A total of five SmarTmasts will be provided by Summit Steel, who invested in an additional five of these versatile rigging towers in order to service the event. One SmarTmast will be positioned either side of the stage to fly the main PA system, while the remaining three will provide delay towers. Interestingly, the two PA SmarTmasts will be firmly anchored in the lake in front of the stage. Adapted to hang the V-dosc sound system provided by RG Jones, the SmarTmasts will be suitably ballasted to cope with the unusual weight distribution of hanging a line array PA. The self-climbing SmarTmast is ideally suited to such an event. "With one of the smallest footprints around it keeps blindspots to a minimum," says Summit’s director and SmarTmast developer Jon Bray.The Concert programme which runs from 7 July until September 1 includes ‘Lesley Garrett in Concert’, ‘Classic fm - Live in the Park’, and a ‘Russian Spectacular’.

Summit Steel’s award-winning SmarTmast system will be much in evidence at this year’s 50th Anniversary ‘Music on a Summer Evening’ concerts at Kenwood House, one of the historic properties in the care of English Heritage. Founded in 1951 by Frank Wright after a visit to the Hollywood Bowl, the first concert featured a performance by the London Symphony Orchestra, who are welcomed back this year as part of the celebrations.
