On August 21, residents of South Carolina came out to Yonder Field for the Solar Eclipse Festival to both take in the eclipse and see Uncle Kracker perform with his new lightshow, which featured Intimidator and SlimPAR fixtures from CHAUVET DJ

His new lightshow was created by Matt Slater, a lighting designer at Luke Combs.  

“Brightness was the key at this show,” said Slater. “The festival is built around the eclipse, so the lighting on our stage had to be bold and bright. I specced four Intimidator Spot 355Z IRC fixtures for this concert and was stunned by the output and coverage I got from these fixtures.” 

Two of the Intimidator Spot 355Z IRC units were placed upstage on his SL320 stage and two other units were in his ground package.

“We didn’t have a lot of fixtures, so what we used had to be not only bright, but versatile too,” said Slater. “The gobos in the Intimidators also gave us a lot of options when it came to creating looks.”  

Eight Intimidator Wash Zoom 350 IRC 20W RGBW fixtures in his rig offered top washing and back washing. The rig also included eight SlimPAR Pro Q USB low profile RGBA wash lights and eight SlimPAR Pro W USB white wash lights.

The color washes were positioned mid-stage and downstage to work with the Intimidator Wash Zoom 350 IRC units, and the white wash units were on the ground package and used for up lighting.  

 “We wanted the stage to stand out, because how many times are we going to do a concert against the backdrop of a solar eclipse?” said Slater.
