Mexico City is one of the most vibrant cities in the world, boasting a thriving electronic music community among its 9 million inhabitants. Here, people take their music seriously and we can think of no better city to host one of the biggest electronic music festivals in Mexico: EDC Mexico. Last year, over 125,000 people passed through the gates at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodríguez to experience the enchanted world of EDC, and this year they are expected to surpass that.
Following up on successful audio deployments in 2016 at EDC Mexico, Canadian loudspeaker manufacturer PK Sound will be powering the main stage, Kinetic Field with Trinity for upwards of 80,000 audience members. PK’s Trinity is the world’s first robotic line array and is capable of sculpting the sound field in 3 dimensions, remotely.
Jeremy Bridge, PK Sound President and CEO says “This year we are very excited to be providing EDC Mexico with the largest Trinity system ever deployed. The experience will be amazing. The quality of the artists and music will be at its highest, and we owe it to the fans to provide nothing but the best sound.”
The sound system at the Kinetic Field stage will consist of a total of 80 Trinity modules: 14 per side as the main line array, with an additional 12 modules per side set up as outfills to cover the wide audience area. 8 VX12 line arrays will be set up as front fill. To cover the long distance from the stage, 3 individual hangs of 10 Trinity modules will be set up as mid-field delays and 3 sets of 14 VX10 compact line array modules will provide sound coverage at the back. For the low-end, an arsenal 142 dual 18” CX800 subwoofers will be set up in a wall formation if front of the stage. The Trinity sound system being implemented will dramatically overshadow what PK Sound had brought in last year for the Circuit Grounds and Neon Garden stages.
EDC Mexico will feature headliners including: Alesso, Hardwell, Major Lazer, The Chainsmokers, Zomboy, Marshmello and many more. With such a powerful PK Sound system on hand to provide that critical connection between the artist and fans through intelligible sound, the stage has been set for a massively impactful EDC Mexico 2017.
