UK - Midas digital consoles delivered a rock solid sound foundation at this year's rather wet and muddy T in the Park festival, Scotland.

As the rain fell in sheets, bands including Snow Patrol, Florence and The Machine, The Stone Roses, Kasabian along with hundreds of other acts kept things lively and upbeat on the a disused airfield in Balado, Kinross-shire.

Ensuring sound quality on the Radio 1 / NME Stage was Scottish rental company EFX Audio, headed up by engineer Steph Fleming, who supplied two Midas XL8s and a PRO2C at FOH, one PRO6 and one PRO9 on Monitors.

Working alongside Fleming on the Radio 1 / NME Stage was Midas' Jason Kelly: "I think pretty much every T in the Park headliner used Midas," says Kelly. "Two Door Cinema Club brought their own PRO2C, however almost all of the other acts including David Guetta, Professor Green, and Swedish House Mafia, used the house XL8s."

Over on the Main Stage, a raft of headline band engineers bought along their own Midas consoles, many supplied by Britannia Row, including: FOH Engineer Robbie McGrath with The Stone Roses; FOH Engineer Marc Carolan with Snow Patrol and Ian Laughton FOH for Florence & the Machine.

Also touring their own PRO2C and PRO2 consoles are Noel Gallagher's Flying Birds' FOH and monitors engineers Antony King and Nahuel Gutierrez respectively.
