DeLuna Fest 2012 Photo Gallery
For three days and nights, from September 21 to 23, 2012, fans rocked out on the beach at DeLuna Fest in Pensacola, Fla. More than 60 bands performed on stages overlooking pristine sandy-white beaches and the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, including headliners Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters and Zac Brown Band.
Blackhawk Audio of Nashville provided the Meyer Sound systems for the DeLuna Stage (with Meyer Sound LEO) and WindCreek Stage (with Meyer Sound MILO), which pumped reggae rhythms from Jimmy Cliff, hard rocking guitars from The Gaslight Anthem and Guided By Voices, and soaring vocals from Florence and the Machine. Backstage, musicians were invited to record tracks in the Echo Mountain Mobile Recording Studio. Featuring high-end state-of-the-art studio equipment and professional engineers brought down from their two Asheville, N.C. studios, Echo Mountain invited bands including Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, The Canvas Waiting, Blackberry Smoke, Redd Kross, Band of Skulls, Ben Sollee and more to record in an intimate backstage setting.
