Adlib returns to T in The Park
23 July 2012
UK An Adlib crew led by Kenny Perrin returned for the sixth consecutive year to provide sound for the King Tut's Wah Wah Hut stage at the 2012 T in The Park Festival, staged at Balado, Kinross-shire
A dynamic line-up veered from dance to rock and pop to hip-hop, appealing to all ages and tastes. It included memorable performances from the likes of Fun, The Wanted, Nero, Skrillex, J-Cole, Miles Kane, Ben Howard and Calvin Harris.
Kenny Perrin was joined by Michael Bernard Flaherty, Sam Proctor & Steve Pattison, and once again, a JBL VerTec system was specified following its "all round" success in the tent in past years.
The main PA hangs comprised nine VT4889 speakers per-side, with four-a-side for the two delay towers, positioned left and right of the FOH mixer to ensure the sound radiated evenly out to cover the back of the enormous tent.
The subs were 16 VerTec 4880As arranged in four blocks of four across the front of stage.
For in-fills and out-fills the system design utilised 16 Coda LA8s, chosen for their compact size and low profile.
All the 4889s were driven from Camco Vortex 6 amps, with Labgruppen PLM 20000s for the subs and in/out fills - all well known and loved combinations.
At front-of-house, Adlib supplied a Soundcraft Vi6 console and one of their standard Lake processing/matrixing racks complete with two LM44s and three LM26s. The FOH domain was looked after by Pattison, with a selection of outboard also available as spec'd by certain engineers, including a TC 2290 tap delay.
All of the main acts brought their own FOH and monitor engineers, a trend that Perrin observes is becoming increasingly common.
Onstage, he looked after the monitors, with a Yamaha PM5D console and 18 Adlib MP3 wedges, all powered by PLM 10000s.
For side-fills four arcs, four SB28s were used and there were Adlib drum subs provided too.
Perrin has worked on T In The Park for the last four years and comments, "We have done this many times and got it down to a fine art where everything runs like clockwork and all involved in the production of King Tut's Wah Wah Hut work together in unison like a big happy family."
