Meyer Sound at Roskilde Festival 2018

12:00 29 September in Product News

The Roskilde Festival 2018 marked the first year of a multi-faceted partnership with Meyer Sound, creating a new paradigm in both large scale festival sound as well as launching pillar programs in education and training, scientific research and development — all with the goal of elevating the festival experience for the audience, technicians and artists alike.

Wrapping up in early July, the 2018 edition of Denmark’s long-running Roskilde Festival attracted a total audience of more than 130,000 for eight days of musical performances from 184 artists including Orange and Arena stage headliners Bruno Mars, Eminem, Gorillaz, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne and Khalid. All stages — from the small and intimate to the massive Orange stage – were powered by Meyer Sound systems.

Roskilde Festival and Meyer Sound led extensive training sessions over the months prior to the festival as part of a technical education initiative. The education program is one of the many initiatives of the partnership that appealed to Meyer Sound in collaborating with the festival that has stayed true to its non-profit roots. Any profits from the festival are distributed to charity every year.
