Allen & Heath consoles were used to manage sound on two stages at the recent Acoustic Festival of Britain, held in Nantwich, Cheshire, UK. The two-day festival was in its inaugural year and presented a variety of styles, ranging from The Stranglers to The Cheshire Chord Company.

VME, a local P.A. company, selected an Allen & Heath 48-channel ML5000 VCA console for the FOH position and an ML4000 on monitors for the Cheese Tent, which hosted acts including Hayseed Dixie (pictured), Eric Faulkner of the Bay City Rollers, Elkie Brooks, the Del McCoury Band and Ed Tudor Pole.

VME also selected a 32-channel GL2800 console to mix both FOH and monitors in the Octagon Tent, which showcased international artists including Damian Etherington, Blue C, October, Jason Soudah, Red Dirt, Guy Maile, Virginia Haze, Ross Copperman and Jan Graveson.
