T4 On The Beach is a British one day music event which is held on the beach at Weston-super-Mare and televised for Channel 4. The event began in 2003 as Pop Beach in Great Yarmouth, changing to the current title and venue in 2005.

This was the first year a video screen set was introduced, and our first year there too.

The day consists of a number of major contemporary pop and rock music acts from the UK and overseas, performing short sets in front of an audience of over 40,000 predominantly 16-24 year olds.

There is a lot of screaming.

A Done and Dusted production,T4 on the Beach requires us to create bespoke looks for upwards of 60 tracks of pop music covering a wide range of genres. The stage set is always video heavy, often with multiple unique outputs and live video uplinks. Over the years we have designed several different playback configurations to maximise creative use of the screen array whilst maintaining consistently good camera shots for broadcast.

We liase directly with a small number of artists to create specific looks on request, but for the most part we have free rein, our only restriction being time and budget.

The concert itself runs for just over 5 hours, with several shows being shot simultaeneously, including a live broadcast with presenters onstage, audience interactivity and interviews. We drive all the on stage screen content,live, including T4 branding and idents for changeovers and ad breaks, supplied to us by Hello Charlie.
