Festivals a re not simple events to pull off and require serious planning by the system techs. From the many meetings that must be held, to the kinds of discussions needed to make a festival happen, plans, site drawings and using EASE Focus to run simulations of what is needed in a festival sound system, and predict as far as possible how it will behave on site. These tools are essential for planning, especially with the type pf noise restrictions one has to work within these days.

The Unit A/Unit B “flip-flop” system as applied on most main stages is also discussed, as well as the thought process behind decisions about specific PA for each stage, and flying the system.
