Every June sees the return of the New Music Nights Festival, which gets bigger and better every year. Now a three-day event, this popular outdoor event was launched in 2014 to celebrate and promote original music in and around the Reigate and wider South East region.
This year, Outdoor Stages was thrilled to be chosen as the stage production supplier for the festival. It's a fantastic event to be a part of, and we're always keen to support up-and-coming musical talent.
So let's tell you all about it and the hard work we put in to make it happen.
New Music Nights Festival Returns to Reigate Rugby Club
Once again, festivalgoers descended on Reigate Rugby Club for a weekend of live music. With over 30 acts performing across three days, there was plenty to see and do.
Beyond the music, there were several food and drink stalls, vendors sending merchandise and other festival essentials, and plenty of space for the kids to run around. Better still, camping remains free at this festival, not something you see at too many others these days!
As mentioned, the main draw was the live music, Friday evening getting things off to a raucous start, before an all-day set on Saturday and acoustic performances filling up the remaining time on Sunday.
As you can imagine, with so many eyes focused on the stage, the pressure was on us to make sure everything looked and sounded great.
Outdoor Stages Supplies Full Stage Production to Surrey Music Festival
The festival organisers approached us back in 2021 to enquire about our stage hire and event production services. After meeting with them to discuss their requirements, we put together a package that would cover everything they needed (and more).
Ultimately, they went for our biggest arc roof stage, which delivers a whopping 3500kg roof payload and a workable stage area of 10m x 8m. This headline festival stage delivers an imposing and professional look, helping any artist to feel at the top of their game.
In addition to the stage, we also supplied a full PA system installation that more than matched the artists' rider requests, and of course, our best-in-class d&b audiotechnik equipment was selected for the job.
We then added to the stage production by rigging a premium suite of lighting fixtures above the stage, which created an incredible light show throughout the festival. Moving heads, PAR cans, stage blinders, stage washes, uplighters, and disco lighting fixtures all featured to deliver a stunning show.
However, we weren't done there; far from it.
Additional Event Production Equipment Supplied to New Music Nights Festival
Being the headline stage for the event, we had to ensure we gave the festivalgoers an audiovisual experience they wouldn't forget in a hurry. That's why, in addition to the stage and lighting, we also supplied one of our super-sharp LED screens, which was flown from a set of PA wings extending out from the side of the stage.
The screen featured accompanying visuals throughout the festival, adding an extra layer to the performances and giving the audience something to feast their eyes on. It also relayed a live camera feed of the stage, so those at the back could still see everything going on.
Overall, we're proud to say that the festival organisers were pleased with how everything looked and sounded, and we hope that all the attendees had a fantastic time too. We obviously did pretty well as we were immediately booked for next year's festival. We can't wait to do it all again next year!
