RIVAGE PM10 Brings A Superior Subfrantic Experience To Lagos

Yamaha Commercial Audio Europe – December 2017

Every year the Nigerian city of Lagos stages The Experience, an annual gospel music concert held at Talewa Bafewa Square. With a estimated attendance of over 500,000, the audio requirements are huge. Every year the organisers try to improve the event, which is why the latest show featured a RIVAGE PM10 digital mixing system.

The Experience is now in its 12th year, with London-based Subfrantic Production Services involved since 2013. Initially the company supplied a team to run the Front of House and monitor sound, but it has subsequently taken on a much bigger role, including broadcast audio, live recordings, lighting and stage design, backline, video screen content, stage management and electrical safety.

In previous years, Subfrantic used Yamaha CL5 and CL3 consoles for the FoH, monitor and broadcast mixes, but this time they flew their RIVAGE PM10 system out to Lagos to handle FoH. [click here to read the full article]
