In my hand full of jobs as a festival backline technician – which means that you take care of the backline (guitar amps, drumkits,..) that the festival provides – i have seen a lot of bands just not sending in a technical rider prior to the festival.

They think they are “just not at the level yet” to hand in a rider or even REQUIREments. But they’re shooting themselves in the foot and sometimes even endanger their on-stage time. Which makes their life worse and sometimes – ours.

For example because they are an 11 piece jungle-fusion african half-ethnic albino softpunk band and need weird instruments in weird places in weird angles.

In this YouTube-Video (which is roughly 20 minues long) i’m showing how to put together a VERY SIMPLE rider and i provide templates for both mac and windows or whatever users.

Thank you for reading and maybe eventually watching 🙂
