VES Rock Open’er Festival\'s Beat Stage

Poland – The Open’er Festival, one of the largest music festivals in Poland has been an institution since 2002. Having welcomed international names from around the world such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Pharrel Williams, Snoop Dogg and Coldplay, it is no wander that the festival has maintained its iconic status in the Polish festival calendar.

Open’er Festival is held yearly in the picturesque Polish seaside city of Gdynia. Tasked with overall multimedia support of the five stages that make up Open’er Festival, was one of Poland’s largest event engineering companies: VES.

Tasked with the overall design and operation of the Beat Stage, Michał 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 AIR5FAN which stood out as the pixel-FX moving head. The ProLights AIR5FAN allowed the designer able 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 commented: “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.”
