Saint Bavo’s Cathedral in Ghent, Belgium recently took part in the Gentse Feesten, an annual music and theatre festival. Lighting the way for visitors at this year for the 176th edition of the festive event was a massive collection of CHAUVET Professional fixtures that were used at over 15 stages and other venues. Among the fixture brightening Belgium’s second largest city during its annual escape from the ordinary were the Maverick MK1 Spot, Maverick Storm 1 Wash, Maverick MK1 Spot, Rogue R3 Wash, Rogue R2 Wash, and the COLORado Solo Batten. Additionally, over 200 COLORdash Par H12IP fixtures were used throughout the festival site.

Sono brought lighting excitement to the festivities at Korenmarkt with BSL using the COLORdash Par-Hex 12IP, while Phlippo Productions supplied the stage with Rogue R1 FX- B fixtures. Sono also used the COLORdash Par-Quad 12 IP at Nordic House and A-Pluss.

At Saint Bavo’s, Euro P.A. enlivened the whole square with COLORado Panel Q40 fixtures. The flexible and power-packed stage rig consisted of Maverick MK1 Hybrid, Maverick MK2 Spot, Maverick MK2 Wash, STRIKE 1, and STRIKE P38 units controlled by a ChamSys MagicQ MQ500 Stadium console. The versatile Maverick Storm 1 Wash did double duty at Saint Bravo’s, lighting the square, and also being redirected to serve as a front light during some performances.

In the shadow of the Saint Jacob’s Church, Matthieu Verpoort ran a powerful show on his ChamSys MagicQ MQ500 Stadium console at the Trefpunt Stage that featured 10 Rogue R3 Wash, and 12 Rogue R2 Wash fixtures as well as one Amhaze Stadium haze machine supplied by John & Jane.

Meanwhile at the popular and lively Mardi Gras stage, Solico lit up the action with the Rogue R2 wash, Rogue R1 Spot, and Rogue RH1 hybrid. Other CHAUVET Professional sightings included 50 COLORdash Par Quad 12 and 70 COLORdash Par H12 IP fixtures to light the historic waterfront buildings; the Maverick MK2 Spot, Maverick MK2 Wash, and COLORdash Par H12IP; nine Maverick MK1 Spot and nine Rogue R2 Wash fixtures; the COLORdash Par H12 IP; and the F4 IP.
