In the best hands – Cameo inspires the lighting designers at the Festival Lent in Slovenia

From 23 June to 1 July, the city centre of Maribor was transformed into a large festival area for music, art and culture. For the 30th time, large and small stages were erected in the medieval city district and the city park to host Festival Lent – the largest open-air festival in Slovenia and one of Europe’s largest. In addition to a multitude of national and international artists, including this year’s Eurovision Song Contest participants Joker Out or funk legend Fred Wesley, the lighting designers also put the faders in their hands at Festival Lent. To stage the broad spectrum of genres, the Lumen Beings had an equally versatile range of moving lights, LED bars and flood lights from Cameo at their disposal this year.

Main Stage

On a total of five of the seven stages, including the main stage, Jože Skarlovnik, technical director of the festival, used Cameo spotlights. The focus was primarily on IP65-capable outdoor spotlights, with which those responsible did not have to compromise on performance, weight and flexibility even in inclement weather. Aside from the OTOS H5 IP65 Beam-Spot-Wash Hybrid Moving Heads as floor lights, the ZENIT W600 SMD with pixel control also played to their strengths as strobes and eye-catchers on the main stage.

Anže Trstenjak, lighting designer for the band Joker Out, was also enthusiastic about the OPUS X Profile moving heads, which provided plenty of dynamics as backlight and effect light with powerful gobos and animations: “The performance of the OPUS X Profile is impressive.” Dorej Val Škaper, lighting designer for Slovenian folk-rock musician Vlado Kreslin, also believes that the OPUS X Profile even belongs on every stage: “The quality and precision of the beams and colours blew me away and I would be happy to see the OPUS X Profile more often in Slovenia.”

Večer Stage

On the Večer Stage, the PIXBAR 600 PRO LED bars immediately catch the eye, mounted both in the stage backdrop and on the front arched truss construction – here as an IP65 version – and providing powerful colours, strobe and chase effects.

Jazz Lent Stage

In front of the jazz stage, Gašper Bohinec was at the lighting desk – and also relied on the versatile PIXBAR 600 PRO LED bars. Gašper’s personal highlight, however, was the compact and lightning-fast AZOR S2 Spot Moving Head, which was “the perfect choice” as a show light for the highly acclaimed shows by Fred Wesley and French drum legend Manu Katché.
