You Me At Six can be caught at several festivals this summer, including Slam Dunk and Isle of Wight
UK - Lighting designer Louis Oliver of Okulus has used an array of Showline SL NITRO 510C fixtures as part of his colour-rich and punchy lighting design for You Me At Six's UK arena tour.

Specifying 29 of the powerful LED units from Zig Zag Lighting, Oliver rigged 18 on spines of truss in the air. Eleven of the strobes also made up his floor package upstage, where they lined the bottom of the vast video screen.

"I really like the SL NITRO 510C, it's my LED strobe of choice," says Oliver. "My design for this show was very video-heavy, however the units held their own against the 58' wide 20' deep video wall, as well as the other lighting in the rig."

Oliver's design was based on the band's previous touring campaign for the Cavalier Youth album. However he magnified it for the arena run, commissioning the slick video content from Pablo Beckett of Bryte Design and specifying the Showline strobes.

"After using the SL NITRO 510C on the Chvrches design last year we knew that they would be perfect for the You Me At Six arena tour," continues Oliver. "I employed them as both a powerful wash at points and a super bright punchy strobe at others."
