World class Elvis Presley tribute acts including Dean Z and Pete Storm were on stage at the Dagenham event to provide an afternoon of family entertainment. When Elvis himself wasn’t performing, a variety of rock and roll bands also took to the stage.
In addition to the music, a vintage hair and makeup parlour was on site for anyone who wanted to look the part. A jive tent was present showing people how to groove on to the classic tunes, and there were classic American cars from the 50s on show to add to the nostalgia.
Overall, the event was a great day out for the whole family. Elvis Fest is a part of the Summer of Festivals 2017 across the borough of Barking and Dagenham, which has included other fantastic events such as Barking Folk Festival and Roundhouse Music Festival.
Behind the scenes, organisers kept things running smoothly with the use of Motorola DP2400 two way digital radios. Communication between various staff was a breeze even over long distances, helping coordinate all aspects of the festival including setup and security.
Equipment Rugged Enough for Outdoor Use
Featuring IP67 water and dust resistance, the Motorola DP2400 is perfect for outdoor events where equipment will inevitably be exposed to the elements. The advanced noise cancellation of the DP2400 is also crucial at a music festival where high levels of background noise can make hearing transmission tricky.
Straightforward, intuitive operation ensured staff could simply pick up a handset and go with minimal training required. The impressive 29-hour battery life of the handset also made sure that no one’s communication was interrupted due to a lack of power.
For particularly loud areas around the stage, D-shape earpieces and lightweight headsets ensured that crew members were able to hear each other over the music. Two wire earpieces provided a discrete method of communication for security, all while a DR3000 repeater and antenna system boosted the clear radio reception across the whole site.
