ILESONIQ: MESMERIZING, DELIRIOUS.
If anything, our participation at Ilesoniq this year was a demonstration of how Stageline’s flexibility can adapt to different event styles, capitalizing on the formidable capabilities of our stages.
There is something intense and imaginative about the electro-pop scene at this festival that makes this show the ideal vehicle to test new scenic ideas that enhance the audience and artist’s experiences.
On that front, the SAM750 performed admirably. Its 152,000 lb (68,946 kg) rigging capacity was put to good use with giant screens and speakers, pumping out frantic visual and sonic information to the young and super energized crowd.
But for us, the real stars at Ilesoniq were our two new Delay and Follow Spot Towers.(Ok…we’re not impartial here!) The weekend before at Osheaga they were soberly dressed with follow spots and sound delay equipment. Just a few days later, they were supporting giant screens facing the audience, pushing the visuals way over the top in a non-stop party atmosphere. Just as it should be at Ilesoniq!
Overall, this Stageline setup was ideal in helping acts like Above and Beyond, Steve Angello, Die Antwoord, Kaskade, and DeadMau5 make a strong impression, to the delight of all involved.
Have a look at the photos…
