Founded nearly 40 years ago by Doug Lyngard, Victoria-based DL Sound is a team of passionate sound engineers, lighting designers, monitor techs and crew with years of local and international experience creating unforgettable concerts, tours, events and festivals. The company’s blend of techs and extensive sound, lighting and LED video wall equipment inventory has fostered its local reputation of outstanding live entertainment production.
“There is a lot of work, precision planning and hours that go into what we do; for some festivals, we start planning and designing months out, but it’s all worth it to see attendees smiling, creating unforgettable memories and adding value to the arts, music and culture scene of Vancouver Island,” says Lyngard.
DL Sound took on their greatest feat to date during the triumphant return of the 2022 Rifflandia Music Festival. With over 40,000 attendees across the 4-day festival, the pressure was on! The crew tackled the six stages and several lighting activations across the massive Electric Avenue site. DL Sound provided all the equipment for the Electric Avenue site, along with crew, sound and lighting technicians that mixed for heavy-weight headliners Dillon Francis, Rêve, DJ Diesel (Shaquille O’Neal), Whipped Cream, The Funk Hunters, Chali 2NA and Cut Chemist (to name a few).
DL Sound’s client roster stretches across the Island, with events such as The Phillips Brewery Backyard, Filberg Festival, Sunfest, the Victoria Ska Festival, Spot Prawn Festival, Colwood’s Eats and Beats Beach Party, Strathcona Hotel, among many others. The company also provides production services for private, civic and corporate events such as Brink Events, 17 Black, The Good Party, Seaspan, Car Free YYJ, expos and conventions.
In addition, DL Sound works with the community to provide internships, mentoring and hands-on experience to develop relevant skills and jump-start future technicians’ and production assistants’ careers in the live entertainment sector.
The team’s dedication to quality as well as its vast inventory makes DL Sound Vancouver Island’s most trusted and reliable full-service production company. Well-produced events should feel seamless — that’s DL Sound’s motto.
