UK - This summer, Creative Technology worked on a multitude of the UK’s largest and most popular major outdoor music events and festivals.
May marked the start of festival season for Creative Technology’s audio team with the return of The Great Escape Festival, followed by BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Coventry, delivering LED main screens along with LED columns and a DJ Riser.
June’s highlights included Liam Gallagher - Knebworth Park, where CT provided large I-mag screens and a control package for the singer’s largest solo gig to date – twenty-six years on from his show as part of Oasis back in 1996 where CT supplied LED screens, OB vans and cameras.
The audio team headed to Red Rooster Festival in the heart of Suffolk, while the video team prepared for the British-created rock festival, Download, where I-mags and FOH screens were supplied – shortly followed by the long-awaited return of Glastonbury. Creative Technology supported three of the famed festival’s main stages including the Pyramid Stage. On top of this, CT also supplied 30k laser projectors and media servers for the IICON Stage, creating a visual spectacular that successfully entertained the large crowds that gathered there night after night.
Shortly after, CT headed to Marlay Park in Dublin to deliver three gigs; Green Day, Guns N' Roses, and Red Hot Chili Peppers – providing curved LED screens, playback and camera package to the sold-out shows that had been on hold for three years, with eager fans elated to be back enjoying live music once again.
July started with Longitude Festival taking place in Dublin while simultaneously the first of three Wireless Festivals happened in Crystal Palace Park, followed by the Finsbury Park and NEC, Birmingham events later in the month.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra took to the same stage in Crystal Palace Park to deliver Music From The Movies – where the audience could experience all their film favourites in an outdoor setting.
CT were back for a third time to deliver the First Major League Baseball Home Run Derby X – an electrifying new baseball format complete with amazing live music and interactive baseball-inspired activities.
CT returned to Finsbury Park for three consecutive one-off shows: Sam Fender, Community Festival, and George Ezra. To round up this month, CT supplied audio and video for both the main and BBC Sounds stage at Latitude Festival in Henham Park, Suffolk.
August brought the audio team to Wilderness Festival, followed by the Reading and Leeds festivals that took place simultaneously later in the month. Once again showcasing a large-scale audio delivery and the huge curved I-mags across four main stages, providing a total of over 1850 sqm of LED to create four identical stages across two festival sites.
September wrapped up the festival season for CT, on-site in Ireland at Electric Picnic – providing a full package of LED including curved I-mags, Upstage, and FOH as well as cameras to capture all the talent on stage.
“I could not be more proud of what we have collectively achieved during this festival season,” says Graham Miller, head of music/entertainment at Creative Technology UK. “A tremendous amount of hard work, early mornings, and late nights went into delivering these incredible events and none of them would have been possible without the people behind the technology. Thank you to the dedicated team at CT, our skilled freelancers, and our clients who trust us to bring to life the best live outdoor music events year after year.”
