Rockin the Bowl ‘Forged In Steel’ was the first major rock show to be held at the Don Valley Bowl in Sheffield since the 1990’s. Part of the reason for holding the show was to bring back the once prevalent rock scene in Sheffield. Def Leppard, Terrorvision, Thunder, Ugly Kid Joe and the Rolling Stones all played the outdoor arena in the 1990’s. The Wildhearts would be the first major act to play the venue in 20 years.
When EES Showhire met with the festival organisers for the first time, only the headline artist had been booked and their technical specifications led early discussions around what equipment would be required for the show. EES Showhire sourced everything required for production purposes on the main stage and much for the second stage too. Equipment we sourced included a large high quality demountable stage, full light show, all the PA including mixing consoles and microphones, all the power and distribution and engineers to run the show.
Following the hugely successful 2019 event, the next show will be an even bigger event with EES Showhire being responsible for production on both the main stage and second stage.
Danny McCormack from The Wildhearts commented on Twitter… “We had a blast in Sheffield Rockin The Bowl gig. The festival should go on to bigger things. The staff and crew were mega.”
Rock Media Uk said “…. the set out of the festival grounds was excellent with every taste and requirement seemingly catered for. …put simply it was a fantastic day out with some great performances run by great people.”
