Heliart supplies Viljandi festival

Song and dance in Estonia

23 August 2012

Estonia - Heliart has had a busy summer in their native country, with a whole host of events, festivals and concerts making the most their rental stock and expertise.

A good example of is the song and dance festival Viljandimaa laulu- ja tantsupidu in Viljandi, Estonia, with over 1500 singers, 500 dancers and more than 100 brass band members. The first festival was held in 1882, with this year being a look through of the last 130 years, allowing folk dancers and singers of Viljandi county to gather for celebration, each group wearing their own national clothes to present their identity and region.

"Heliart OÜ was founded in 2007," said Priit Kivimägi, owner and partner at Heliart. "We have a sound and lighting rental, sales and installation company, but we do not only rent equipment; we also provide a full service as well to serve our clients' needs as good as we can."

As the Estonian EAW distributor, the festival in Viljandi provided a good demo event for their inventory, with every loudspeaker bar the NTL720 being powered by Lab.gruppen amplifiers.

The main system consisted of 14 EAW NTL720 active line array main hangs supported by the stacks of two of the EAW SB1000 subs per side which were powered by the two FP Lab.gruppen 14000 amplifiers. Four EAW JFL210 and two VFR129 were used for side and front-fills, which were powered by the two Lab.gruppen FP 10000Q's.

There were seven EAW Micro Wedge12 stage monitors in bi-amp configuration. Lab.gruppen fP 3400's, fP 2400Q and FP 10000Q were used for monitors. Both PA and monitors and were controlled by the 5xEAW UX8800 4in/8out DSP's.

"We used the FP 14000 for subs, as these are the best sounding sub amplifiers I have ever used," said Kivimägi. "They have plenty of headroom for regular setups and they work flawlessly under extreme conditions as well (for example 2Ohms load)."
