SHROPSHIRE’S ROCK and Bowl Festival (cap. 6,000) wanted to celebrate its 10th anniversary with a dramatic visual impact on stage, according to lighting designers Ashley Heritage and Nic Farman.
Headlined by REWS and Think Floyd, the three-day event chose a “dynamic, fast moving” lighting rig provided by Chester-based CSP AV, featuring Rogue and Nexus fixtures by Chauvet Professional.
Thirty Rogue R2 Wash and 12 Rogue R1 FX-B moving fixtures, plus 20 Nexus 7×7 warm white blinders/audience washes, were mounted on four levels of truss to create tour-like lighting displays.
“Given the growth of the festival in recent years, we wanted to create a powerful impression with our design,” says Heritage.
“The R1 FX-B crafted a large-scale visual feel. The combination of incredible brightness, saturated colours and 360° rotation gave us a lot of looks to play with, including creating light curtains and sharp energetic effects. The Nexus fixtures provided eye candy for daylight and evening performances.”
