Download Festival's Avalanche Stage, hosted by Kerrang! Radio, was graced by an array of acts over the weekend such as Busted and Wheatus - all lit by a rig controlled by grandMA3.

Supplied by Zig Zag Lighting, the stage 3 rig was designed by Neil Hunt, with John Richardson as lighting designer and MA3 programmer, plus Shaun Moore and Gareth Lonsdale as techs and Tom Rawlinson as crew chief.

The main desk – a grandMA3 full-size – was run in mode 3, with a grandMA3 light as backup running in both mode 2 and 3 throughout the weekend.

Friday’s headliner Busted featured lighting design by LD Dan Williams, who made great use of the Recipes feature in mode 3 to light up the band.

Ambersphere and Ayrton were thrilled to attend the festival and to support suppliers and designers across the site!
