Capital’s Summertime Ball 2015
Global put on massive event, and nothing compares to Capital’s Summertime Ball. It is one of the things I enjoyed working on the most when I was Head of Production at Capital. The sheer size, scale and sex appeal of the entire event is astonishing.
My favourite bit though? Making the Show Opener to play to 80,000+ people at Wembley Stadium.
Around the time I chucked this video up on Instagram, with a quick scroll through the Pro Tools session, a shot of Waves PAZ Frequency Analyser (keep that bass in check) and a shot of it playing on the big screens.
It’ll be another massive event this year, with another great opener – it’s a tough one to mix because it’s in such an open air environment at such a high volume. Getting a great mix on something like this is such a great challenge, I can’t wait to hear the 2016 one.
In the meantime, to whet your appetite here’s my last ever one from 2015. Because of the screen layout’s at the Summertime Ball, this video formats slightly strangely – but you’ll get the idea, and be able to hear the mix! Check it out:
