USA - Superfly, organisers of the inaugural Lost Lake Festival in Phoenix, Arizona, entrusted long-time collaborator Bandit Lites with providing the lighting for the event’s two mainstages.
The lighting company supplied the lighting package for the Camelback and Piestewa stages, where performances included The Killers, Chance the Rapper, Pixies, Huey Lewis & The News, The Roots, Dreamcar, Run the Jewels, Odesza and Major Lazer.
“The main brief for the two SAM575 stages was to make them individual, so they each had their own character, and to make them logistically friendly for changeovers and any band lights or scenic pieces that would come in,” said Bandit production manager Dizzy Gosnell.
The Camelback stage had over 130 fixtures and featured Magic Panels, Rogue Hybrids, Cuepix WW2, VL6000 Beams and Illumipanel architectural washes controlled with a pair of grandMA2 full desks.
The Piestewa stage had another 120 fixtures including Clay Paky Mythos, Clay Paky Sharpys, VL3500 Washes, VL 3000 Spots, Flare, Illumipanel washes and DWE 4 lite fixtures, also controlled by two grandMA2 full size consoles.
Bandit’s crew for the three-day weekend included Vanessa Sexton, Brenna Rae, Jessie Hochinyavong, Joseph DiLeo, Ty Veneziano, Cody Cheatham and Jason Giaffo, with major support provided by project manager Gene Brian.
“The seven crew onsite really did a fantastic job of prepping, hanging and running the lighting systems,” added Gosnell. “There was a lot of tight tolerances in getting both large systems on the StageLine SAM575’s. Lamp spacing on both rigs was critical to the big looks looking big; one of my mantras has always been that a tape measure is just as important as a wrench and meter.”
