WHITE SPRINGS, FLORIDA – Country fans turned out to enjoy the hits from country music’s biggest names at the inaugural Party in the Pines Music Festival. Bienville Entertainment turned to Bandit Lites, the world’s premier concert lighting company and the industry’s best in festival lighting systems to supply the lighting for the two stages. Hailed as the largest country music festival to ever come to North Florida, Party in the Pines featured VIP accommodations, beautiful camping facilities and meet and greets all at the stunning Bienville Plantation, one of the country’s best fishing and hunting resorts.

Headliners for the two-day event included Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Brothers Osborne, LANCO, Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd.

Bandit Lites provided more than 160 fixtures for the main stage alone, where the lighting would have to stand out in both day and evening performances. Chauvet Legend 230SR Beams, VL 3000 Spots, VL 3500 Washes, Lycian M2 Spots, Robe Robin 600 Washes, Bandit’s exclusive GRNLite LED Moving Washes and Bandit 5x5’s all contributed to a diverse and dynamic design that flooded the stage with colorful looks, while the second stage had a more streamlined system including a grandMA2 ultra-light console for control.

Bandit’s crew for the weekend included Shawn Beaulieu, John Lucksinger and Alex Gagnon. Additional support was provided by Bandit Project Manager Matt King, who coordinated every aspect of the lighting equipment heading down South.
