Chagstock 2014

Friday 18th & Saturday 19th July 2014

Chagstock 2014 marks the 8th year of Matrix Productions providing staging, sound and lighting systems to the Main Stage and the Marquee Stage.

For the 3rd year in a row the festival completely sold out – that’s 5000 people on site and a truly remarkable weekend.

Headlining the main stage on the Saturday this year were the amazing Waterboys.  Also on the main stage were Babyhead, New Crisis in their largest and strongest lineup yet, Flight Brigade, Ward Thomas, Tantz and local battle of the bands winners Downfall. The organisers took the decision to run the main stage also on the Friday this year too as it had worked so well for 2013 – headlining were Lightning Seeds, with support from The Selector, Talisman & Flipron.

Equipment used on the Main Stage was a d&b Audiotechnik Q1 Line Array, with Q-Subs and B2′s, Q7′s for infill and M4 monitors on stage. Mixers were a Digico SD8 FOH, and a Yamaha M7CL-48 on stage.

Headlining the Marquee Stage this year was Sheelanagig on the Friday night and The Moulettes on the Saturday night. Also playing on this stage were Sam Green & The Midnight Heist, Steve Knightley, Bridie Jackson & The Arbour, Forgery Lit and Bare Knuckle Parade.

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.

We were also tasked again this year with assisting with the noise management plan. Fundamental to the licence for the event is the overall compliance with local Environmental Health limits.  We helped with the monitor and compliance with the limits imposed upon us for the event, to ensure the festival’s future.
