The Australian Gospel Music Festival's Easterfest 2008 was a success with Electro-Voice.Easter 2008 saw the Australian Gospel Music Festival celebrate its tenth anniversary with a name change to "Easterfest". Located inside a large six pole tent, the festival "B" stage-called the "Bigtop"-featured a full Electro-Voice sound system, including XLC/XLD combination line arrays, QRx 218 subs, and a spread of new Phoenix monitors, all powered by EV amplifiers.

The Bigtop stage also relied upon EV equipment at the input end of the signal chain, thanks to a complete EV microphone kit. Along with a number of tried and trusted RE-1 wireless systems, a pair of new REV wireless handheld transmitters, custom supplied in chrome, made a visual impact to match their superb acoustic performance.

"I have an extensive collection of vintage EV microphones," says FOH engineer Phill Webb, "many of which are chrome, so having chrome transmitters seemed to be a natural extension; if you can't hide it, you highlight it!"

N/D967 dynamic and RE510 condenser capsules were also on hand for each transmitter.

"The venue did everything from contemporary worship service to acoustic performance to thrash rock and roll, with the REV transmitters out front for all performances," Webb adds. "We used the RE510 heads for the worship service and changed to N/D967 heads for the rock bands. Simple!"
