Sonisphere returns to Knebworth

sonisphere-2014Sonisphere returned to Knebworth after being missing for the past couple of summers.

With 50,000 fans attending over the three days and with this year being the 40th anniversary of music at the site, headline acts including Anthrax, Sisters of Mercy and Therapy? took to the Bohemia stage along with a mixture of bands new and old, comedy and wresting(!) taking to the Satellite stage.

We opted for Turbosound systems on each of these stages. With a mixture of TFA600H and HW boxes flying out front, TSW218’s along the stage front and TFM560 monitors on stage. PRO1, PRO2 and SD8 consoles were all present, along with Yamaha staples, M7CL’s and LS9’s taking care of other smaller systems on site.

We were tasked with providing complete production including audio (as above), lighting and site-wide backline provision.
