With the closure of Opium Rooms for the summer season, it looks like Hangar, District 8, Index and Button Factory are the only large spaces that our small city has to offer. All are equipped with full Funktion-One rigs, but one is about to make a big switch.
A lot of you might have seen the new Void rig at Higher Vision Festival earlier this year, and for those of you that did, you will understand how powerful it was. The first of its kind in Ireland, it was flown in for the occasion, but now it looks like Hangar will be kitted out with two brand new rigs consisting of the thunderous gear and debut it in a club. A new lighting system is also in the works as the venue gets a huge overhaul, technically speaking. Here’s the breakdown of the specs being installed.
- 4 x Atomic Strobes,
- 4 x Chauvet Intimidators
- 2 x Showtec Sunstrips
- 1 x New Graphite Lighting Desk
- 4 x Stage Monitors
- 4 x Air Motion Speakers
- 4 x Monitors
- 15 x Void Speakers (Mixed Size and Shape)
Techno & Cans are already known for their banging kick drums, can you imagine the blast out of these on a Friday & Saturday nights.
Hangar are giving you a chance to experience the new sound systems for the opening weekend for free here.
