Metropolis Festival 2016

Metropolis

Working With Session Hire for POD promotions, I designed the Main & second stages of the festival. I operated the second stage for acts such as Groove Armada, Solumun, Kormac AV, DJ Shadow & Girlband as well as coordinating & suppling the floor packs and looking after the  guest LD’s on both stages for acts such as Grace Jones, Moderat, Booka Shade, SBTRKT & more

For the second stage which had more electronic acts, I worked closely with Algorithm and Kev Freeney who designed the custom visuals for the show. We wanted to create a cohesive look and a complete stage that was unique and a statement. I’m really happy with how it turned out. We got great feedback from both touring acts and the public.

I used Capture Argo for all my plot work and pre visualisation on both stages and operated the second stage on an Avolites Sapphire touch
