Ever wondered who works behind the scenes at Brighton Fringe? We've been talking to sound designer and technician Daniel Stevens to find out what he's been up to this festival.

Don’t be too disappointed if you only get small audiences - there’s a lot of competition out there

Hello! Who are you and what will you be doing this Fringe?

I’m Daniel Stevens and I’m a lighting and sound designer and technician.

This year I will be working with Something Underground Theatre Company again, assisting with their technical equipment, as well as taking production photos.

How many Brighton Fringe Festivals do you have under your belt?

My first Fringe was 2009 and I’ve been involved with various companies and roles every year since.

Which shows should we be looking out for this year?

Something Underground Theatre Company’s A Good Jew at Exeter Street Hall

Do you have any advice for first time Fringe performers?

Do you have any advice for first time Fringe audiences?

Look out for some of the shows in the smaller venues, off the main stretch. Not all of the best shows are in the bigger venues or have the biggest budgets.

What is your most memorable moment from past Fringe Festivals? Good or bad, you decide!

Perhaps the first Fringe shows I did at the New Venture Theatre. We had a performance of Festen run almost every day for two weeks and it was great but intense.

If you had to describe Brighton Fringe in one word, what would it be?
