Sunset Strip Music Festival

The Challenge:

The Sunset Strip Music Festival has featured musical headliners like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Awolnation and Linkin Park. Since there was no time to do a load-in the day before, the festival needed a custom audio system that could be setup quickly, but also provide top-quality sound.

The Solution:

Working with California-based Sound Image, the team designed and installed a HARMAN audio system that featured JBL’s VTX line array series along with the VerTec VT4887A compact line array series and Crown Audio I-Tech HD series amplifiers.

The Impact:

“After years of using JBL systems for smaller staging applications, I was overjoyed by the sound and performance of the VTX system for the main stage at the Sunset Strip Music Festival. It was not only twice as loud than the previous system we used that fit into the same footprint, it also had a punch that was clear and noticeable even two blocks away. This performance has made me a firm believer in large-scale JBL touring rigs forever.” – Phil Jaurigui, Head of Production, Sunset Music Festival
