Chagstock 2012 marks the 6th year of Matrix Productions providing staging, sound and lighting systems to the Main Stage and the Marquee Stage.

Few would have believed only a few weeks ago that for the whole weekend the sun would be beating down on the Dartmoor site without a drop of rain, but despite the odds this is exactly what happened.  2012 also marks the first year the festival has sold out.  With 5000 people on site it truly was a remarkable weekend.

Headlining the main stage this year were the fantastic Fun Lovin’ Criminals, who put on a great show and thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Devon. Also on the main stage were Seth Lakeman, New Crisis, Mad Dog McRea, The Martin Harley Band, Big Boy Bloater and These Reigning Days.

Equipment used on the Main Stage was a d&b Audiotechnik Q1 Line Array, with J-Subs and B2’s, Q7’s for infill and M4 monitors on stage. Mixers were a Soundcraft Vi6 FOH, and a Yamaha M7CL-48 on stage.

Headlining the Marquee Stage this year was KT Tunstall on the Friday night, and Alabama 3 on the Saturday night. Also playing on this stage were Ruarri Joseph, Kate McGill, Ellen & The Escapades, Emily & The Woods,  Juan Zelada,  The Travelling Band, The Monkey Gland Blues Band, Cosmo Jarvis and Slipdown Dog.

Equipment used on the Marquee Stage was a KV2 ES System, with L-Acoustics 12XT monitors.  Mixers were Allen & Heath iLive’s FOH and on stage.
