Peavey Versarrays on tour

A number of major music festivals in the UK this summer will benefit from Peavey's full Versarray 212 system, which made its UK festival debut at Download in June.

Download Festival became one of the first European festivals ever to be provided with a full Versarray 212 system as Peavey kitted out its Jägermeister stage from 10th-12th June. Peavey will continue to provide the same rig to Jägermeister stages up and down the UK at a string of this year’s major summer festivals.

Although the amount of boxes may vary depending on the size of individual stages, the core Peavey set-up comprises two hangs of Versarray 212 mid/high enclosures, with Versarray 218 subwoofers providing low frequency reinforcement beneath the stage. Crest CV-20 56 Premium and HP-Eight (40 frame) consoles are deployed for FOH and monitor work respectively; and all power is provided by Crest Pro 9200 and 7200 amplifiers.

Upcoming festivals include Sonisphere at Knebworth on 8th-10th July, where The Defiled will headline the Jägermeister stage; Splendour Festival in Nottingham on 24th July, which will be headlined by Feeder; and Kent’s Hevy Festival, which takes place between 5th-8th August, where Funeral for a Friend will perform on the Jägermeister main stage.

“After the success of the system on the Agora stage at Frankfurt Messe, it was a logical choice to use the same system for the Jägermeister summer festivals,” said Peavey’s Jock Shannon. “Last year we used a Versarray 112 system, but with the rise in profile of the stage, along with the quality of the bands, it was essential to have a system to match this. The Versarray 212 provides sufficient power and headroom to fully compliment the quality of musicians playing on the stage.”
