A heatwave last Sunday was perfectly timed for a one day open-air festival at Warwick University. Three days of tailing in generators, running site power, rigging and sound engineering culminated in a stonking set by Feeder, followed buy the ever-popular Chase & Status.
We used a EAW KF 740 line array PA with 6x SB1002 a side. FOH desks by Yamaha (the ubiquitous M7CL), Digidesign (the SC24 venue) and DigiCo. A new DigiCo SD11 out on demo was used to sub-mix the FOH desk and support the DJs.
I was working a M7CL onstage with montors and in-ears a’plenty. Reconfiguring the outputs between bands was a full-time job, and my colleague onstage, Ollie, did a fine job of dealing with inputs while I sorted the outputs.
Feeder is one of those bands where you know a lot more of their material than you realise (or maybe that’s just me) – and they went down a storm.
