Desert Trip Festival Shines On with Roger Waters and Syncrolite

USA – A historic gathering of rock’s biggest legends known as the Desert Trip festival took place during the first two weekends of October. Showcasing six of the biggest acts in rock history, Desert Trip pushed each of these headliner acts to stand out. One act that is especially recognised for his outstanding visual design is Roger Waters, and his Desert Trip effort was no exception.

During a tune up concert held in Mexico City a couple of weeks before Desert Trip, Waters used ten Syncrolite SXLs to wow the audience with their power and punch. For Desert Trip the count was increased to 50 fixtures that were lined up behind the stage to create incredible effects that could be seen for miles above the Empire Polo Club field, the site of the festival.

Earlier this year Roger Waters’ creative team tested several fixtures at the festival site and concluded only the Syncrolite products could achieve the memorable looks they wanted to create for this high profile event.
