Although Pink Floyd used WEM columns early on (and Britannia Row Productions was an offshoot of Floyd's production) , Charlie "bowed out" of the festival scene six years before.

None of the WEM designs I have come across look like this Judas Priest PA .

My guess is TASCO mostly because the other obvious suspects are taken.

I think Tasco was using the Harwell system by then, a much different looking set of cabinets.
I was probably wrong about Britannia Row, as they were using Altec Manta Ray horns, not the JBL stuff pictured.

Hey Guys,
The Harwell rig for Judas Priest wasn't until 1980 Europe "Down to Earth" tour.
I think the pictures show the Bill Kelsey derived PA, Probably Europa Concert Sound (ECS).

cheers
