Elation Platinum FLX™ Lights Germany’s Love Family Park Festival


Full service production company satis&fy turned to their stock of Elation Professional Platinum FLX™ hybrid moving heads for Love Family Park, one of Germany’s top electronic music festivals. Held July 2nd at Messepark in Mainz, the annual summer gathering, now in its 21st year, featured 12 hours of techno music by legendary EDM acts like Sven Väth and Carl Cox, amongst others. On behalf of event producers Cosmopop, satis&fy built up five stages and was responsible for the audio and lighting setup.
 “The Platinum FLX fits our needs perfectly,” stated Martin Heuser, Global Director Lighting & Rigging Services at satis&fy of the award-winning hybrid fixture. “It’s not a product we chose for just one special effect but a fixture we can use on a large variety of shows for beam looks, washes, gobo projections, mid-air profile looks and certainly a lot more. It’s a ‘real’ hybrid compared to other hybrids.”
 satis&fy used 28 Platinum FLX fixtures on the festival for a variety of purposes. The multi-functional fixtures, 100 of which were added to satis&fy’s inventory earlier in the year, worked with other automated lights in the setup. Its independent dual optics can switch between beam, spot and wash modes quickly, making changes from a pencil thin beam to a fat tree trunk beam of light a breeze, while its 20,000 lumens of power can cut through other lighting and light from LED video walls.
 The Platinum FLX has continued its popularity this summer, having seen service on numerous events on both sides of the Atlantic. Surrounded by rolling countryside, the Love Family Park festival harks back to the days of the love-themed gathering, celebrating life, love, music and togetherness. Set in sprawling countryside, this year’s event attracted over 20,000 visitors.
