E-mail Print PDF

EDC 2016LAS VEGAS — An intensifying heat wave in the U.S. Southwest posed some concerns, but Insomniac Production’s 2016 Electric Daisy Carnival event at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway went relatively smoothly. One crew member looking after the Bass Pod stage sustained minor burn-related injuries in a pyro accident on the second night of the three-night event, however. The glitch damaged set elements and speakers, but performances resumed at the Bass Pod area later that night.

Danley, Ashly Get Checkered Flag at Atco Dragway

E-mail Print PDF

Atco Dragway.ATCO, NJ -  For more than 50 years, New Jersey's Atco Dragway has set the scene for many of the memories most cherished by Northeast drag-racing enthusiasts. Its quarter-mile strip sees action more days than not (in addition to weekend events, weekday events are commonplace), making Atco Dragway one of the busiest in the country. However, the thunder from the engines was, until recently, the only full-frequency effect at Atco; all of the sound reinforcement squeezed its way into the world through anemic paging horns. Now, fully-weatherproofed, full-frequency Danley OS-80 loudspeakers backed by Ashly processing and amplification keep up- if only sonically- with the dragsters on the dragway.
