Rock band Big Something recently hosted their namesake Big What Festival, which featured a light show with 36 CHAUVET DJ luminaires, including 12 Intimidator Scan LED 300 scanners, eight Intimidator Spot LED 350, eight SlimPANEL Tri 24 IP, and eight COLORband PiX LED linear fixtures.

The light show was designed by Daniel Thibault of Life Is Art Studio and Cameron Grogan.

“Given the nature of this festival, we wanted to engage the crowd as much as possible with lighting,” said Thibault. “Big Something has a very loyal fan base and has some strong ties with that base. The band wants to see their fans, and the fans want to see the band, so audience lighting is important. We spread the movers out across the rig so we could hit the crowd with light from a lot of different directions. We liked to mix colors in unusual ways to set the tone. We ran a lot of yellows and greens together to create an eco-friendly atmosphere. At times, we saturated the stage in very rich colors to convey the same kind of psychedelic image.”

In addition, the festival setup included four Hurricane 1600 foggers, which were used to alter the mood onstage and offer atmospheric effects. The COLORband PiX LED fixtures were positioned on either side of the stage to create a sense of structure.

“We were happy with how this turned out,” said Thibault. “There were a variety of acts on stage, and we had the flexibility to support all of them. At the same time, our show never got away from the main concept of this festival, which revolves around audience engagement.”
