Dartmoor Folk Festival 2015

The 38th annual Dartmoor Folk Festival took place in the beautiful setting of South Zeal, near Okehampton. The event has become revered by both those who live locally, and folk fans from all over Great Britain. 2015 saw headline performances from Jex Lowe and the Bad Pennies, Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, and The Dovetail Trio.

Set in the most inviting of green spaces deep in the heart of Devon’s Dartmoor National Park, the event hosts a variety of musical acts, entertainer performances, workshops, and competitions. Famously, the Dartmoor Stepdance and Broomdance championships are held over the weekend – and naturally Morris sides from all over the region were also in attendance.

dB Production Services has close links with the village of South Zeal, and as such we were pleased to be invited back to provide various technical services and production packages to the festival. Popular with campers, the event required a campsite generator and accompanying floodlighting to ensure the safety and comfort of those spending the night under canvas. Furthemore, we supplied full venue production across multiple stages, with PA equipment, stage lighting, and truss installed into both marquees and existing buildings.
