AARHUS, Denmark – The East Coast House Party was the ideal outdoor nightclub environment with a high-tech lighting design by Swedish event company Adapt. Held yearly, the East Coast Party is an open-air event held in Östhammar, north of Stockholm. Deployed throughout the entire venue by Adapt event planners, HARMAN’s Martin RUSH Beam MH 3 lighting fixtures created the ultimate party scene.
“We had plenty of reasons to choose the Martin RUSH Beam over other lighting fixtures, but in short, RUSH lighting provided the long distance reach we required with the stage setup,” stated Viking Grandin, Senior Project Manager, Adapt. “RUSH’s small fixture size, high output and narrow beam capabilities allowed us to shoot out over the 5000-capacity crowd and the dance floor without any brightness issues,”
Adapt placed 16 of the Martin RUSH Beams on the stage floor and above a backdrop Martin LC-Series LED wall to create the spectacular effects. The rig also included a Maxedia Compact, numerous Atomic 3000’s, Jem Roadie Compact and an M6 console.
”The speed and the many possibilities of the RUSH Beam made it ideal for this type of club event,” Grandin continued. ”In just one fixture we had a tight beam, frosted beam and a flower effect. This made the lightshow very flexible and ever-changing.”
