Eurolite Dazzle for EDM in Las Vegas
USA - The Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas is the biggest Electric Dance Music (EDM) Festival in the world. In 2014, more than 400 000 visitors from 40 countries attended the festival site over three nights. They were dazzled amongst others things by hundreds of Eurolite spotlights from Steinigke Showtechnic of Germany.
It is the mixture of music and light installations, which makes the EDC Las Vegas so unique. Featured in this year’s light installation were numerous Eurolite Audience Blinders with COB technology – they had their major performance on the main stage, the Kinetic Field.
The field was dominated by the biggest stage ever constructed in the USA. On a width of more than 130 metres and more than seven storeys, over 1000 light effects were mounted – among them more than 1000 square metres of just video panels. The Audience Blinders from Eurolite were spread all over the stage as warm white dots.
Steve Lieberman, responsible light designer of the "Kinetic Field", relied on the power of 2.5 million Watts to make the main stage shine brutally bright this year. In comparison: the three stages at "Rock am Ring" had a power consumption of 650 000 Watts in total. The LEDs around the main attractions were controlled by Madrix Ultimate. Seven stages were offered to the dance-crazed crowd – on three of them, Eurolite products were used; including hundreds of PMC-16s.
In 2014, EDC took place for the fourth time in Las Vegas and attracted visitors from 40 countries into the gamblers' city. The line-up read like a who’s who of electronic music: Show acts from Avicii and Afrojack to Carl Cox and Tiesto provided entertainment for the masses.
