I was asked if I was available to work this gig by wigwam. It was in Daventry so I got the train from Southampton and stayed in the hotel that the conference was based in for the week of the conference.
It was an easy gig channel-wise, but you were pretty much working all day (from 7:30 am till 9 pm with breaks throughout the day) and always had to keep an eye on the stage in case something unexpected happened and someone’s mic needed to be turned on/off.
There were 7 channels of Shure radio mics. 4 handhelds and 3 Beltpacks with a mixture of Lav and Headsets depending on the person speaking. There was also a guy called Noel Edmonds playing the guitar with a microphone leading worship, as well as a couple of channels of playback.
The PA mainly consisted of D&B Y Series with 4x Y7P’s 2x E8’s as front fill on the edge of the stage and 2x B6 Subwoofers. Also had 2x M6 Wedges all powered off 2 D80 Amplifiers.
