Right so a mate of mine asked me to go and dep with his covers band. Yea, cool, no worries.
Set list? Check, no worries. Pretty much all new to me but no major dramas.
Can I go to a couple of rehearsals? No probs.
First one this evening and so far so good. A little polishing to do but no dramas.
Conversation turns to the gig and it turns out its for an audience of 4000 if the weather is good. I am now officially bricking it. We set up about 20 mins before start, no sound check other than strum a couple of chords and no clue about back line etc.
So can I ask for advice on rocking up, setting up, playing a festival, with unknown pa and sound engineer please. It's my biggest gig and I am used to a somewhat smaller approach!
