PROLIGHTS is Out of This World for Moon Landing 50th Anniversary Event

UK – Lighting designer, Matt Tyler used PROLIGHTS LED fixtures to provide stunning lighting for space-age performances by Orbital, Public Service Broadcasting and The Radiophonic Workshop at ‘Apollo 50’, a one-off event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing.

Held at Cornwall’s Goonhilly Earth Station to celebrate the technological accomplishment of the “Arthur” satellite dish, which in 1969 beamed the moon landing footage live to 200 million people in Europe, the anniversary was marked with a day of music, science, art and culture.

For the evening’s triple-bill concert, Matt drew upon the technological advancements of PROLIGHTS’ LED fixtures to deliver spectacular lighting to bring the artists’ space-age themes and sampled astronaut voice recordings to life.

Matt utilised his own stock of PROLIGHTS Luma 700s, Diamond 19s and StudioCOB FC PARs to create the exciting and dynamic looks.

He commented: “I needed to use quality fixtures that could truly do justice to this iconic event. I love the PROLIGHTS design and value, and although I have never needed it, their two-year warranty. I keep coming back for more and more fixtures every year!”

Millstone Sound provided lighting & sound production. Matt purchased the PROLIGHTS fixtures from exclusive UK distributor, A.C. Entertainment Technologies.

He commented: “AC-ET have supported me for several years now, giving me the best customer service. They go out their way to support my company.”
