Rigging specialists Over The Top wanted a performer winch system that had easy and fast assembly, quick movement and the highest safety factors. The performer winch system would need to custom designed to accommodate Boyzone's planned performance, to fly the band members to the 'B' stage and then back to the main stage again.
