Tunisia - The Fairground Festival is based in Sousse, on the east coast of Tunisia. This past summer the festival hit a whole new level in just its fourth year, where more than 7,000 attendees made their way to the festival, from all over Tunisia and other countries.
This year’s Fairground theme was Amazing Culture and highlighted popular acts such as Giorgia Angiuli, Jan Blomqvist, ARTBAT & Tantsui, as well as 36 other electronic music artists including 23 artists from Tunisia. The Clair Brothers gear was provided by Pro Audio & Light (PAL), Clair Brothers’ exclusive distributor in the region.
On the main stage, 32 C8 line arrays provided the overall sound, which according to Yasmine Bejaoui, stage manager at PAL, “is one of our best systems, if not the best. Since we obtained this PA, it’s the one we highlight the most.”
Along with C8s, four Clair Brothers CS118 subs, plus a host of custom subs, were called on to handle the massive low-end popular among EDM artists. On-stage sound was provided by four Clair Brothers 1.5AM monitors in tandem with the SD12 DiGiCo desk.
The entire configuration was powered by the Powersoft Audio X-Series, X4 & X4L amplifiers and a Waves MaxxBass bass enhancer processor. Bejaoui elaborates: “The festival was spread over two days, in a huge arena called Eco Village. This large area represented a much anticipated opportunity for PAL to install our entire inventory of C8 boxes.”
Anis Ben Ammar, the promoter of Fairground Festival, adds, “My team and I have always trusted PAL’s professionalism and expertise. The equipment choices they make for sound and lighting are always spot on. It’s why I’m in full support of whatever decisions they make. The sound of the music from this PA is really something special. PAL and Clair Brothers delivered once again.”
