Global Sound Management Reinforces DISTRICT, India’s First and one of its kind Techno Festival



Rajasthan which is widely known for its artistic and traditional music worldwide, recently experienced, a one of its kind sound and lighting extravaganza par excellence, at the first edition of DISTRICT - India’s first techno music festival, courtesy, Delhi Based Global Sound Management - a rental company with a large in-house inventory of truss & lights provided.

DISTRICT boasted of 40 of the Top Djs of the country including Arjun Vagale, BLOT, Ash Roy, Calm Chor and international stars such as Eric Volta.

This festival took place at an 18th century Heritage property set in a small village on the outskirts of Jaipur. To add to this, the awesome lighting, visuals and mapping on the castle structure created an unforgettable experience. This 72 hours techno event was conceptualised by Vijay Kumar aka Mister.K, one of India’s foremost techno artists. His crew included Sonia Sekri (Co-Founder), Raman Bhandari (Co-Founder), Gaurav Gambhir (Co-Founder), Nalin Sharma (Head of Operations), Joey J (Head of Social Media and Pr).

For the DISTRICT techno festival four different stages were built, all of which were powered by Outline PA systems supplied by the manufacturer’s distributor Global Sound Management.

The main stage which was named - Checkpoint Charlie, featured a PA system which included 16 Outline Mantas 28 vertical line array elements and eight DBS 18-2 sub-bass units. This stage was produced keeping in mind a larger than life techno experience with a matching sound setup by Outline

Considering, that Rajasthan could get a little warm in March during the day, the second stage, located at the pool area where people could chill, with warm, deep techno music playing on the side creating that perfect Caribbean vibe. This stage which was called Aruba, featured an Outline Spectra Bass system and another pair of the manufacturer’s DBS 18-2s subwoofers.

The De-Wallen stage, which was also known also as the after-party zone, offered a more intimate setting with less bass and more melody. Here, Global Sound Management’s founder Gaurav Malvai and his team supplied a pair of Outline Doppia 3-way speakers, complemented once again by two DBS 18-2 sub-bass units. The monitoring setup mirrored that of the Aruba stage with two Outline Vegas 15 CXs systems.

Lastly, was the Diamond Fuji stage which was setup on the roof of the castle featured a total of four Vegas 15 CX cabinets, two for PA, two for monitors with a pair of DBS 18-2 sub-bass units.

The DISTRICT crew has gone back to the drawing board and are working on DISTRICT 2019 and are confident that Gaurav Malvai has some bigger production ideas in store for them!
