Outdoor Stages Supplies Staging, Sound, and Lighting to GoFest Active Festival

Outdoor Stages has enjoyed yet another busy summer! One of our most enjoyable festival jobs this year was supplying the staging, sound, and lighting for GoFest, a family-friendly sports festival in Guildford, Surrey.

The idea of the festival is simple – to introduce a wide range of sports to children and their families. With over 50 different sports available to choose from, there really was something for everyone!

The day rounded off with performances on the stage by gymnasts, dance troupes, and live bands (including some of the area's best tribute acts).

And with our help, the festival ran smoothly from start to finish. So let's tell you a little bit more about this very active festival and the work we put in to ensure it was a resounding success.

Outdoor Stages Helps Guildford Get Active with Top-Class Event Production Services

From archery to Zumba classes, GoFest offered something for everyone who wanted to get active and have fun. The event, held in July, enjoyed some fantastic weather and attendance figures were the best yet, which is even more impressive given that it had to take a hiatus over the pandemic period.

While the primary focus was the sports, fitness, and dance classes on offer, all attendees came together at the end of the day to enjoy some live entertainment on the main stage, which was, of course, provided by us.

The organisers opted for our versatile 6m x 4m arc roof outdoor stage, which was just perfect as a focal point on the local playing field. It was just big enough to accommodate the various performers and had a professional look that helped to raise the overall professionalism of the event.

However, a stage, no matter how good-looking, is nothing without a great sound system and lighting rig to go with it. So let's tell you a little more about what we supplied on the event production front.

Outdoor Stages Complements Arc Roof Stage with Impressive Event Production Equipment for GoFest

The first port of call was the PA system. We used our industry-leading d&b audiotechnik sound system, which is more than capable of delivering crystal clear audio to large audiences. It had everything, from active speakers to stage monitors, power amps, and a digital mixing desk to ensure every sound was just perfect.

We also supplied a whole host of microphones for band vocals, MC announcements, and even for some of the fitness instructors who wanted to be heard clearly over the music.

As for the stage lighting, we used a selection of our professional stage lighting equipment from our Surrey warehouse. This included LED par can lights, which are perfect for washing a stage in colours, as well as some moving head lights, which added some extra wow factor to the performances.

We also rolled out all of the usual suspects, including spotlights, disco lighting fixtures, laser machines, uplighters, and strip lights, to name just a few.

All in all, it was a great day out for all the family, and we were delighted to be a part of it. We're already looking forward to next year's event!
