Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival
The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival isn't just some run-of-the-mill country fair. This beast of an event has some serious production needs. At the 2023 iteration, PCE provided production at four key areas: the main stage, the pageant stage, the beer garden stage, and the livestock pavilion.
Over the course of its run, several notable artists performed at the Riverside County Fair, including Flo Rida and The Fray. For The Fray, PCE Backline got involved. We supplied the band with a Nord Stage 2, Yamaha CP300, Ludwig Classic Maple Drum Kit, Shure ULX-D wireless microphones, Marshall 1959HW guitar amp head, Marshall 1960AV 4x12 guitar amp, Fender Deluxe Reverb guitar amp, Ampeg SVT Classic bass head, and Aguilar D410 bass amp.
Both The Fray and Flo Rida played on the main stage, a Stageline SL320 stage trailer outfitted with a JBL VTX line array. PCE audio engineers mixed both shows with a Yamaha CL5 console, while an Absen PL3.9 LED video wall at the back of the stage supplemented the shows with compelling visuals.
The PCE lighting package for the main stage consisted of Chauvet Nexus 4x4, Martin MAC Allure, and GLP impression X4 fixtures, all controlled via a grandMA3 lighting console.
Elsewhere at the show, PCE lighting and audio augmented the series of plays held at the pageant stage. We built lighting towers from Genie ST-20 Super Towers, replete with Martin MAC Allure and ETC ColorSource Spot LED lights.
