Wholehogs 'Hog' Big Weekend

Wholehog III - Radio 1 Big WeekendWholehog consoles were at the controls for all performances during the Radio 1’s Big Weekend. The 2-day festival featured 3 stages of acts, broadcast live on radio and TV May 19-20 from Moor Park, Preston, UK.

LD Paul Normandale designed the entire production, specifying a Wholehog 3 console with Expansion Wing for the Main Stage 1 (with lighting director Glen Johnson), Hog iPC console with Wing for Stage 2 (lighting director Matt Arthur) and Hog iPC for Stage 3 (lighting director Alex Johnson).

Lighting director Glen Johnson, who handled the main stage with Normandale, says the Wholehog products were “absolutely brilliant. The consoles ran 9 hours a day doing live broadcasts and were 100 percent reliable. The Wholehog 3 Expansion Wing is rockin’! I love how you could see the cue list clearly, compared to the old Wholehog 2 Expansion Wing. In fact, we’re looking at buying two Expansion Wings now.”

Lite Alternative UK provided all the production. Acts included Kaiser Chiefs, Stereophonics, Razorlight, Scissor Sisters, Bloc Party, The Fray, Kasabian, The View and many more.
