Protec were called upon by their clients Envie Events to provide full AV support for the very first BAO EDM festival in Dubai held at Meydan Racecourse. Massive crowds attended to see the phenomenal line up of world class DJ’s including Martin Garrix and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.
Audio used a variety of equipment including the powerful L’Acoustics K1 line array and the classic but phenomenal V-DOSC to cover the vast area of the venue which didn’t allow for any delay in sound.
Video used the impressive state of the art Barco E2 linked with Barco S3 to provide 3x 4K input & 3x 4K output which were then split and distributed to 6 live and 6 backup Barco HDF W30K projectors as well as over 300 6mm & 9mm LED panels.
Lighting supplied and installed over 200 moving fixtures from market leaders Clay Paky and Robe amongst others. Protec also supplied the latest full size GrandMA3 and full size GrandMA2 lighting consoles.
Event Director Tessa Sprangemijer of Envie Events paid testament to Protec’s efforts and contribution to Bao. “A production of the scale of BAO requires nothing but the best from all teams and suppliers. Therefore we’re happy to once again have enlisted Protec who, with their extensive experience in AV technology in the region, took this project to the next level. The difficulties faced with a detailed stage of this magnitude and the storms we had to endure had everyone on their toes but teamwork, dedication and in-depth knowledge ensured everyone came together and brought forward solutions for every obstacle faced. In the end this surmounted to a show like never before seen in the region, we’re very proud!”
