This year’s Ultra Music Festival (UMF) Korea took place in Seoul, South Korea with more than 100,000 EDM fans and music lovers in attendance. The event was held at Jamsil Supplementary Stadium and featured the world’s top DJs and musical artists reinforced by Adamson E-Series loudspeakers.
The soccer field was converted into the nation’s largest outdoor club for the two day event. Electronic music was delivered by a number of big-name acts including Galantis, Porter Robinson, CL, Lil Jon, Bright Lights and Snoop Dogg.
Alpha Media Group (AMG), a prominent South Korean sound company, provided Adamson sound systems deployed at the main stage. Sun Kim, technical support manager for Sound Solutions (Adamson’s Korean distributor) assisted with system design utilizing Adamson’s Blueprint AV™ software. The PA consisted of two left-right arrays made up of twelve E15 and two E12 enclosures. Seven E218 subwoofers were stacked on the stage under each line array. Four more E218 were ground stacked in front of the stage for further bass support. Six S10 enclosures were placed along the lip of the stage for front fill. “It was a very stable system that handled the dynamic range of EDM without missing a beat,” explains Taejong Park, FOH engineer. “The sound was very clean, especially the low end.”DJ monitoring was handled by a total of six Adamson S10 enclosures – three per side -- stacked on a single subwoofer. The PA was driven by Lab.gruppen PLM20kQ and PLM12k44 amplifiers with two Lake LM44 units for processing.
As the most anticipated electronic music festival of the year, Ultra Music Korea exceeded the crowd’s expectations with amazing audio quality, video and light shows with the signature low end that the fans demand.“We were very pleased with the Adamson system at the show,” adds Sun Kim. “The field was transformed into a dance club and the music was exceptional – Adamson is the top name in the business and they lived up to their reputation.”
