BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organizer Bernd Breiter. Working with A&O Creative this year they really excelled themselves in terms of both effect and magnitude. True to its motto “higher, faster, further”, the company assembled for the World Club Dome live show the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. A&O Creative, the creative department of the internationally active, Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under the creative direction of the renowned lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma, delivered in the form of its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights” one of the highlights of both the opening and closing ceremonies of the World Club Dome. The impressive images of light that flooded the arena were enough to give spectators goose pimples. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, the CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of Executive Producer.
“We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside, the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound,” recalls Olma.
In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation. According to the organizers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows in the metropolis on the Main river over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000-square-metre party area to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.
“BigCityBeats has long been distinguished by its self-composed intro. It is the highpoint of every show and conveys that ‘weekend feeling’, which we like to call ‘big city beats’, directly to the hearts of all who witness it. For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realization of my dream,” says Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats.
