ROE Visual is PRG’s choice for Creamfields
Leek, The Netherlands (29 September 2021) – With the ban on festivals lifted just in time to organize the Creamfields festival for 2021, PRG is proud to have been asked to provide video for the eleventh consecutive year, selecting ROE Visual for the job.
Creamfields is one of the largest electronic music festivals in the UK, with around 80,000 attendees and the biggest names in Dance and Electronic music from around the world performing at one of the elaborate stages.
This year’s edition saw a line-up of, among others, David Guetta, Carl Cox, Chase & Status, The Chemical Brothers, Bicep, Eric Prydz, and Armin van Buuren.
PRG is a trusted supplier for the festival, having supplied video for 11 years in a row and adding rigging and lighting now for the seventh consecutive year.
Video is a central element for the festival, underlined by the design of the ARC stage, using video for the side-wings. The stage designs for this year’s edition included a total of 2500sqm LED, and PRG chose to use its ROE Visual LED products throughout the festival.
For the ARC stage, PRG supplied 204 Carbon Series CB5 LED panels for the Upstage Centre screen and riser and no less than 1040 Magic Cube MC-7H panels for the enormous (52Wx20H (31.2Mx12M)) Stage Left Wing. For David Guetta’s performance on the ARC stage, another 42 CB5 panels were used to add to the stage left and right wings, and a further 36 CB5 panels were used to create the horizontal LED cubes in Tiesto’s closing set.
The Horizon Stage used 336 Magic Cube MC-7H LED panels for its upstage center screen, while another 36 Carbon Series CB5 LED panels were supplied for the riser. The Armin van Buuren set used another 24 LED panels on the central riser.
The CF08 stage used another batch of Magic Cube LED panels, 210 for the upstage center screen and 70 for the stage left and right wings. Next to the stages, PRG also provided all the artists extra’s, like 80 MC-7H LED panels for Pendulum’s riser.
“On festivals like Creamfields, with a massive amount of LED out in, sometimes challenging, circumstances, it’s a relief to be able to rely on ROE Visual’s sturdy and road proof LED panels. They are made for jobs like this. Once the LED panels are up, the crew can rely on them to perform”, comments Ian Jones, Account Manager for PRG.
