Lighting up downtown Solvang

This past holiday season we were given the opportunity to work with IDK Events to provide the production equipment and expertise for the City of Solvang’s Julefest activities. This included many different show aspects that we needed to coordinate and implement for the month and a half run of events that began on Black Friday.

The main request was to install a weekly light show along 3 blocks of Copenhagen street with the purpose of helping to create an environment for visitors to stay out later and enjoy the wonderful restaurants and shops Solvang has to offer. The shows would run 4 times a night Thursday through Saturday. To accomplish this we worked with ADJ Lighting, Global Truss, and Avante Audio to supply the equipment. Ultimately settling on 110 – outdoor rated high power LED wash units to highlight and color the trees. additionally we selected 16 outdoor rated Hydro Beam X2 moving head units to add the wow factor the the show. All of this was mounted on global truss totems and timed to music played through Avante A10 speakers.

In addition to the street lighting show, Islay Events provided production equipment for many other Julefest events which including sound and lighting for the tree lighting ceremony, a drone show with over 2000 guest, and of course Danish New Years celebrations.
