For the second year running I was working at 2000 Trees festival. This event won the ‘Grassroots Festival Award’ winner in 2010 and has expanded to include 4 live venues – ranging from a solar powered greenhouse to the main stage. Capacity has also gone up by a thousand or so.
I was working the main stage, with EAW KF740 PA and Soundcraft MH2/3 desks. Over two days of music myself and colleagues Ollie (on mics) and Pete (running FOH) pushed 18 bands on and off stage.
Highlights included Twin Atlantic, who brought a full in-ear system, and used no on-stage speakers at all, and Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip working the crowd into frenzy.
