PRG Creates Visual Lustre for Creamfields
Leek, The Netherlands, (1 October 2018) – With 3,000 square meters of LED screen, 18 Media Servers and two D3 Media Servers, PRG, the technical production specialist, supplied lighting, rigging and video services to the 21st edition of Creamfields, the electronic dance music festival.
Creamfields, a four-day event, which saw more than 70,000 fans descend on the Daresbury site each day, celebrated its 21st anniversary by introducing a number of new arenas – Silo, Generator and Warehouse. Each raised the bar in festival production and were designed to envelop the audience with an all-out assault on the senses.
Ian Greenway, director of LarMac Live, who managed the festival’s production, engaged PRG to provide an incredible amount of technical infrastructure to the festival, including a range of ROE Visual products like the ROE Visual Carbon CB5 LED panels, Magic Cube MC7 and the transparent ROE Vanish. All these products were used to create large LED structures, providing the platform for stunning high-resolution content to be displayed.
“We have been working with Cream and LarMac Live for years and we continually help Creamfields to push the limits in terms of production values,” McCauley explained. “More LED and screens than ever before, higher resolution, better control equipment, two pre-vis studios and content management all played their part in making this year’s festival one to remember – festival-goers will be talking about an epic experience for years to come.”
Richard Gorrod, head of event services at PRG project managed the lighting, rigging, automation and video elements within Steel Yard. Q Willis, head of rigging services at PRG, oversaw all rigging elements and Nathan Avery, PRG crew chief, headed up video.
Gorrod commented: “PRG worked on nine stages at Creamfields, supplying rigging, lighting and video equipment and services. The show just keeps getting bigger and better each year and the festival’s 21st outing certainly pushed the envelope. PRG is hugely proud to be a part of that story. We are looking forward to pushing the boundaries even further next year.”
