Working with the Cambridge Live Trust and their Production Manager, Andrew Keightly, PRG XL Video has continued its long-running relationship with the Cambridge Folk Festival.

Each year the festival takes place in Cherry Hinton, Cambridge UK, and attracts the very best folk music artists from around the world. The festival site includes a range of stages arranged around a central area where many audience members choose to sit.

This year the main stage tent saw performances from artists including Christy Moore, Gogol Bordello, Imelda May, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Glen Hansard. Ensuring the audiences had a great view of the main stage performances, two LED screens, each 3.6 x 2.4 metres, were located either side of the entrance to the tent.

PRG XL Video Senior Account Manager, Paul Wood, specified ROE Visual MC-7T Blackface LED for the screens. The product is IP65 rated, rigged in the company’s custom touring frames, and the resolution is high. It not only gives a great view of proceedings for everyone outside of the Main stage marquee, but also looks great on television broadcasts. Highlights of the festival were recently broadcast on Sky Arts.

Paul Wood comments: “We’re very happy to once again support the Cambridge Folk Festival with IMAG screens for the main stage. It’s great to work with Andrew Keightly and the Cambridge Live Trust as the festival grows in popularity every year!”
