Hogs Spread their Festival Wings

3rd September 1998

The Flying Pig Systems Wholehog II has once again been stretching its wings at some of this years festivals. Following hot on the heels of Roskilde festival in Denmark and Glastonbury festival in the UK came Reading festival and the dual venue V98 festival, both in the UK.

Main lighting contractor for V98, which takes place over two days, simultaneously at two separate venues, were London based Neg Earth Lights. Lighting Designers Steve Kellaway and Phil Freeman looked after the main stages at the two venues in Leeds and Chelmsford respectively. The Second stages and Dance tents at both venues were looked after by Lighting Designers Andy Porter, John Shelley, Rob Gawler and Andy Cox, with a total of four Wholehog II consoles with expansion wings being used. Reading festivals main lighting contractor was again, Neg Earth Lights who supplied a substantial rig for the event that took place over the late summer holiday weekend in the UK. Neg Earth's Lighting Designer for this festival was Paul Kell who specified the complete system including, once again, the Wholehog II.

Keeping with that Summer feeling, the Wholehog II was in appearance around the UK with Chris De Burgh at his Summer Picnic Shows. Lighting Designer Patrick Murray was at the helm for the series of outdoor shows which were supplied, once again, by Neg Earth Lights.
