Carnival at home

Carnival at home

A fleet of fixtures and LED panels support festivities.

With the lockdown still in effect, the Carnival festivities had been cancelled nationwide in The Netherlands. To counteract the empty feeling felt by many, Cultura mosae, Muziekgieterij, philharmonie zuidnederland and De Tempeleers had organised a ‘Vastelaovend Hoeskonzèr’, a special concert for everyone to watch live from home, with famous local artists (Beppie Kraft, Frans Theunisz and others) performing their festive songs that would normally engage the motley crowds partying in the streets in all the south of The Netherlands. Technical support for this event was provided by Demo productions, who used 9 Infinity TF-260C7 Fresnell fixtures, 24 Showtec Stageblinder 1 LED and 8 Stageblinder 4 LED blinders, 74 Showtec Power Spot 9 Q5 spots, a Showtec Net-8/3 Art-Net/DMX converter, 42 DMT Premiere Series PS3.9N LED panels and a Novastar VX4S video processor to support the artists on stage at the Muziekgieterij. The 42 DMT PS3.9N LED panels were combined into a single large screen to build the back of the stage. The Infinity and Showtec equipment provided all the light effects needed to support the whole performance. The show was recorded and can be watched back on Facebook. Photos credits: Focus22.
