Publish date:

Kling & Freitag has awarded Viiking Musiikki Oy exclusive distribution rights for Finland.

Viiking Musiikki Oy owner Juha Jäppinen has used K&F products for many years. The firms began working more closely when Jäppinen was providing the PA for the Finnish band Tarot in Hannover, where K&F’s Sequenza 10 Line Array system and the Scena 15 stage monitors were used.

The project was a success by all accounts and K&F awarded the company exclusive distribution rights at this year’s Prolight + Sound show. A Sequenza 10 system, a Scena 15 and other K&F products were soon delivered for demonstrations and renting purposes.

The system will be put to used for festival gigs with the gospel group Hillsong London. It will also be used for the Kuopio Vine l and Ilosaarirock Festival.
