Ibiza has got its own festival, the ´123 Rocktronic Festival´, which will now be held annually in early July. With big names like Sting, Elton John, Chic and Lenny Kravitz, this inaugural festival was an immediate hit.
United went with the OB15 to Ibiza to record the three day event. Following an intensive day of building, this fabulous concert was recorded with eight cameras - plus an extra one here and there. The audio, for MADI (Multichannel Audio Digital Interface) as well as for the stage speakers, was recorded with 120 channels multitrack. The talented young people that United sent to do the job knew exactly how to capture the atmosphere of the festival. Dust and heat provided challenges, but with intensive cleaning, United still knew how to keep the images flawless.
