DTS in history with Rockin’ 1000 ‘That’s live’.

For the first time ever a band of 1,200 musicians performed before an enthusiastic audience in a concert worthy to enter the Guinness Book of Records.
Rockin ‘1000 ‘That’s live’ is all this and much more.
After the epic of the first Rockin’ 1000, Fabio Zaffagnini tries again and it’s still a success; The event feedback will be viral again.
Because this time it is not about convincing the Foo Fighters to play in Cesena. This time 1200 musicians from all over the world have shown that a shared desire knows no obstacles, and that the passion for rock music unites people who are otherwise different from each other. A message that acquires a deeper meaning in a time like the present.
On the lawn of the Manuzzi stadium in Cesena, Italy, the 1200 musicians played a real concert before an audience of 13,000 (the tickets were sold out).
A thrilling start with Bitter Sweet Symphony of Verve in a continuous crescendo through Beatles, Rolling Stones and Bowie, until a torrid final Led Zeppelin medley.
In short, a great performance, thanks to a perfect technical organization.

DTS was there with over 400 moving lights, at the very centre of the beautiful light show created by LD Claudio Tappi, who has transformed this unique event into an extraordinary visual feast, in the best traditions of the great rock concerts.
The EVOs were arranged in backlight on a large matrix; The RAPTORs were positioned along the perimeter around the musicians and on the trusses; The NRG 1201 units colored the audience.
It was an honor for DTS to light such an extraordinary event that has already entered into history; we feel proud for the support we gave to the success of Rockin’1000 ‘That’s live’.

The staging of the concert was made by B-HAPPY (technical sponsor of the event), directed by Fabrizio Persico, who has faced this challenge with an involvement that went way beyond the normal rental company work.
We thank the valuable collaboration of AMG International for the DTS moving heads supply.
Special thanks to Francesco Penolazzi, sound engineer and supervisor of the project.
