Mutiny Festival, Portsmouth

Our client was a rapidly growing festival organiser & promoter, with an incredible portfolio of events.

The Brief

Our client, a rapidly growing promoter & festival organiser, required us to provide an eye-catching and impactful LED AV solution for their main stage with further creative installations in their various dance tents for the 3rd year running; this awesome event is now attracting in excess of 30,000 attendees. They requested a high resolution LED screen for the backdrop of the main stage, along with left and right LED iMAG screens to further engage the audience. To add vibrancy and draw attention to the DJ sets in their multiple dance tents, we selected a creative and unique set of LED columns to display bright moving graphics, coming together to provide a complete LED surface. With a line-up including Steve Angello, Ceelo Green and Groove Armada, this event was one to remember.

Planning and Preparations

When planning and executing large AV festival solutions and covering multiple artist riders, innovation and planning are key. A well thought out logistics plan is required due to the variety of AV products being selected and their different installation positions throughout the venue. Being prepared ensures that the installation process goes as smoothly and quickly as possible for the client, identifying any potential challenges before they arise.

The Successful Solution

After discussing the clients requirements and plans with out technical team, we selected our incredible indoor & outdoor digiLED 6mm LED screen as the main stage backdrop, due to its high resolution and brightness levels of over 5500 nits.  The use of a large LED screen positioned at the back of the stage provides and entire set piece to be used with a variety of content solutions.  For the left and right iMAG screens, our digiLED 10mm outdoor LED screen was the perfect solution.

The 10mm is well situated to being hung in an outdoor environment due to its IP rating, lightweight panels and high brightness.  The left and right LED screens further ensure that the audience can see the screens and stage activity regardless of viewing distance and angle, connecting the stage as a full LED backdrop, with the addition of SFX to fully engage the crowd.

With the added brief to provide a creative LED solution for the multiple dance tents, we used the 12mm Mesh LED screen.  This screen provides a wide viewing angle and has excellent brightness. Its transparency adds a unique effect when paired with the correct content.  This visual LED solution added brightness and high resolution graphics to the DJ stage set, keeping the audience engaged.  Using LED screens as the full visual centrepiece, creates a truly visual audience immersion.
