Festival Season for Wholehog II

26th August 1997

With the festival season across Europe now running at full speed, the Wholehog II lighting control console has been enjoying a little more fresh air of late. The lighting equipment for the main stage at Glastonbury festival in the UK was supplied by Neg Earth Lights who, as part of the system supplied two Wholehog II's complete with expansion wings for control.

In Scandinavia, the massive Danish festivals at Roskilde and Midt-Fyns were fitted out with their lighting equipment by Pan & Tilt of Denmark, who, once again, supplied multiple Wholehog II's, this time complete with WYSIWYG programming facilities for both festival sites. Pan and Tilt also supplied what is probably the most beautiful festival in the world, at Skandeborg in Denmark, where the forested location even boasts a tree rising through one of the main stages and again two Wholehog II's were in control of both of these stages. Belgian rental company EML were the main lighting contractor at Torhout festival, the largest festival in Belgium, and again a Wholehog II was on site for control. TLC, of Germany, used their Wholehog II and expansion wing for control at the main stage of the 40,000 person capacity Bizarre festival in Cologne. Further north in Finland, Eastway Sound and Lighting supplied a Wholehog II for the Ilosaari Rock festival, whilst back on British soil again, Neg Earth Lights made their presence felt even stronger by supplying Wholehog II consoles and expansion wings to Phoenix festival, Reading festival and no less than four Wholehog II consoles to the V97 festival.

One thing seems to be for sure, if you're heading anywhere near a festival site this year, you'd better watch out for those flying pigs!
