Nottingham University Students Union turned to TEC again this year to provide sound and lighting for the annual Summer Party, which according to radio 1 is the largest and most successful student-only festival in the country.
The festival this year consisted of 4 dance tents, an introductions stage and of course the main stage featuring N-Dubz, Chicane, Example, Funeral For a Friend and many more.
For main stage this year we used Nexo's Geo S12 line array system with an Yamaha M7CL48 and a Midas XL3 at FOH. The monitor rig was Nexo PS-15s, Nexo Alpha-E and Sennheiser IEMs run off another M7CL48. Lighting consisted of Martin Atomics, Clay Paky AlphaWash 300s, AlphaBeam 300 and AlphaSpot 1200s run alongside generics such as bars of ACLs and the obligatory bars of PAR64 cans using an Avolites Pearl Expert console.
The dance tents consisted of 20k Nexo Alpha or Alpha-E PA with lighting fixtures including Martin Mac250s, Martin Atomics, Martin Wizards, Thomas Pixel Line and High End Technobeams.
The introductions stage (inside one of the tents before the night-time events took off) made use of a Yamaha LS932 FOH desk with Nexo Alpha for PA. The monitor rig make use of a Soundcraft SM12 desk with SSE MB3 wedges.
The event was again a great success and, with no issues at all on the day, ran almost too smoothly!
