A brand new type of festival came to Chester in the form of Deva Fest; with full production proudly provided by DD Music Group.
Called "Deva Fest" after the Roman name for Chester (Deva), this brand new family festival set out to be different from the start. With value in mind the organisers had gone to town with nothing left on the table to give festival goers an incredible weekend.
With three days of incredible music, a free fairground and a plethora of activities around the site including roman gladiators fighting, fire dancing, carnival parades and more... There was something for everyone. The festival even had a free bus service to get back and forth to Chester railway station!
Headline artists included; "I love it when you call" rockers The Feeling, Big band Jazz extraordinaire Zoot Series, and the world renowned Symphonic Ibiza live orchestra.
We had a blast providing our complete production services to this extremely successful event; working with our brand partners we provided an impressive 10m stage to fill the giant big top as well as full lighting and audio production.
This festival saw the debut of our brand new festival comms system with our on site network which has three independent forms of communication; Text based comms, Hard wired shout system and a custom scripted Q-Lab cue light system. The systems worked perfectly and all three in tandem provided a great way of communicating in different situations.
