Front Row Sound Anywhere at the Fest: Outside Lands Demos Democratized Sound
It was unseasonably warm at this year’s Outside Lands Music Festival, with the often-foggy Golden Gate Park bathed in sunlight and the sounds of the artists Another Planet brought to play.
This year, a select few got a quick peek at what to expect from future festivals, with a tech upgrade courtesy of Mixhalo.
Outdoor music festivals are the perfect platform for us. Delivering crystal clear audio is a challenge, compounded by many fans’ desire to travel from one stage to another as the day progresses.
So…why not plug fans directly into the soundboard and give them front row sound wherever they are at the festival?
In collaboration with festival presenter Another Planet Entertainment, an investor in Mixhalo, we made exactly that happen. For now, it was friends, family, brand partners and a handful of others invited to pair the free Mixhalo app with 1MORE Triple Driver Over-Ear Headphones for access to exceptional audio from headliners like Flume, Childish Gambino and Paul Simon.
For future festivals, it’ll be anyone with a ticket.
Whether they’re dancing at the back of the crowd, cruising between stages to see another set, coming back from a beer run, drowning out the people around them or plugging directly into a distinct mix, Mixhalo democratizes sound for everybody at an event.
