This past weekend at Bearded Theory Festival, I was once again working on the Woodland Stage for Beefstock PA Hire. The headline act was Reverend and The Makers. It was another successful festival and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the production. The team are really friendly and the bands are good fun too!
The Lighting guys always take good care of us, providing us with crew BBQ's and socials at the end of the show, which are always a good way to relax and reflect on the day.
The main difference this year to previous years I have worked was the oppotunity to use my own full Front of House mixing set up. This was added to the already existing processing that we have used before. It was a great test for both the board and the new processing. I find a festival is always the best way to get to know new gear.
All the guest engineers were pleased with the equipment they were walking up to.
I got to mix some great bands, and was lucky enough this year to spend most of my time at mix position and getting to know the equipment. I think I had the best job of the weekend, playing with the new toys!
I look forward to the oppotunity of working it again next year.
