Gravity stands attract attention at Bluetone festival 2016
The Sportfreunde Stiller, Seiler und Speer, Anastacia: The Bluetone festival attracted over 18,000 visitors to Straubing, Germany, this year. Additionally to the national and international stars a detail on stage attracted attention: the stands from Gravity®, an Adam Hall Group brand.
On all six days of the festival, which was founded in 1987, the stands provided solid stability for the artists’ shows – and additionally added stylish highlights to the stage. Tobias Lange, Bluetone production manager and Managing Director of PM Systemhaus: “We already opted for Gravity® stands for the Gregory Porter tour as well as the Jazz Baltica festival. They immediately convinced us with their handling and stability.”
The PM Systemhaus team was responsible for the production of the Bluetone festival together with the local rental company StereoMike. “The musician’s feedback regarding the stands was excellent”, says StereoMike boss Michael Wittenzellner.
According to Wittenzellner, several artists responded favourably regarding the pleasant touch and stylish design of the stands, which have recently been nominated for the German Design Award. The work was also very comfortable for the stage crew due to the coloured “G-Rings”. Michael Wittenzellner: “Thanks to the colour coding system, we were able to individually assign stands for respective tasks – a small detail, which makes our work a lot easier.”
