Sound and DJing at The Floating World

Whew! That was a lot of work but it was worth it! It was one big single system so I did the whole thing live :) Sets started during the day and went to 4am on Friday and Sat and ended at 2am on Sun. Daytime music was quieter and more background and the nighttime sets were broken down into arcs so I could keep sane. Since there was 1200 people of all ages and tastes I needed to spin a wide range of tracks. Longest continuous set was 11 hours, good thing the bathroom was close to the decks!

Recap:

11 speakers
1000' of XLR cable
300yds of Gaffer Tape
300' of speaker cable
120,000sq-ft venue
1200 people
30+ hours of DJing
10 hours of setup/teardown
10 hours of driving
Not Enough Sleep!

I'm just going to be amazed that you managed to keep your brain functioning enough to write your set lists down.
