BRISBANE, Australia – More than 150 Robe moving lights were spread around multiple stages on Summafieldayze 2013, a popular marathon dance music festival staged at Doug Jennings Park, The Spit on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Offering a seismic opportunity for all party people to move and groove for 24 hours of the best music and excitement, heading up the action were plenty of electronic legends like The Chemical Brothers, M.I.A, Fedde Le Grand, Mark Ronson, Hot Chip, The Faders, Kimbra and more.

Lighting equipment, together with lighting production designs for the event’s three main stage areas, was supplied by Clifton Productions, with one with the largest stock of Robe fixtures.

Stage One was based around M.I.A.’s spec and featured 22 Robe ColorSpot 2500E ATs, 8 ColorWash 2500E ATs and 18 ROBIN 600 Beams. The set centerpiece was an extensive upstage video wall.

The second stage was custom designed to accommodate the Chemical Brothers’ visual DJ show. Lights included 22 Robe ColorSpot 1200E ATs, 30 Robin 600 LEDWashes and 8 Robin 600 Beams.

The “Hot Chip“ concept developed for Stage Three featured 12 Robe Robin 600 LEDWashes, 16 ColorWash 2500E ATs and 13 ColorSpot 2500E ATs, complete with 30 x 18 mm pitch video panels. All of these were controlled by a ChamSys MQ 100 console plus wing, with a Catalyst v4 media server for the video playback.

Reports were that the Robes all stood up to the heat and tough operating environment of being hammered for 24 nonstop hours.
