USA - The Hangout Music Festival, a three-day event that takes place on a sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico, served up a diverse line-up featuring The Killers, The Chainsmokers, Kendrick Lamar, The Man and a host of other stars.
Supporting the music on the popular Surf Stage was a rig that included Rogue RH1 Hybrid moving fixtures from Chauvet Professional and Ilumipanels from sister company Iluminarc, supplied by Bandit Lites. Put together by lighting designer Dizzy Gosnell and project manager Gene Brian, the rig was run by festival LD Alexandra Gagnon.
A key element of the Surf Stage design was a series of overhead curved truss structures that conveyed images of rolling waves. Riding on those “waves” and adding movement and colour to them, were 18 Rogue RH1 Hybrid fixtures. The Rogue units were arranged in groups of six, flown on the three curved truss formations.
“The RH1 lights were used most often as beam fixtures,” says Gagnon. “Their fast colour scrolling really went well with the wave configuration of the truss. Our visiting LDs favoured the intense colour scrolling and the prism effects on the Rogues. They found the internal speed and effects to be a great asset. It gave them a different punch within the rest of the rig.”
Included in that rig was an impressive collection of beams, washes, blinders, strobes and four Ilumipanel units that were used to colourise the stage left and stage right scrim. Gagnon drew on the entire rig to create an array of powerful and engaging looks when she ran the board for supporting bands.
