Our team at Upstage Video are no strangers to festival life and know exactly what’s needed to upgrade a summer music festival for a top-notch experience while staying true to a town’s down-to-earth feel. Our team of production professionals provided LED Systems and an HD camera package for the 2-day event in Telluride, CO. Mark Haney, VP of Concert Touring, worked closely with the festival’s production staff to understand their needs and to enhance the patrons’ experience at the two-day event. A total of six HD cameras and an HD flight pack were used to capture on-stage performances to two 11’ x 18’ ROE 7mm screens flanking both sides of the stage. A 15’ x 30’ CS 16mm blow-throw screen was used as an on-stage backdrop for the festival’s headliners. Additionally, we included interactive platforms with media servers featuring text to screen, and artist content interface.
Organizers from The Ride Fest are known to thoughtfully hand pick musical talents to compliment the venue’s breath-taking mountain views. Set at nearly 9,000’ above sea level, festival goers enjoyed everything from bluesy folk music to rock and roll including performances from Beck, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, The John Butler Trio, Kaleo, Rival Sons and many more.
