George Gallivan fromBA (Hons) Popular Music Productionsays, “Over the course of the weekend we shadow monitored front of house and back line engineers on The Dogtooth and Kerrang! stage, and we assisted the crew with changeovers and patching different bands setups in during changeover, moving different bit of kit around for them, miking up all the stage setup and running cables and mics back and forth. We worked under stage managers Nick Davies and Richard Knowles.”
