UK - Flying the flag for the city’s cultural resurgence is the Liverpool Disco Festival, a weekend-long celebration of underground dance music inspired by the house and disco beats of Chicago and New York.
Tasked with providing exciting visuals for the Stateside and European disco DJs was Cheshire Event Production, which specified seven Chauvet Professional Rogue R1 FX-B, two Rogue R1 Beam, four Rogue R2 Wash and four Rogue R1 Spot fixtures to stunning effect.
With the festival now in its third incarnation and catering to over 3000 people, Cheshire Event Production’s pièce de résistance was to be the scenographic incorporation of the central mirrorball element within the main room at the festival, The Furnace, utilizing the versatile Rogue R1 FX-B fixtures.
“I’ve been toying with the circular truss and mirrorball idea for a while now, and the wild and versatile movements of the FX-Bs seemed to bring everything together in The Furnace,” commented Cheshire Event Production’s Olly Wayman.
Thanks to the Rogue R1 FX-B’s infinite pan and tilt rotation by five individually controlled 15W RGBW moving heads, the fixture played a key role in crafting a cornucopia of visual effects as versatile and exciting as the DJ sets.
“Despite their intricate and versatile effects, even the most basic programmer can get a great show out of them!” continued Wayman. “Needless to say, the disco vibe was bright, colourful, and the mirrorball just screamed disco!”
Providing a number of crucial points of supporting illumination within The Furnace room was Wayman’s selection of Rogue R1 Beam, R1 Spot and R2 Wash fixtures, which were suspended from ceiling trussing around the fringes of the event space.
