Showforce provided Larmac Live with crew for 12 days, covering the build, show days and de-rig of Sonisphere Festival. The team included a crew chief and forklift driver (who were onsite every day) and stage hands for backline and changeovers during show days on the Apollo, Saturn, Bohemia and Satellite stages.

In addition Larmac Live used Showforce stage hands to work specifically with PRG, Brit Row, XL Video and STS Touring for the load in and load out of the lighting, sound, video and backline equipment for the festival.

Showforce’s stage hands also played a vital role in the backline changes for the headline acts – The Prodigy (Friday 4th July), Iron Maiden (Saturday 5th July) and Metallica (Sunday 6th July). Showforce also provided 5 follow spot operators for the Iron Maiden set on the Saturday.

Larmac Live call upon us on a regular basis for a variety of their projects, in fact the same weekend as Sonisphere we also supplied crew to them for the Love Supreme Jazz Festival. Working on a festival of this size, with a number of different stages and a variety of artists is a highly pressurized environment and we pride ourselves on having experienced crew who know exactly what is expected of them in that situation. We believe we were selected by Larmac Live for our ability to provide a quality service and deliver efficient turnarounds. Our people are highly professional and have an array of experience which makes them an asset to any team onsite. We ensure that everyone has an excellent work ethic and pleasant, easy going natures, ensuring they fit seamlessly into any situation.
