Adlib at 2019 Glasgow Summer Sessions
Adlib supplied full production – lighting, video including LED screens and cameras, audio and rigging – to DF Concerts for the 2019 Glasgow Summer Sessions in Bellahouston Park. Adlib provided The Cure’s 4-truss ‘house’ rig, with both Foo Fighters and The 1975 installing their own video and lighting specials packages with the house system. Adlib’s four LX trusses and one backdrop truss were installed beneath the 22- metre wide Serious stage and roof structure which was similar to the one they had worked with for the TRNSMT Festival a few weeks earlier. Over 70 moving lights were utilized, a combination of Martin MAC Viper Washes/ Profiles, Claypaky Mythos hybrids that were great for beams and effects, 20 GLP JDC-1 LED strobes, and 40 blinders – a mix of 2-lites and 4-lites—great for white-outs.
All the headliners brought their own onstage video elements, while Adlib supplied the left-and-right 6-metre-wide by 8-metre high portrait IMAG screens, made up from their Unilumin Upad II H05 5.9mm product. A ‘classic’ L-Acoustics system design was implemented for the event. A mix of K1, K2 made up the main and side left-and-right hangs with a combination of 24 K1 and 24 K2. KARA was used for all the necessary infills, outfills and lip fills. The 36 KS28 subs were arrayed across the width of the stage for even coverage. Four delay hangs were made up from 24 K2 speakers. The ‘house’ consoles were DiGiCo SD12s for both FOH and monitors – with five supplied in total including a spare system. All of the headliner’s stage systems were self-contained, and several other bands brought in some sort of audio package, many with their own IEM systems, all of which were accommodated seamlessly by Adlib’s efficient crew. Sixteen Adlib MP5 wedges were available for those using the house monitor system.
