Out and About Robe Radio One’s Big Weekend Londonderry, NI


2 Lighting Londonderry for BBC Radio One’s


2013 BIG WEEKEND


A substantial lighting rig featuring over 150 Robe fixtures was used by ‘house’ Lighting Designer and TV Lighting Director Tim Routledge to create a production design for the 1xtra / In New Music We Trust Arena at BBC Radio One’s 2013 ‘Big Weekend’ event.


Ebrington Square, Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland, began the start of the UK festival season with BBC Radio One’s 2013 “Big Weekend” event. HSL Group supplied the lighting equipment while PSI provided all the rigging and support for the stage. These two companies who have recently merged now offer even more comprehensive rental operations throughout the whole of the UK and Ireland.


Tim Routledge has over the last 12 months been the lead lighting programmer for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the London Olympics and Paralympics and for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert.


The design had to be flexible and deliver something more diverse than the standard festival lighting package.


Using the existing Star Events’ structure at the stage end of the auditorium, he needed to create two completely different looks for the two very different brands – 1xtra and In New Music We Trust Stage covering musical genres from hardcore EDM to Thrash Rock to Hip Hop.

Routledge comments, “The LEDBeams are very versatile. I have used them for rock bands and also as side lights for theatre shows. They are quick, very reliable and look particularly good en masse”. The fixtures included 32 Robe LEDWash 100s, 54 LEDBeam 100s, 24 MMX Spots and 22 MMX WashBeams – all from Robe’s ROBIN range. Moving lights were arranged on and


around six vertical trussing towers onstage that were linked to four overhead ‘finger’ trusses cantilevering out over the audience.


Routledge controlled all lighting. This featured strobes, generics, LED fixtures, other moving lights and 12 special custom Patt2013 retro luminaires with big dish reflectors which he has designed - from two grandMA2 consoles.
