Competition: WIN a PA to go

The best idea wins the JBL EON ONE Compact PA system along with all standard cables, a Soundcraft Signature 12MTK mixer and 2 AKG D5 Microphones worth over €1,800 (value based on RRP of relevant products). But that’s not all! You’ll also get a production budget of €1,000 to help make your Christmas gig a reality. The deadline for applications is 2nd November 2020.

How Your Idea Wins

Together with HARMAN, the mother company of JBL, we seek alternative venues where normally no sound systems are installed. Performing in the great outdoors is, of course, possible with the JBL EON ONE Compact, as with it you don’t need a regular power supply. Also conceivable are performances in the mountains, on a shop roof, on a boat, in the forest, from a trailer … – maybe there is something you always wanted to do, which is now possible? Please let us know!

Attention: Your gig is scheduled for Saturday, 5th December 2020. Consider the December climate in your concept! The Soundcraft mixer requires mains power.

Of course, it is nice when there is an audience too. Then make sure that you don’t expose your fans to any additional risk of infection.No legal violations are allowed. You can find ideas for social distancing concerts here and safety tips here.

Someone who has already realised the power of JBL equipment is Jonas Skielboe from VeloConcerts. Travelling by bicycle, doubling as a stage and using similar products from JBL, AKG, and Soundcraft, his band has performed by the sea and at various other remote locations. See here.
