JBL Professional VTX A-Series at St Kilda Festival

St Kilda VIC, 17-18 February 2024


The iconic St Kilda Festival in Melbourne’s famed foreshore suburb takes over the entire area for a weekend in February. Local production company Light & Sound Solutions provide full production for six stages in total. One of these stages, the New Music stage, was graced with a ground stacked A Series system, installed, and tuned by MadisonAV’s Peter Kubow.



With over 300,000 people gathering each year, St Kilda Festival is Australia’s largest free and all ages music festival. Australia’s hottest new talents competing in the New Music Competition were heard through the JBL VTX A Series, including winner Mudrat, and other finalists including Brekky Boy, Good Pash, and Jewel Owusu.

“The PA did a great job of creating a nice rich sound across the listening area” comments Andrew Stanley, managing director of Light & Sound Solutions. “The size and weight are good, and I think A Series will fit into the market nicely’”

“The rigging capability is great,” he continues.. “It's all integrated, which makes it so much easier. We were ground stacked at the New Music stage, but whether it's hanging or ground stacked, you're using the same pins.”

Having assessed the A Series’ performance throughout the festival, Andrew is open to hearing more of it. “We’re always looking for that new box,” he explains. “In the recent past JBL hasn't been up there in the tier-one range of PAs. A Series is bringing them back into the market. It’s a fresh look, fresh sound, and represents a return to form for JBL.”
