ISTANBUL, Turkey – Altincizme recently provided an extensive HARMAN audio system featuring JBL VERTEC® line arrays and a Soundcraft Vi6 front-of-house console for the One Love Festival in Istanbul, Turkey, produced by Pozitif Productions.
The One Love Festival took place at the famous Santralistanbul venue and celebrated its 11th consecutive year with performances by internationally renowned artists including Kaiser Chiefs, Pulp, Damien Rice and Kimbra.
The main PA system at the Festival featured 24 VERTEC VT4889 fullsize line array elements (12 per side), powered by eight Crown VRack complete amplification systems. A Soundcraft Vi6 console was used as the FOH console at the Festival.
“It was the smoothest VERTEC I have ever heard,” said Chris Leckie, FOH Engineer for Kaiser Chiefs, who has also used the Soundcraft Vi6 and Vi1 digital consoles for the band's most recent world tour.
“I'm grateful to be mixing on a Soundcraft board and continue to love my job, which is the most important part. With the help of Soundcraft it only gets better,” Leckie recently noted.
Founded in the late 1950s, Altincizme (owned by Serdar and Serhan Altincizme) is the oldest and most successful systems-for-hire company in Turkey, supported by HARMAN's Turkish distributor, SF Ses ve Isik Sistemleri Ltd.
