L-Acoustics user The Hollywood Bowl took home honors at the Pollstar Awards earlier this month.
Los Angeles (February 29, 2012)—The Hollywood Bowl and Coachella Festival—each a longtime user of L-Acoustics loudspeakers—took home honors at the 23rd annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards earlier this month.
The Hollywood Bowl, home to a sizeable V-Dosc system, was presented with an award for “Best Major Outdoor Concert Venue.” This marks the eighth consecutive year that the Hollywood Bowl has won this recognition, which was first presented to the venue in 2005, directly following the Bowl’s inaugural season with its new L-Acoustics sound system.
Indio, California’s Coachella Festival was similarly presented with an award for “Major Music Festival of the Year (non-touring).” For over a decade, Rat Sound Systems, Inc. has been deploying L-Acoustics gear—including V-Dosc, Kudo and, now, K1—to deliver Coachella’s sound reinforcement. Like the Hollywood Bowl, this is also the eighth time that the festival has been presented with this award.
“We warmly congratulate both the Hollywood Bowl and Coachella Festival,” says Paul Freudenberg, L-Acoustics business development manager – Americas. “The unprecedented fact that each of them have won this award eight times in less than 10 years is a testimony to their widely celebrated reputations for excellence, and we at L-Acoustics are honored to have been a part of their successes.”
