The Netherlands – SLF Group and Black Out Lighting used Showtec and Infinity lighting solutions to create an incredible spectacle at Medammecour Draait Door. To complement the Medammecour's fantastic regular cast, over a hundred Infinity, Showtec, and Showgear products were used throughout the week of performances.

As the Carnival season rolls around each year, the province of Limburg readies itself for some entertaining, festive, and spectacular performances. One such recent tradition is the Medammecour, a travelling tour of Carnivalesque musical performances. In a typical year, the Medammecour tours from town to town, putting on performances across Limburg.

On 14 to 21 of October 2021, Medammecour Draait Door was held in the Rodahal in Kerkrade, allowing social distancing restrictions to be observed while accommodating up to 300 spectators per evening. The event featured many of the regular cast and performances that have contributed to the success of the Medammecour in recent years.

A major bonus of hosting the performances in one venue is the truly spectacular lighting setup. SLF Group supplied all the materials and ensured smooth production of the event, while Black Out Lighting provided the light design and programming. Elevating the performance to the next level, Medammecour Draait Door featured an extensive range of products from both Showtec and Infinity.

From Showtec, an abundance of lighting solutions was on display. To provide a variety of effects, Medammecour Draait Door deployed 20 Showtec Phantom 12R Hybrids. The versatile new hybrid moving head is the latest addition to the Phantom series, capable of performing as a beam, spot or wash. An additional 28 Showtec Spectral M1500 Zoom Q4 MKII were also in full force, with the seven 20W RGBW LED Spot to Wash PAR combining majestically with the Phantom 12Rs.

Supporting the already impressive arsenal of Showtec lights were four Showtec Followspot LED 120 W, a compact but powerful spotlight that includes a dimmer, iris, and shutter. An additional 16 Showtec Expression 33000s also featured at Medammecour Draait Door, a wash light from our discontinued Expression range which has demonstrated remarkable longevity.

SLF Group provided 16 Showtec Sunstrip blinders which created a big-stage quality, while a further six festoon cables with lights added a more subtle touch. The cables operated via two Showtec Festoon controllers. The equipment was supported via eight Showgear H-Downriggers.

The intricate light show ran on an Infinity Chimp 300.G2 DMX professional lighting console. Due to the extensive set-up, a variety of Infinity Chimp accessories were deployed alongside the Chimp 300.G2 to extend the maximum possible universes, which included an Infinity Banana Wing, Infinity Peanut Box and a Chimp Dongle for OnPC.
