Robe For Parklife

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Clifton Productions supplied moving lights for the Melbourne event with stage designs by Fuzzy Events and Parklife’s national lighting designer, Davyd Williams. This production was managed by local production manager Adam Gibson in conjunction with national producer, Josh Chapman. Over 90 Robe fixtures were utilised across  four stages, with Parklife featuring its Earth, Wind, Fire & Water themed arenas and stages.

The Water Stage hosted big names like Empire of the Sun, La Roux, Kaskade and Chardy. Twelve Robe ColorWash 700E ATs, 20 Robe ColorSpot 700E ATs and two Robe Fog 1500 FT smoke machines were rigged on truss verticals, front and mid stage trusses.

All fixtures were driven by a grandMA console. Lighting designs for “Empire of the Sun” were created by LD Hugh Toranto, and for the rest of the festival the rig was operated by Matt Hansen from MPH.

The Air Stage was the second largest stage where the line-up included  MSTRKRFT, Crystal Castles, Tiga, and Autokratz. Lighting was operated by LD Justin Ogge (aka ‘netball skirt’) for the whole of the festival and LD Jack Davies for “Crystal Castles” designed the stage layout. The Robe rig was hung on wave shaped trusses with verticals, consisting of 14 Robe ColorSpot 700E ATs, four Robe ColorWash 2500E ATs, and Robe Fog 1500 FT smoke machines, along with a selection of LED fixtures and panels. All lightsources were controlled with another grandMA.

System tech Matt Downs from Clifton Productions, says, “Parklife Melbourne was again sold out as we knew it would be. The Robe’s performance throughout the event was ‘faultless’ and everyone was happy with how reliable the fixtures are, even when used relentlessly for hours on end in an extremely tough operating environment!”
