Arive 2014 feat. Tiësto

For the exclusive EDM Copenhagen electronic festival, presented by Arive, a nine-hour event (running from afternoon to midnight) was packed with a strong lineup of DJs and live acts concluded with Tiësto as the headline - undoubtedly the greatest DJ of the decade.

Production manager and show designer Christian Byriel from CeeBRIGHTER had some specific venue challenges to overcome. “Though being challenged with large window façades, an unusual location and an outdoor venue from daylight to dusk, I feel I achieved my vision and maintained the aesthetic look required by the customer,” he says. It became apparent to him that the G-Spot was to play a large role in his achievement.

For his design, Byriel deployed 20 G-Spot LED moving lights to produce a powerful effect, expanding the stage area to embrace the audiences. “All 20 lamps performed beyond comparison and were the perfect choice for this event. The entire production team was deeply impressed with the bright light output and so were the guests,” states Byriel, in appreciation of a fixture sufficiently bright to create a striking impact for this high-class hotel both in daylight as well as darkness.

With barely eight hours to prepare from get-in until show-start, everything needed to be programmed and reliable in operation. “I felt safe knowing that should the weather turn for the worse, I would have no problems as the G-Spot is IP65 rated. This is crucial for this kind of production. There was absolutely no space nor time for makeshift dome solutions, but I did not have to worry about this at all.”
