There is a wide and sometimes treacherous gap between a designer’s concept for a show and the actual panorama of light and video that transforms the concert stage.

Keith Hoagland, who has excelled as both a designer and director, talked about bridging the gap between vision and reality.

CHAUVET Professional fixtures were everywhere to be seen at the Glastonbury Festival. Talented designers used them in myriad ways during the five-day celebration of music and light. At the Pyramid Stage, Tim Routledge relied on the COLORado Solo Batten to outline key scenic elements and provide critical sidelighting for headliner Stormzy. The Flying Bus Stage engaged visitors with surreal effects with help from a collection of 27 Maverick fixtures. These are just two examples of how our lights contributed to a great Glastonbury experience.
