Thousands of visitors defied the rain

The Netherlands - The Pop on Top festival returned to the scenic hills of Valkenburg aan de Geul last month, captivating thousands of visitors with a blend of music and light. Central to the festival’s success was Sonic Support VOF, whose lighting and LED screen solutions from Showtec, Infinity, and DMT transformed the event into an unforgettable visual spectacle.

The family-friendly event attracted thousands of visitors who defied the rain to enjoy performances from national and international artists including Lucas & Steve, Rowwen Hèze, Clouseau, Krezip and many more across four stages.

Sonic Support VOF used 60 DMT Premiere Series PS3.9 Blue Line LED panels to create two large LED screens on either side of the main stage, ensuring that every audience member had a good view. These panels were complemented by an additional 30 DMT Premiere Series PS4.6N LED screens, creating a visual feast for the attendees. All the LED screens were tightly controlled by two Novastar VX600 video processors and one Novastar VX4S video processor, ensuring smooth, quality video playback throughout the event.

The stage lighting was designed to create a captivating atmosphere. Sixteen Infinity iB-715 RGBW Beam moving heads provided ultra-fast movements and vibrant colour output, creating dynamic visual effects that enhanced every performance. Complementing these were eight Infinity TF-300 Fresnel fixtures with motorised zoom and consistent colour output, providing optimum stage lighting and highlighting the performers with clarity.

In addition, 16 Showtec Phantom 3R Hybrid moving heads with motorised zoom and dual prisms created razor-sharp beams and intricate gobo effects, adding depth and complexity to the lighting design. The setup also included 64 Showtec Spectral M800 Q4 IP65 RGBW LED spots. Sixteen Showtec Helix S5000 Q4 RGBW outdoor LED washers provided expansive and vibrant colour washes across the stage, while 84 Showtec Compact Par 7/15 Q4 RGBW LED pars added versatility and richness in creating different moods and effects.

Sonic Support VOF’s careful selection of lighting and LED screen products ensured that every detail of the Pop on Top festival was visually satisfying. The combination of Showtec, Infinity and DMT products and professional expertise transformed the event into ‘a sensory delight, captivating the audience and enhancing the overall festival experience’.
