Saturday 6th June 2015 – Alpha Entertainments provided a large PA System, lighting effects, haze and sound engineer to the official Kiddstock Festival 2015 Warm Up Boat Party.
The event consisted of party revellers boarding The Shields Ferry at Newcastle’s Quayside (opposite Pitcher & Piano) where they partied for approximately 4 hours whilst the boat sailed up the River Tyne, turning around at the mouth of the Tyne before sailing back to the Quayside, a peaceful journey for most however inside the boat attendees were partying the evening away as DJ’s such as KRM, Reklus , Dr Hill and Alex Kidd took to the decks (the DJ ones, not the boat decks!).
Lighting on the ferry is very limited due to power and space constrictions. Installed for this event were 2x high-powered LED par cans for uplight effect, 3x moving-mirror scanners and 2x laser effects with a QTX HX-3 haze machine giving the beams of light an extra dimension!
