Sarah McLachlan Takes Soundcraft Vi6™ To The Fair

Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan brought an abridged version of her world-famous Lilith Fair to Australia in October, the first time the female-only festival tour has been staged outside North America.

The Lilith Fair was founded in 1997 after McLachlan became frustrated with concert promoters and radio stations that refused to feature two female musicians in a row. In Australia local acts Kate Miller-Heidke and The Verses joined her for the 5-concert tour.

Jands Production Services provided the audio equipment and crew for veteran front of house engineer Gary Stokes, who has toured with Sarah for close to 21 years.
