Maitreya 2013 & 2014
Maitreya 2013 & 2014
Following the success of rainbow serpent 2013 we were contacted by the lovely folk at Maitreya festival to provide the sound for their main stage. We were more than happy to accommodate them for their March 2013 festival which is held annually in Victoria. The festival's concept is simple, to come together as a community, meet new people, share knowledge and ideas. An open mind is essential to gain as much as possible from the experience that is Maitreya and looking back we have some great memories from this very different, peaceful and loving festival.
After consulting with the organisers, plus a good helping of our own indulgence, we decided to provide a system more than capable of fulfilling the requirements of the stage. After all, we love a big pile of Funktion-One as much as the next person!
6 F218's and 6 Res5's per side provided the grunt for front of house with 2 Res 2's delivering infill coverage. Monitoring was provided by a Res2 stacked vertically on an R18 per side, our sound set up impressed everyone so the organisers of Maitreya invited us to come back in 2014 but this time supply the main and rockets stages, this was a big undertaking as both are large areas but was one we embraced and again over compensated on sound!
For the main stage we provided;
8 F218's and 8 Res5' on each side with 2 Res 2's for infill and as a suprise we added x8 F121 subs across the front of stage to give it a serious kick, the sound was immense and crowd reaction was incredible!
We also brought along the new Funktion One PSM318 Dj monitors designed in conjunction with Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin, these montiors are being hailed as the best around by every major headline Dj to perform at Rainbow Serpent, Earth Frequency, Maitreya and reading into press from Funktion One, also throughout the world! so we are very happy to have them in stock and also hold the only pair currently in Australia.
And for the Rockit Stage;
4 F218's and 3 Res5 on each side for front of house kept the crowd bouncing and 2 Res 2's on R18's for the monitor system put a big smile on all the Djs faces over the weekend.
Overall 2014 like 2013 was a great success for us with excellent feedback from Maitreya, so we are again pleased to announce Full Throttle Ent will be providing the sound for 2015!
