Chagstock 2015

Friday 17th & Saturday 18th July 2015

Chagstock 2015 marked the 9th year of Matrix Productions providing staging, sound and lighting systems to the Main Stage and the Marquee Stage.

For the 4th 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 Levellers. Also on the main stage were Seth Lakeman, New Crisis in their largest and strongest lineup yet, Electric Swing Circus, Dojo, Backbeat Soundsystem and Faustus MD. Friday night on the main stage saw performances from New Model Army, Neville Staple Band, Martha Tilston (returning to Chagstock) and the Roving Crows.

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 Midas Pro2C at FOH, and a Midas Pro2 on stage.

Headlining the Marquee Stage this year was Mad Dog McRae on the Friday night and Molotov Jukebox on the Saturday night. Also playing on this stage were Rusty Shackle, Police Dog Hogan, Kecia, Rosie & The Goldbug, Gaz Brookfield, Ciaran Lavery & The Eskies.

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.
