Adlib Give L-Acoustics Limelight

Leading UK audio specialist Adlib’s Scottish operation supplied a substantial L-Acoustics package, including DiGiCo control to Limelight Event Services, a production and rental company based in Inverness, owned and run by Craig Duncan.

The purchases include most of the current L-Acoustics range of speakers: K2, KARA KIVA and ARCS WIDE plus HiQ wedges, supplied together with LA amplifiers, proprietary flying systems, a set of LoadGuard motors and rigging.

Duncan commented: “We feel that L-Acoustics is the best option for the majority of our work, and it’s the system most often requested by band riders. This, coupled with the great relationship we enjoy with Adlib and their excellent after-sales support, made it an easy decision”.

Limelight had already developed a relationship with Adlib as they previously owned a smaller L-Acoustics system and would use Adlib to source cross hires for larger shows and for spares as necessary.

“There is a rise in demand for leading technologies and quality production values on the Scottish market, both in the live performance arena and for fixed installations, and our knowledgeable and proactive sales team is dedicated to assisting its development,” explained John Hughes.

Duncan founded limelight Event Services in 1991 and currently has 6-10 full time employees, with around 12 regular freelancers who work full-time for the whole season on a variety of festivals, concerts and events.

In addition to those mentioned above, other shows utilising Limelight’s new audio kit have included The Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival near Inverness, shows with Olly Murs and the Loch Ness Marathon.
