For the 3rd year running, TEC provided sound and lighting for the
University of Nottingham Summer Party. This year, the festival
consisted of 3 venues: the mainstage and two dance tents.
Mainstage played host to acts ranging from student bands to headline acts such as Feeder, Pendulum and Example. The sound system was a massive groundstacked pile of Nexo Alpha, with a Nexo PS15 monitor rig. Control for both FoH and monitors was taken care of by Yamaha M7CL48s.
The lighting rig for mainstage, controlled from two Avolites Pearl Experts, consisted of Martin macs and atomics alongside the compulsory bars of PAR64s and ACLs.
The first dance tent showcased the best DJs local Nottingham clubs have to offer whilst the second was dedicated to drum and bass music. The PA systems were our tried and tested stacks of Alpha and Alpha-E whilst the lighting designs aimed to create two very different atmospheres.
Overall, despite massive budget cuts, the event was an overwhelming success and we look forward to working with the Students' Union to put on next year's event.
