Q&A with Iain, Technical Production Manager

We’re turning the lens on some of the brilliant and highly-skilled professionals behind the scenes at Standon Calling festival. 

Turning a festival dream into a reality each year, you simply wouldn’t have the festival you know and love without them. 

Please meet Iain, our Technical Production Manager. Iain is responsible for the crisp sound and stunning visual production that you see across all Standon Calling stages.

1. Please introduce yourself and tell us about your role at Standon Calling. 

Hi I’m Iain Mackie and I am the technical production manager at Standon Calling. This involves advancing the show with the artists and their staff so the technical equipment and stages they require are on site when they arrive.

I am also responsible for the audio, lighting and video design as well as all the little bits of technology required that make the event special. I have been in the industry for more years than I care to remember.

2. What’s the best bit about your job?

The best bit about the job is probably hanging out with my team and the other departments on site, many have been doing Standon for over a decade and its always a joy to catch up and see how everyones year has been.

3. What do you love most about festivals?

I got in to festivals because I love music, my favourite bit of the job is seeing new bands I’d never heard of and new music I would not have been exposed to.

4. Tell us, what’s special about Standon Calling?

The people are what makes Standon special.

Thank you Iain! Standon just wouldn’t be the same without you.
