A Serious Stages 16m Supernova was the Main Stage at Bristol’s Love Saves The Day festival, May 26th and 27th, 2017.
Our Supernova looked resplendent with the festival’s logo incorporating LED sequences adorning its apex and flanked by festoon programmed to given the impression of a moving spider once darkness had descended. With six lighting trusses rigged front to back, angled to exaggerate the 3-D perspective towards the six central portrait LED screens, there were access points through the draped rear of the performance space with a further two portrait screens rigged to frame the artists.
The 16m wide Supanova was 14.4m in depth, allowing space for a working area behind the drape splitting the stage, with ample room for the festival’s production team to accommodate quick changeovers for the fast moving program of bands and DJ’s.
On either side of the stage were two extended covered off-stage areas, 3.6m wide by 4.8m deep housing technical production. A 2.5m wide access ramp was located stage right for loading and uploading, while personal access on and off the stage was via separate steps located stage left.
Flanking the stage were two single 12.5m high PA flying masts and we also supplied the triple level front-of-house mixing tower and adjoining 17.2sqm viewing platform with access ramp.
