MAC III Profiles at Ultra Music Festival 2009

12 May 2009

USA - The 11th edition of Miami's Ultra Music Festival took place on 27-28 March on the beachfront at Bicentennial Park. The outdoor electronic music event, held annually during the Winter Music Conference, attracted 70,000 revellers and acts such as Tiësto, Black Eyed Peas, The Prodigy, Paul Van Dyk and Bloc Party.

Spread across multiple stages, lighting director and stage designer for the entire festival was Stephen Lieberman, president of SJ Lighting of Agoura Hills who took advantage of the chance to test drive Martin's MAC III Profile.

"Felix Lighting was my vendor for the main stage and they had recently purchased 32 MAC III Profile units," Lieberman commented. "I was very interested in using this fixture because of the output and advanced features - focus tracking, and great aerial gobos were perfect for this environment."

The MAC III Profiles were the primary profile fixture used on the main stage with fixtures mounted across three flown trusses as well as several units placed on the deck. Other Martin gear also got into the act. The MAC III units on the main stage were joined by 38 Atomic 3000 strobes while MAC 700 Profiles and MAC 700 Washes were used on Stage 2 and MAC 250 Entours on Stage 5.

"The equipment held up extremely well in a harsh environment, getting worked pretty hard to electronic music all night long," Lieberman stated.
