Music In The Fields – KingsStock 2011

This past weekend I’ve been at KingsStock.

KingsStock is a micro music event held deep in the countryside of rural Cambridgeshire and aims to promote young and upcoming bands who take inspiration from their Faith.

In the lead up to KingsStock I’ve been updating the website with the line up and also promoting the festival using Twitter and Facebook. On the Thursday, the Main Stage went up on site and I was able to produce an amazing time lapse of the construction and is now posted on the KingsStock YouTube page.

It was an amazing weekend! Just to see so many young, talent people perform in front of a lovely crowd of people.

It was planned that the Main Stage performances would be live streamed to the KingsStock website on the Friday and Saturday evenings. There were a few technical issues, lack of internet connection being the main one, on the Friday evening meaning that not much of the evening was broadcast. On Saturday, fortunately I was able to broadcast a lot more of the proceedings, which not too much interruption. On the Saturday evening I also compered the Main Stage.

The official(ish) count of visitors on the Saturday evening (the main event) was about 186. It was a great turn out.

As part of the promotion, we were contacted by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and they asked that our organiser, James Stevens, went on their Sunday Breakfast Show (which focused on Faith topics). James was on air about 7:40am, after not much sleep. You can listen to the interview on the KingsStock Press page.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting photos and videos to the KingsStock website, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
