Wow, where do you start on all of that?

Certainly is an "interesting" design.  Laughing

Hiya Mike

Yeah, I have my suspicions on who did this stuff.
Brian Wynn or John Horvath can probably shed some light on the real story behind this ...mess.

Next time you're in town let me know.
The GF likes to cook.


ETA: John nor Brian have NOTHING to do with this crap.
Sorry guys, didn't mean to imply you build bad shows ...I know better.

Wow, what an incredible photoshop job!...cause that surely can't be real.  Twisted Evil

Uhhhhh......just how do you lower the roof in the event of thunderstorm winds?  A ripcord maybe Confused   With stuff like this there might be a market for roll cages in monitor land.  And what the heck was the deal with the c-clamp on the truss.  Could'nt they get a bolt through one set of holes?

WOW^∞

In the UK, an event like that would have attracted a visit from the local council(USA speak: town/city council) and a fire officer. I am sure that it would never have been allowed to start.

There seems to have been a number of these type of posts over the last year. I have a feeling that you might be heading for a whole set of federal and local legislation.

This link goes to a list of suggested reading and laws/guidance for UK event organisers. It is 4 years old and there are a number of significant additions since it was written.

This link is a sample of a UK tented structure manfacturers introductory guidance.

If you provided structures in the UK you would have a copy of the ISE Guide to Temporary Demountable Structures.

Iain.

The guidelines set by the UK and other EU countries are the very reason why I am SOOOOOOOOOOO happy to be on my way there on Aug 10th. I have 3 more shows in the states, 1 of which I feel good about in Ventura next week. The other 2, well, we shall see.

Say hi to my merch girl when you see her today. For me, I'll be checking out some real production at Lollapalooza. I've seen Warped Tour enough to last me a lifetime. I've only seen Rage about 6 times. Smile

I'm glad we made it through the show without the stage collapsing. Seriously.  Evil or Very Mad

(They) didn't use any pads under the scaff or the stage legs. If you look at the pictures under the stage you will see that the legs are sunk about 6" in the mud and the whole upstage is pitched about 15 degrees. Shocked

I had to get (after bitching about it for an hour) wood pallet skids to stand on @ FOH.

Fun.  Rolling Eyes

I hereby cast a vote to make this a sticky thread of what NOT to do... People need to see this, and unfortunately I see stuff like this more often than not around my part of the country. No I am not part of it either.
