BERLIN - Robe moving lights – including 30 MMX Spots and 44 ColorWash 700E ATs - were in action on the Main Stage at the 2012 Berlin Festival, taking place over two days at the atmospheric Tempelhof Airfield, a former US military base.
20,000 music fans enjoyed a fabulous international line up including The Killers, Sigur Rós, Plan B, Kate Nash, Franz Ferdinand, Orbital and many more, together with local and national talent.
Lighting for four stages including the Main was supplied by locally based rental company TSE Corp.
Tilman Schumacher, production lighting designer for the main stage, specified the Robe fixtures, although the rig was based heavily on Steven Douglas’s festival design for The Killers who played a storming Friday night headline slot.
Schumacher likes Robe fixtures generally for their extreme brightness to size ratio.
The MMXs and 38 of the ColorWash 700E ATs were hung on the overhead trusses with the other six ColorSpots on the floor. The production lighting rig was controlled with a grandMA2 full size console, and various bands brought in their own desks.
TSE Corp currently has a stock of over 150 Robe moving lights including MMX Spot, LEDWash 600, ColorWash and Spot 2500E ATs and Color Wash, Spot and Beam 700E ATs.
