VAI Resort Selects L-Acoustics K1 Professional PA System for VAI Amphitheater, Set to Open in 2025

VAI Resort is poised to redefine the live entertainment experience, offering unparalleled hospitality, cutting-edge technology, and a world-class lineup of artists

VAI Resort, the highly anticipated estimated $1 billion hotel, resort, and live entertainment destination, has chosen an L-Acoustics K1 professional PA system for its state-of-the-art VAI Amphitheater, set to open next year. With a plan to activate the stage over 100 times annually, the VAI Amphitheater is poised to become the Southwest’s premier entertainment venue and destination.

The VAI Amphitheater will be booked by C3 Presents and Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment company. The L-Acoustics system, recognized and sought after by artists, will be a key feature to attract the world’s biggest names to the resort stage.

“We are excited about bringing the L-Acoustics audio experience to VAI Amphitheater,” says Howard Weiss, VAI Resort’s Senior Vice President of Entertainment and Sponsorships. “Having music fans experience L-Acoustics’ state-of-the-art audio system will only add to the ultimate concert experience we are set to deliver. Plus, artists who play at VAI will know that their music will be heard through the same professional PA systems that are only available at the premier music venues throughout the world.”

A unique departure from typical large-scale concert venues, the VAI Amphitheater stage can be experienced from classic raked audience seating or from hotel room balconies, sky boxes, and VIP booths that embrace the venue. Even guests in the surrounding pool area will be able to see and hear the show. Boasting a capacity of over 11,000, the venue is the ideal space to immerse fans in the heart of the performance. The VAI Amphitheater ensures large-scale events with a unique, intimate atmosphere.

No matter which vantage fans choose, the VAI Amphitheater guarantees exceptional sound quality and performance with its rider-recognized L-Acoustics professional PA system. The main stage will boast a K1/K2-based professional PA system, the same system already heard on the world’s biggest tours and at festivals such as Coachella. Guests enjoying the sprawling pool area behind the stage will enjoy the show through a powerful K2/Kara II concert system.

In addition to exceptional concert experiences, L-Acoustics professional sound systems will be installed throughout the resort, creating a seamless, consistent audio signature in key areas of the venue, including a cocktail lounge, a cigar bar, a steakhouse, and even in the artist suites. “Howard and the VAI team are committed to bringing an unparalleled level of quality through all the spaces at VAI Resort, and we at L-Acoustics share that vision,” says B.J. Shaver, Director of Sales at L-Acoustics. “Throughout the resort, their attention to detail matches our own, and we look forward to providing an exceptional audio experience to artists, fans, and visitors at VAI.”

Setting the VAI Amphitheater apart is its commitment to providing a seamless and extraordinary experience for artists. Every aspect of the artist’s journey has been meticulously designed to create a “Plug & Play” concept, eliminating the need for artists to bring their own equipment.

VAI Resort is poised to redefine the live entertainment experience, offering unparalleled hospitality, cutting-edge technology, and a world-class lineup of artists.
