Avolites at Glastonbury 2005

Avolites once again proved it was the most popular festival console of choice at Glastonbury, with numerous desks used to run lighting in a huge variety of areas across the site.

On the Acoustic stage, two Diamond 4 Elites were used by LD Rob Sangwell and programmed by Gary Churchill.  The Acoustic stage also used Avolites dimming for its conventional fixtures and Avo DMX buffer boxes.

Gary Churchill comments, “The D4 is great. I have used it before a couple of times but here I’ve really had a chance to put the desk through its paces. I like the wide choice of faders and the fact that you can put any playback anywhere you like and have direct access to all the fixtures onstage.” He added that the Elite was also a handy size, and could easily be moved by one person and lifted by two.

Highlights on the Acoustic stage included The Beautiful South, Martha Wainwright, Steve Earle, Alison Moorer, Declan O’Rourke and Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel.

In the Budweiser Crown tent, LD’s Nick Jevons and Phil Winward used an Avolites Pearl 2004 for their stage and tent design.

In the Dance Area, the East Dance Tent featured another Avolites Diamond 4 Elite console. Lighting for both East and West Dance tents was supplied by Colour Sound Experiment, designed by Jasper Johns. 

Operator/programmers in the East Tent were Nathan Matthews and Andy Walton.
Kicking performances abounded including James Lavelle, Timo Maas, Darren Emerson, Freestylers, the Chemical Brothers and oodles more. 

Other Avolites Glasto 2005 hot-spots included the Leftfield Tent, which featured a Sapphire; LD’d by James Thompson and Jaz Bhullar from the Astoria, and the Roots Tent where LD Mikey Ray specified another Avo Pearl 2004.
