Featuring Glastonbury’s iconic Pyramid Stage, the model has full replica Martin Audio MLA hangs and MLX subwoofers in place whilst a flag-waving crowd listen on – there is even a queue for the toilets.
The model built by Bright Bricks, a professional Lego building company, took over 120 man hours and 12,500 bricks to complete and sits on a stand measuring 1.2m x 1.2m.
“We wanted to celebrate our involvement in arguably the most prestigious festival in the world and the record breaking success of MLA last year,” explained James King, director of marketing.
“We thought as a bit of theatre for this year’s Prolight+Sound it would garner lots of attention.”
Courtesy of RG Jones Sound Engineering, Martin Audio has been the main PA of the Pyramid stage since 2007 and in 2014 its MLA system broke records with the loudest recorded sound levels at FOH, whilst still maintaining the strict off site noise pollution levels.
“It’s one of the projects that you get a real kick out of,” James continues. “Lego, loudspeakers, Glastonbury… what more is there to life!”
“We’ve had many people asking whether we will mass produce these, but this will definitely be a one off. We have, however, produced 500 Limited Edition Lego Certified Professional MLA Mini models that are sure to be seen on many of our partners’ desks in the coming weeks.”
Standing at nearly 12cm tall, the MLA Mini model is gift boxed with instructions on how to build it and comes with decorating stickers.
“It doesn’t make any sound, but it’s sure to create quite a stir,” says James.
Martin Audio’s Glastonbury Festival Lego model featuring MLA will be on show at Prolight+Sound 2015 on stand F60 in Hall 8.0.
