Tanzende vor dem Party Tower der CSD 2017Hamburg: On Friday, July 28, it was time again. Pride Week started with a colorful ship parade on the Elbe followed by a dazzling supporting program over the weekend.

Hamburg-Pride 2017 Party Tower mit TouringSubs und TouringLine LinearraysNational and International artists were once again on stage at the CSD street festival from Augst 4th to 6th.  And in the midst of the colorful party-goers, our friend Borhen “Bo” Azzouz, of Sub-Events Veranstalungstechnik ensured that the event ran smoothly as the technical service provider.

He was duely proud of his crew and their work, especially about his two-story party tower at a total height of 6.5 meters.  “the tower and the second smaller stage were built only with 3 men and can also be used as a FOH tower”.  In order to achieve the best possible sound coverage on the dancefloor, the tower was equipped with 18″ Touring subwoofers and flanked by TouringLine Line Arrays.  The party community acknowledged Bo & Co.’s success with exuberant parties and dancing lasting into the early morning hours.
