ORGANISERS of a hugely successful three-day music festival have credited innovative sound technology as a contributing factor towards the best patron experience to date. Richie Eyles, Festival Director for Caloundra MusicFestival, selected the impressive Echo Barrier sound reduction panels to help improvesound isolation for each stage area – and reduce impact on the surrounding community. The event, which saw aggregated crowds of 20,000, resulted in minimal noise complaints as a result of the panelling, and far more sound clarity for musicians and revelers. Mr Eyles said: “We believe the ability of Echo Barrier to absorb sound contributed to cleaner sound, reduced noise spill and ultimately provided a better experience for all from patrons to organisers and musicians and of course our neighbours. “This control over noise gives us greater flexibility in future festival site layout.” He added: “Patrons at each stage enjoyed their chosen musicians without disturbance from other stages. Patrons, musicians, volunteers and staff attending the event were extremely impressed with the high quality sound.” Ray Lee, Director of Echo Barrier Australia, said: “We are thrilled that Mr Eyles and his team found the technology behind our barriers to beof such a positive impact on their Festival. “We’re proud of the contribution that our products bring to events like music festivals – as well as to construction sites and in high footfall areas of major cities.” Echo Barriers have already been used successfully at a range of events across the globe, including by MTV in Australia, the Eastern Electrics Festival in central London and the 2012 London Olympics.
