The first weekend of July saw the return of the ever-popular Sandhurst Music Festival, headlined by local band Hudson's Choice and a range of other impressive tribute acts, covering acts such as ABBA, Little Mix, and Ed Sheeran.
The family-friendly event took place in Sandhurst Memorial Park, with a variety of food and drink vendors on site to keep visitors refreshed throughout the day, and concluded with a spectacular firework display.
Outdoor Stages were once again proud to be the chosen production and staging partner for the event, providing a range of equipment, including PA systems, lighting, and generators. So let's tell you a little more about what we took care of to ensure this event was yet another success.
Outdoor Stages Provides Headline Stage for Sandhurst Music Festival
While there were plenty of food stalls, kid's activities, and a well-stocked bar, the star of the show and focal point for the event was undoubtedly the Outdoor Stages-supplied headline stage.
The 10m x 8m arc roof structure was built to house full live bands, complete with stage lighting fixtures, a top-of-the-range d&b audiotechnik PA system, and black stage drapes to provide an extra touch of professionalism and VIP treatment for the local performers.
We also supplemented the stage with a pair of PA wings, which helped to expand the stage footprint and make it look even more imposing.
The lighting lineup included stage spotlights, LED PAR cans, moving head fixtures, stage blinders, and LED uplighters. The PA system was similarly well-stocked and included stage-floor-based monitors and power amps to ensure the performers could hear themselves as the audience.
Lastly, we supplied the microphones and handled all of the sound mixing through our Midas M32 digital mixer, which gave the sound technicians complete control over the audio for the event.
Outdoor Stages Provides Full-Service Event Production to Sandhurst Music Festival
As mentioned, our brief included looking after all aspects of technical production for the event. So, in addition to sound mixing and lighting show direction, we also handled all of the power generation, cable and distro requirements for this outdoor event.
We brought one of our new ultra-silent generators to power the stage, stage lighting, and PA system, and we also supplied a bank of 16A distribution units, which we used to extend power to the food and drink stalls.
Our team also took care of the rigging and derigging for the event, which meant that the festival could simply enjoy the day without having to worry about any of the technical aspects.
We had a fantastic time working on this local festival that supports local acts and businesses, and we're already looking forward to next year's event!
