XL Video supplied 2,200sqm LED screens across eight Creamfields stages, a record for the festival.
The EDM event, staged on Daresbusy Estate near Warrington over the August Bank holiday weekend, included the largest amount of screen supplied to date to the festival.
XL has been involved in Creamfields for the last five years via creative and technical production specialists LarMac LIVE.
Three XL project managers – Steve Greetham, Paul “Macca” McCauley and Connie Glover – co-ordinated the project on-site due to its scale and the tight timescale.
Around 70,000 dance music fans watched artists including North and South Stage headliners Avicii, deadmau5, Calvin Harris and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike plus other sets from Hardwell, Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Fatboy Slim, Armin Van Buuren in A State of Trance, Steve Angello in Size Matters, Axwell & Ingrosso in Departures.
The two main side IMAG screens on the North and South stages were made up from a combination of XL’s high brightness Radiant MC-18 and Pixled F12 products. F12 was used for the centre areas with MC-18 surrounding.
Onstage, the majority of the screen sections were made up from Pixled F15, with the front of the DJ booths clad in Radiant MC-18 Hybrid – a standard medium 18 mm pitch tile with 32 x 32 pixels per panel, and 4 x 4 higher brightness (7700nit) low resolution pixels embedded in the same panel.
Creamfields follows soon after XL’s construction of what is believed to be the largest temporary LED screen in Europe for the Opening Ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, which used 1,000sqm of Radiant.
