On the 9th of August 2015, the renowned Polish rock band Skaldowie gave a big concert in the city of Gdów to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The national broadcasting corporation, TVP, organized the event and a live crowd of 15,000 attended the outdoor venue.
For the impressive stage setup, no less than 100 x SixPacks blinders and 50 x P-5 wash lights from SGM were integrated into the light design. Lighting designer, Sebastian Pachciarek, explains that he chose the P-5s due to their many advantages such as powerfulness and viewing angle. He used the SixPacks as wall LEDs, and for this purpose, he particularly emphasizes the ease of combining a large amount of fixtures. He then adds; “The fact that both types of fixtures are IP65-rated was quite important – especially for concerts under the cloud”. Finally, he underlines that both the P-5s and SixPacks performed flawlessly.
When asked if he would consider using SGM lights again, Pachciarek states that he really likes these lamps and he will definitely consider using them again. Luckily, he has easy access to them, as he cooperates with TSE Group, a Polish rental company that has a considerable SGM stock.
