Robe is centre stage at Exit Festival

An impressive line-up included Jamiroquai, Nick Cave, Pulp, James Zabiela, Fedde le Grand and Underworld

18 August 2011

Serbia - The fast growing Exit festival is staged at the Petrovardin Fortress in Novi Sad on the banks of the River Danube in Serbia, and this year saw over 100 Robe moving lights used extensively to light two of the largest stages.

An impressive line-up of international artists included Jamiroquai, Nick Cave, Pulp, James Zabiela, Fedde le Grand, Underworld, Marco Cariola, Beirut, Laibach were enjoyed by over 100,000 people over four days, with the Festival welcoming its two millionth visitor over the weekend. Some performances were also broadcast live on national television, adding an extra pressure to the production lighting and visuals teams.

Lighting, audio and scenic LED screen for Exit 2011 was supplied by locally based Studio Berar. They have been supplying cutting edge production equipment to the festival since it started in 2000, and have also been using Robe products enthusiastically for several years.

This was the first time on Exit that they had used their new Robe Robin 300 Beams, 12 of which were deployed in the Dance Arena, along with 20 ColorSpot 700E ATs.

Seventy Robe ColorWash 575E AT Zooms were used as the 'workhorse' fixtures on the Main Stage, hung on overhead trusses and giving the designers many creative options to keep the different performances looking fresh and varied.

Goran Kravic, Marko Maleševic, Radoslav Mihalek, Milos Ekic were Studio Berar's four lighting designers assigned to the project. They operated the rigs using a selection of Avolites consoles. Meanwhile, Momcilo Berar and Emil Berar project managed and co-ordinated the complete technical realisation for the event, for Studio Berar.

On the Dance Stage six Robin 300 Beams were on the floor behind the DJ and 6 in the air.
