The acoustics in the Ziggo Dome has been taken into account from the very start. In order to realize excellent acoustics, special provisions have been made during the building to realize excellent acoustics, from the ceiling to the stands, from chairs to walls.
Ziggo Dome has no influence on the other elements. The sound installation varies in brand and size per concert: it is brought along by the (crew of) the artist or band and used in each tour location. The sound technician, who is responsible for the volume and tuning of the sounds produced by the artist or band, also tour together with the artist or band. For the artist(s) it is important to be able to correctly handle the microphones and other equipment on the stage. If all these elements match, then the sound is good.
