I’ve been an audio technician for the past 20 years and have worked every kind of gig imaginable. Most of the shows that I work on are indoors in a sound booth but somedays we will have an outdoor concert or presentation. Getting my gear to the right places can be a hassle but the real trouble is always standing in the blaring heat while watching over the sound board.
After one too many sunburns, I decided to get myself a pop-up shade tent and I haven’t looked back. My tent is pretty compact but it still covers a good area which keeps me, and a lot of my equipment, cool. Not to mention the fact that this thing weighs absolutely nothing compared to my other gear and throwing it on top of the stacks is easy. I love this thing and I won’t be the butt of any more “redneck” jokes from the other guys. I call that a win-win.
