The free festival takes place annually in the Burgemeester Damenpark in Geleen

The Netherlands - The 29th edition of the free Mama’s Pride Festival took place in Burgemeester Damenpark in Geleen on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May. Reflexion Evenemententechniek supplied the lighting equipment and T.Y.S signed for the design.

Mama's Pride has been known for years as the most convivial pop festival in the Netherlands. The free festival takes place annually in the Burgemeester Damenpark in Geleen, the historic site where the renowned Pinkpop festival once began. At the 2024 edition, 66 acts performed across six different stages. In total, as many as 19,000 visitors enjoyed acts such as Roxy Dekker, STONE and Meltheads.

T.Y.S was responsible for the technical production and Reflexion Evenemententechniek supplied the technology for all stages and the site lighting. An arsenal of fixtures from Infinity and Showtec were used for the entire festival.

The new Infinity Raccoon S420/4 fixtures were eyecatchers. With 70,000 lumens, this fixture provided powerful wash and strobe effects. The 10 separate wash segments and five strobe segments provide endless possibilities to create a different show.

Meanwhile, 12 Showtec Shark - The Meg - Beam One moving heads delivered colourful, dynamic, powerful beams with ‘stunning LED ring effects’. The Showtec Polar Wash 740 brought more LED ring effects and added vibrant, colourful beams that go from 3.5° to 44° thanks to its motorised zoom.

To add extra atmosphere around general areas of the festival, 24 Showtec Helix S5000 Q4 washes were attached to trees using the Showgear Tree & Pole Mounting Bracket MKII.

Mama’s Pride will be holding its 30th edition on 10-11 May 2025.
