Case Study:

NASS Festival 2019.


NASS Festival is a four-day festival of music, street art, skate & BMX held at the Royal Bath & West Showground outside Shepton Mallet in the south west of England.

The festival features various stages of UK undergroud music, tons of street art around the site plus skate and BMX competitions which range from begineer all the way to professional. The festival attracts over 15,000 attendees across the four days.

This year we were tasked with providing PA, lighting, and techs across two of the bigger outdoor stages on-site; Sika Studio’s (which we have had the pleasure of doing previously) and a new stage for us, Fatty’s Yard.

What we did.

For the Sika Studio’s stage: we provided a full package of PA, lighting, backline and techs which included the full Electrikal Sound System, split in to two large stacks, a load of lighting across the stage, full back-line and monitor systems plus an enginner for the weekend. The stage ran from 11 – 11 each day of the festival and featured a whole host of different performers and MC’s through-out the four days.


For Fatty’s Yard: we provided a similar turn-key package, which included two stacks of Danley Sound System (8 x TH118’s and 2 x SH96’s), on-stage lighting, festoon site lighting, full back-line and monitor systems plus lighting and sound engineers for the whole weekend. This stage also ran from 11 – 11 each day of the festival.


The festival went by without any massive hitches and we set-up and de-rigged both stages in record time


All the staff at Fatty’s Yard said that the Danley system sounded beautiful and that the system was a massive upgrade from the previous supplier. The person running the stage was also very happy with our performance and grateful for the extra stage management services we provided when one of their staff didn’t turn up for their shift.


There was also a shortage of 16AMP cable lengths on site which we were, luckily, able to procure last minute from a local supplier who we have a close relationship with.
