Adlib, an event technical service company, provided full production for the 2019 Glasgow Summer Sessions in Bellahouston Park from 16-25 August.
The project was coordinated from Glasgow’s Scottish Office by Chris Neary and Craig Hamilton who created the productions visual and audio design, which facilitated the headliner’s own productions.
Overall, Adlib supplied lighting, audio, rigging and video which included LED screens and cameras to headliners such as The Cure, Foo Fighters and The 1975.
For The Cure, Adlib provided a 4-truss ‘house’ rig. The Foo Fighters and The 1975 installed their own video and lighting specials packages ‘underneath’ Adlib’s house system.
For lighting, Adlib installed over 70 moving lights, a combination of Martin MAC Viper Washes and Profiles, and Claypaky Mythos hybrids that were used for beams and effects. Additionally, 20 GLP Lighting JDC-1 LED strobes were used.
The headliners provided their own video elements, while Adlib supplied the left and right six-metre-wide by eight-metre-high portrait IMAG screens for optimal crowd viewing. Adlib’s camera package included three Sony HXC-100 broadcast units and four Marshall Minicams for placement on the drums and keys.
Adlib’s audio consisted of a ‘classic’ L-Acoustics system and a mix of 36 x L-Acoustics KS28 subs which were arranged across the width of the stage for an even sound coverage. Adlib also provided 16 MP5 wedges for the headliners who were using the house monitor system.
