Autumn is coming, and the 2015 season of open air events and festivals in Europe is coming to an end. A&O Technology, manufacturer and distributor of FALCON searchlights, is drawing a highly positive balance for the season. At many of the most important festivals this year, FALCONs were used to make statements in light that were visible for miles around. Despite highly changeable weather – with a July heat wave followed by torrential rain in August and intermittent storms all summer long – the German-made searchlights proved, by their complete indifference to the elements, not only heroic effects engines but also true ‘men of the north’.

Spectacular, colour-saturated, dazzlingly bright lighting effects go well with pulsating beats. They make the music visible and transform every open air event into an experience. Such was the case of the World Club Dome in Frankfurt. A&O Creative, under the direction of Manfred “Ollie” Olma, created for Big City Beats a new production for the opening and closing ceremonies in which the world’s biggest club in the Commerzbank Arena was bathed in bright light. This was followed by the popular Hurricane and Southside rock/independent festivals where, for the first time, the client, Benelux GmbH, used FACONs to provide the highlights of the light show. Commissioned by PRG AG, A&O Technology also supplied searchlights for the Wacken Festival and the Böhse Onkelz concert in the Hockenheimring, where the lighting designer, Jerry P. Appelt, worked them into the framework of the gigantic stage to generate impressive special effects. Laser Imagineering, too, integrated the lighting power of FALCONs this year into its production for the Airbeat One Dance Festival.

One of the highlights of the summer of 2015 was without doubt the deployment of FALCONs at the Tomorrowland Festival in Belgium at the behest of ID&T, where lighting designer Sander Den Otter used them to impressive effect not only within the unforgettable stage set but also on the festival grounds.

Lighting shows at the Ferdinands Feld Festival, the maritime “Sail in Bremerhaven” event, and the annual Water Show at the Autostadt brought the open air and festival season for FALCON searchlights to a triumphant close. Commissioned by Erlebnis Bremerhaven GmbH, A&O Creative produced two lighting shows for the windjammer event: the colour-dynamic illumination “Weserlichter” (Weser Lights) on three successive days in the main port and a second display that was visible every evening in the old harbour. The Autostadt integrated the searchlights into its magnificent, home-grown production “Vive la France!” that kept visitors entertained throughout its four-week run. In all, by the time the season was through, over 2.6 million visitors from all over the world had marvelled at the astonishing brightness of searchlights from A&O Technology.

Summing up, one could say that the FALCONs through their versatility and brilliance were able on each occasion to surpass all expectations – regardless of the style of event, the positioning of the devices or the weather conditions. For long-distant effects in particular and to enthuse large crowds, the FALCON proved to be the perfect tool. “We are already looking forward to exciting projects next year,” reveals Adrian Gediga, Senior Manager Sales/Rentals of A&O Technology. “The end of one festival season heralds the start of the next.”
