Spain - Electronics, lights and lots of dancing meet every year at Dreambeach in Villaricos where thousands of people gather for five days to enjoy one of the biggest musical shows in the country on the Main Stage and in the Dreams Tent.
Lighting plays a leading role in electronic music events where the choice of fixtures is of paramount importance. For the last four years of Dreambeach, Eduardo Valverde from Pixelmap Studios has designed the scenarios with lighting supplied by the rental company Fluge.
In his designs, the common factor is the construction of gigantic structures that create the illusion of being a temple of music. Among Valverde’s most recent credits are the stages of Love the Tuenti’s, Love the 90s, A Summer Story, HallowANTS and Red Bull Batalla de los Gallos festivals, among others.
"In the case of the Dreams Tent at Dreambeach, the main challenge was to turn a 100m long, 40m wide tent into a club," explains the designer, who this year worked alongside Carlos Fernández. "We wanted to achieve that closeness between the DJ and the crowd by creating an intimate atmosphere except for the peak moments where you have to dazzle to highlight the work of the DJs.”
Almost 200 Claypaky luminaires were chosen by designer Eduardo Valverde to work on this stage, which was entirely dedicated to techno music.
In addition 86 A.leda B-EYE K10s were scattered around the stage. “This is a fixture that we especially appreciate because of its versatility,” says Valverde. “We can close the zoom and create a very powerful beam, open it to create atmospheres and use its effects model with its rotation and its matrix.”
A total of 48 Sharpys were also installed in the ceiling of the tent. “These served as a backbone joining the stage with the dance floor,” Valverde notes. “Thanks to its powerful hazes, Sharpy could be seen from beginning to end.”
Finally, the powerful Claypaky Stormy offered strobe lighting - a total of 64 units were used.
