Poland - The Open’er Festival - one of the largest music festivals in Poland - has been an institution since 2002. Having welcomed international names including the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Pharrel Williams, Snoop Dogg and Coldplay, it has maintained its status in the Polish festival calendar.
Open’er Festival is held annually in the seaside city of Gdynia. Tasked with overall multimedia support of the five stages was one of Poland’s largest event engineering companies, VES.
Responsible for the overall design and operation of the Beat Stage, Michał ‘Kurczak’ Mazurkiewicz of VES used more than 180 lighting fixtures. Included in the package was the Prolights Arenacob4FC, a full colour LED replacement for a traditional four-cell DWE blinder alongside the Prolights Aar5FAN which stood out as the pixel-FX moving head. It allowed the designer to control the spread of its pixels through the motorised lens system, passing seamlessly from a sharp linear beam effect to a multi-ray effect proving to be “an indispensable fixture in the rig”.
VES says in a statement: “Thanks to the beautiful design and flexibility of these fixtures, the Beat Stage was highly complimented by designers and artists from around the world. We believe the ‘wow factor’ was really achieved.”
