Hi guys, Mike from <i>What They Could...</i> here
As you may know we're going to be in the Forest exhibiting from 5th to 11th August, setting up from some time on the 2nd. I'm handling a lot of the technical requirements on our part for the week, especially audio stuff. This is just a query about amplifying stuff, and mostly concerning the upstairs space.
Last year we were in the cafe only, but this year we're taking up the upstairs space too, and in addition to your PA I will bring our small PA (2x400w with two cabs). What I need help with is figuring out the best distribution of these resources - will my PA handle upstairs, or should we try to move some of your rig up there? Will you be hiring anything for the festival period? Have you run that space in previous years?
My PA handled a similar sized space as the upstairs quite well recently, but we could have done better. Obviously neither you guys nor us would ideally want to hire any more, but I wonder if we might need to?
Any thoughts would be most appreciated, all the best and can't wait to be there!
