Nearly 500 Fixture helped shape the drama and magic at the high energy 2016 Reverze spectacular produced by Bass Events and staged at Antwerp’s Sportpalais in Belgium, which was packed to its 20.000 capacity with hard dance music fans.

The theme for Europe’s largest indoor hard style event this year was ‘Deception’ (nothing is what it seems) … and an ingenious show design ensured that the guest experience met the brief in all dimensions!

A spectacular lighting, set and visuals design was imagineered by Kristof van Mensel, Patrick Bellens and others from Belgian visual design practice, The Creative Factory (TCF). Playing on the theme – which offered some serious latitude for invention – their starting point for both lighting and video designs was having lots of unpredictable visual tricks up their sleeves ./. Which could be revealed as the night unfolded.

The lighting equipment was delivered by rental company Phlippo Showlight and included:
180 x Robe Pointe (TV Colour wheel)
36x Robe Ledwash 1200
20x Robe Ledwash 600
80x URC speedbeam 105
