Summer in Southside 2019 produced by The Birmingham Hippodrome, went all Intergalactic this year with their free family festival which gave people the opportunity to explore the spectacle and wonders of outer space.
The theme celebrates 50 years since the first moon landings. The streets around the hippodrome were transformed into a lunar landscape where a whole weekend was packed with different activities.
The fun continued with performances from roaming actors as intergalactic aliens, there were I-Puppets and wonderful performances from Motionhouse Gravity as they explored weightlessness.
For several years now dBS Solutions have been supplying production to the event. This year we provided several PA systems including one Martin Audio XD15 and WS218x system for one of the main spaces in the Arcadian. The dBS Solutions team were on hand throughout the weekend to look after the acts, and ensure the stages ran smoothly. We provided lighting for the stage along with some smaller audio systems for elsewhere in the streets surrounding the Hippodrome. This year we were quite lucky with the weather and the weekend was as always a great success. Big thanks to Sam, James P and James M for their hard work.
