Rider

A confirmed booking means you automatically agree on both riders, if some requirements can’t be met, please contact me before the event takes place!

Parking & Entrance

A parking space at the location is mandatory! I bring a lot of gear and cannot walk long distances with it.
For festivals with a crew parking a Gator ride is preferred, again, I bring around 4 tour cases with gear that weigh around 50 kilos so,
when there’s no possibility to park near the stage I need transport from the crew parking to the site, and absolutely at night, back to the crew parking.

The promoter must ensure that there is timely unlimited all area access to the event and/or location for preparation and testing of the VJ installation.
At the time of arrival, the LED screens or projectors are tested and in working condition. If this is not the case then I cannot ensure the setup will be ready before the start of the event, the promoter is aware of this.

Workspace

The promoter has to provide a working space sized 200x100cm (standard stage riser/prak) on a working height of at least 80 but preferably 100cm, for smaller club shows 100x100cm (half a riser/prak) is sufficient, please understand that a flight case is not suitable and in most cases too small for my setup.

Hardware

The standard used resolution is 1920×1080 pixels in a 16: 9 aspect ratios, a deviation from this image size can disform logos, pictures etc. the promoter is aware of this.
If there is a so-called mapping on different parts of a led screen, I cannot guarantee logos, texts etc. are completely visible, the promotor is aware of this.
Promoter will provide 1 free 16A 230V outlet with a schuko connection with clean grounded power. If possible and largely preferred then the LED processor is also at FOH spot, not backstage with a fiber or cat extender line to the FOH, this causes delay in the signal that will create mismatch when beat-matching visuals.

If timecode is demanded by an artist rider (i.e. Showkontrol system) then 2 hardwired CAT6 lines from the DJ booth to the FOH are supplied by the promoter, both checked and working, 1 connected to the Network system of the booth, 1 redundant. See sketch.

If not demanded I’ll bring it probably at my own initiative, but then I will use a wireless setup so no cables are needed, this also includes the booth/DJ cams.

Standard I send 1080P @ 60Hz through HDMI to the processor or projector, this can also be done through SDI (BlackMagic SDI converter)
If other forms of cabling and connecting are needed this can be arranged in advance but all extra charges for this kind of installation and cabling are at extra cost for the promoter and cannot and will not be settled with the agreed fee.
