What we’ve done in Event Management

Hot Since 82, Powerscourt, Mar 2014

This was the 2nd gig we worked on in Powerscourt for this client. It really is a special venue and these types of gigs look spectacular in there.

The lads from The Abstract Agency brought Hot Since 82 to Powerscourt for a St. Patrick's weekend gig and it sold out in record time. 

Having worked on their New Years Eve gig with Leftfield in the same venue, we were delighted to help them run this one too. 

1000 people danced their hearts out and the atmosphere in there was electric. 

The general gist of it

  • 1000 happy punters
  • 1 epic DJ set
  • 1 giant LED wall
  • 2 rooms
  • 1 1st floor DJ box
  • Loads of moving heads

Why we loved this one

We love this space. 

We love how great gigs look in there with top notch production and a crowd who are really into it. 

The guys in Session Hire always make the gig look and sound great and the lads in Abstract have a great feel for the acts that will suit it best and fill the venue. 

Some of the challenges

The challenge with this one was the turnaround time. 

With Powerscourt fully operational as a shopping centre up until a few hours before we opened doors on the gig, the time we had to put all the production in and get things ready was short. 

Still, the team got it done and all went fantastically well on the night.
