    Default Horror DJ pictures/videos !

    Warning: This thread is only for DJs with steady nerves and propensity for self-flagellation

    Post pictures (and eventually videos if you're out of ideas*) of situations every DJ is afraid of or which just hurt when watching them.

    I start:

    This reminds me of the 2009 Good Vibrations festival in the Gold Coast Australia. FatBoy Slim was the headline act playing main stage.
    About 10 mins into his set the heavens opened up and we got our usual summer flash flooding.
    The place was knee deep in water by the end and was pretty much a pool party.

    took a few picks, but sadly my camera & phone did not survive the onslaught of rain.

    That's Melbourne for you! Sunny one minute, pouring the next!

    And having worked in the festival/touring industry, I'm suprised they put the decks so close to the edge of the stage if they knew that weather was coming - you should always be expecting it in Melbourne!

    I've also seen FOH amps rained on before - 20mins to showtime too! Not pretty! :eek:

    The PA should have at least 2 fuses on the main amp, so might get away with it there. All PA gear in festivals is kept behind the dj. Normally Just a couple of EQ's really by the dj and thats it. I've been stage side AAA to several festivals and have seen this be the case. But i guess it's upto the sound tech dude on site really how wires and sets up the gear.
