA design and positions were marked in CAD, we realized other elements such as scaffold for Screens etc. had changed since original design. We had to quickly re map PA positions to ensure we were still getting the intended coverage”. He further added, “Working through the night made it much easier to execute the set-up efficiently. With 214 VTX and VerTec Loudspeakers and 170 Crown ITech HD Amplifiers used on the project, we had to design a robust and redundant network system to control the System keeping in mind the extreme heat during the day and time of the event. The production quality was top notch with a great display of Lighting and Pyrotechnics. Ken “Pooch” Van Druten is one of the best Mix Engineers on the circuit today and he ensured that the Audio System was used to the maximum with some brilliant Dynamics throughout the concert.”

For the concert, the venue was deployed with a complete Harman PA solution with JBL VTX V25II used for the main powered by Crown amplifier T12000HD, Flown subwoofers VTX S28, ground Subs VTX G28, Front fills – VTX V20, Side fills LR – VT4888, Delay LR and Outer LR – VT4889. For the first time in India there was a side flown subwoofer rig to throw a lot of Bass into the stands and improved the low frequency extension right behind in the ground.

Rig used at the Show:
64 JBL VTX V25-II used as Main PA LR and OUTER LR
24 JBL VTX S28 used for FLOWN SUB LR
36 JBL VTX G28 used for GROUND SUBS
24 JBL VT4889 for DELAY LR and 30 for DELAY LL RR
24 JBL VTX V20 for FRONT FILLS
12 JBL VT4888 for SIDE FILLS
172 Crown iTech12000HD amplifiers
32 MAC Quantum Wash

The dynamic Lighting design for the show conceptualized by Nick Van Nostrand included fixtures from Martin Professional. Having the largest inventory of Martin Professional lighting in India, Star Dimensions – led by Ashish Mehta and Jay Mathuria took the baton of delivering the visual spectacle for the show. While acoustically the venue posed its set of challenges, the soaring temperature took its own toll on the crew and the power eating equipment especially lighting but the never say die spirit of the whole crew delivered a perfect show at the end! Martin Mac aura XB wash played a key role at the main stage, they were subtle yet impactful says Ashish and added “Nick Van Nostrand, the lighting designer had mostly worked with Martin Professional lighting on the purpose tour and was very happy with the fixture options we offered. It was a large set-up and Martin lighting fixtures worked flawlessly even in soaring temperatures.” The Martin Professional inventory used for the show included 136 Mac Aura XB, 40 Mac Quantum Wash, 36 Atomic 3000 LED.

Commenting on the successful show, Prashant Govindan, Sr. Director Harman Professional India said, “It gives me immense pride in saying that we have broken all our previous benchmarks with the successful production of the show and added another feather to our crown. It is the dedication of our esteemed partners such as Sound.com and Star Dimensions, which never let them stop striving to outperform in their respective fields, and Harman Professional India is committed to support them in every execution”.
