PRG XL Video supplies Creamfields

PRG XL Video supplied video, lighting and rigging across eight stages, including the two main stages, at electronic music festival Creamfields.

More than 70,000 music fans descended on Daresbury in Cheshire for the event, which saw artists such as Fatboy Slim and Calvin Harris take to the stage.

The two main stages, Arc and horizon, had new designs for 2016. For the Arc stage, PRG XL Video installed a truss system and a similar design was used for the Horizon stage to change Avicii’s set design into Tiesto’s overnight.

PRG XL Video’s head of rigging services Q Willis commented: “By producing individual, accurate show artist plots, that allowed us to keep overnight changes to a minimum and costs down.

“With PRG XL Video supplying rigging on two of the stages, and working alongside our own lighting and video teams, this really enabled us to plan ahead and work out a lot of the potential on-site issues in the design stages. That meant we could create an efficient plot which kept the on-site work to manageable levels.”
