Slam Dunk Festival 2015 Is Powering Up

Initially a small scale festival with only a handful of artists, the Slam Dunk Festival has grown in recent years to a weekend-long punk and metal music celebration, with over 40 bands playing on multiple stages.

Slam Dunk Fest 2015 is almost here, with details, both technical and entertaining, already set in place. People come from all over England to listen and rock out with their friends, although many people don’t realize the enormous technical feat that is needed to bring everything together.

The festival wouldn’t be the same without the dramatic lighting illuminating the stage and musicians, the multiple speakers belting out the sound, and the technical crew that keeps everything running as it should and correcting any mishaps from ruining the excitement.

Slam Dunk Festival 2015 Is Powering Up

How Is Slam Dunk Fest Made Possible?

The power experts at the Templant Group will be making the festivities possible, at the Forum, Hertfordshire at the University at Herts. In order to create the kind of atmosphere Slam Dunk Fest is now famous for, they will be supplying power generators that range in voltage from 20kva to 300kva, with 10 generators supplying the fest.

The Templant Group is the most trusted source of reliable power that will keep the music blaring all night long. They will also be bringing in additional fuel tanks to ensure power never runs out, lighting towers for night time visibility, as well as cabling and crew distribution to get everything set up in a timely fashion.

The skilled drivers behind the power engineers will be bringing all of the equipment in on Templant’s 3 lorry trucks and trailer loads, all including hiab cranes.

How Does The Technical Stuff Affect The Music?

Before the musicians plug in their guitars and practicing their songs, all of the details backstage need to be set up properly and ready to go. The popular, three-day festival wouldn’t be the same if it weren’t for the right equipment. The right speakers and adequate lighting bring the music to life, and wouldn’t be possible without the expert crew that spends hour connecting cables, making sure everything runs seamlessly.
