yes, they changed to the center cluster after the original array did not function as planned.

Personally I thought the top boxes sounded good in general at Robotika. It certainly didn't blow me away, but it didn't sound bad at all, something just wasn't quite right in the highs for me. Being enclosed within walls made from shipping containers is never going to make for an easy day though.

Very very loud during soundcheck but I'd expect that from 9 boxes a side. But even with 16 F221 the bass was unable to provide much at all below 50hz and was very loud from 80hz up.

Was is any louder this year than last? The whole festival last year seemed pretty quiet like some strick sound level control was in place. Might be that ive had my head in to many bass bins. Looks amazing in the pics.

Winchester City Council are really right with sound restrictions and seem to be trying to increase those restrictions even further!

I was only a punter at Boomtown this year so don't know the exact details of the sound levels but it was definitely louder on the Thursday and Sunday day time than it was any other time.

I heard that three of the stages broke the sound restrictions on the Friday night so all the stages were forced to turn down at 9pm or face being kicked out and apparently permanently banned...I heard that several stages were told to cut off frequencies below 50hz and some even 80hz....really sucks!

Real shame though because all I've seen on Facebook since Boomtown is people moaning about the sound levels on the Sunday night but there's really not a lot anyone can do about it...just a shame the neighbours can't accept a faraway rumble for one weekend a year.

They had major issues off site on Friday due various reasons, resulting in people getting turned down a lot later on. Some stage even having sub channels muted. As a result they had to be very careful on the Saturday night with levels. 

Overall it was nowhere near as bad as people are making out, keeping 120 stages in check is never going to be easy, and compared to a lot of other UK festivals the levels are pretty damn good! The production values and quality of lineup more than make up for it for me.
