Many of us love attending music festivals and concerts, but do we really know what goes on behind the scenes? My father, Jim Ellis, is one of the head lighting engineers and riggers (a person who specializes in lifting and moving extremely heavy objects) in San Diego. I was lucky enough to shadow him these past couple of weekends at The Waterfront Park and Viejas Arena in San Diego and really see what it is like to set up these festivals and concerts. From pushing crates and boxes to climbing 75ft up in the air, I got to see it all and found out the real truth about what really happens behind the scenes. Take a look at how dangerous and rigorous this job can actually be.
