UK - Star Events has released a video highlighting the company’s work for British Summer Time Hyde Park (BST) as the festival stretched to accommodate Roger Waters’ Us+Them performance (read the production report in LSi September 2018), the first of its six sell-out shows this summer.
With Waters’ production requiring more than 1,000m of LED screen, 110 tons of production and no performance box, Star redesigned the entire Great Oak sub-structure and super-structure, increasing the width of the stage by 20m.
Shot by video production and promotion company In The Bag, this look behind the scenes focuses on the Star team building the Great Oak, panning across the Vista hospitality structure, the Barclaycard Stage, brand activations for Barclaycard and Samsung, the main entrance arches and site wide overlay. Watch the video here.
Roger Barrett, special projects director at Star Events, comments: “To achieve what Roger Waters needed, while still enabling the other five major BST Hyde Park shows, was challenging to say the least. This film is a stirring document of Star working with a promoter committed to providing the very best for artists and audiences.“
