Poland - Blues rock band Dżem celebrated a landmark 40 years of live performances with a massive show at the Spodek Arena in Katowice.
The lighting was designed by Michal Parzych from design collective Green Beam Design who has been involved in all Dżem’s special events for around the last 10 years, and on this one he again worked in collaboration with the band’s regular LD, Market Gubata.
Together, they specified 131 Robe fixtures - 30 MegaPointes, 56 Spikies and 45 LEDBeam 800s, all of which were delivered by rental company, Transcolor.
Green Beam Design (GBD)’s founder Jacek Chojczak explained that the starting point for the lighting was a request from Dżem’s management to have a large upstage LED screen, and apart from that, they left Michal and the GBD team to produce a spectacular solution for presenting the band and their special guests for this seminal event.
GBD also created the show’s video design and co-ordinated the visuals.
Michal Parzych designed the staging and set, with lighting rigged on a series of overhead and side trusses with some on the floor.
Ten MegaPointes were distributed on each of the three main LX trusses one, two and three. The Spikies were on four upstage side towers and the LEDWash 800s were rigged on the large ‘crown’ circular house trusses in the roof of the Spodek Arena and used primarily for audience illumination.
In addition to these, they utilised approximately 100 other lights of various types, all of which were controlled by a grandMA2 console, with another one running content from the disguise media server handling all the video playback.
Transcolors’s crew chief for the event was Jarek Wasasnik and sound was supplied by Target Sound.
