UK - Celebrating some of the finest music and artists from the 80s, Rewind festival takes place over three weekends each summer.
Starting in Scotland at Scone Palace, near Perth, then moving on to Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire, and with the final weekend at Henley, the festival includes performances from a variety of eighties superstars including Human League, Nik Kershaw, Go West, Level 42, Kim Wilde, the British Electric Foundation, and the Trevor Horn Band.
PRG provides support to production manager, Keith Morris, lighting designer, Martin Nicholas, and video content director, Miguel Riberio, supplying lighting and video technology, and experienced technical crew for all three weekends. Unlike many festivals which take place over a single weekend, sometimes in dual locations, Rewind is a ‘touring’ festival, taking the same production package to different sites over several weeks.
As well as the main stage, the site includes a silent disco, tribute band tent, funfair, and even an inflatable wedding chapel! For the production, PRG XL Video’s senior account manager, Paul McCauley, supplied three large LED screens, plus cameras and PPU system for IMAG. The rear upstage LED wall formed the backdrop to the stage, and two large portrait screens were flown one either side of the stage.
Ian Jones oversaw the video crew on site, which, for the Scottish show, consisted of Chris Johnson, Mark Eisen, Steve Wood, and Fabrizio DiLelio looking after LED, and Rod Williams on cameras. Mark, Steve, and Fabrizio also doubled as cameramen over the weekend.
