Axwell^Ingrosso Dream Bigger with HSL


HSL supplied a large floor-and roof specials lighting package – over 180 fixtures – which was specified by show designer Andy Hurst for Swedish DJ duo Axwell^Ingrosso’s banging set in the Steel Yard. In addition to overseeing the show’s general visuallity, Andy worked closely on a lighting design with Dan Robinson who programmed and operated lights for the show, while Andy ran over 100 lasers which were supplied by ER. Axwell^Ingrosso’s set entailed a complete new roof lighting system installed and this was a build from the ground up and incuded: 54 x Claypaky Sharpies, 68 x SGM Q-7 LED strobes, 24 x Martin MAC Viper Profiles, 8 x MAC Viper Washes, and 32 x 2-cell Moles. All the A^I video content is very filmic and relevant to the narrative of the performance, so it was essential to the look and feel of the show to have clear site lines to an epic 28 metre wide LED screen upstage. Eighteen sections of HSL’s pre-rigged truss were used to construct six chevron trusses that were flown over the stage and the design ensured that as many fixtures as possible could be traveled in these sections for speed and efficiency. The two audience trusses for the previous night’s show were taken down from their points running parallel to the sides of the Steel Yard and reconfigured as a giant V, presenting an inverted version of the Axwell^Ingrosso logo with the apex stage centre. Onstage, an A frame truss behind the DJ booth was populated with 112 x 3.5 Watt Kinekt lasers – 54 per side – mimicking the A^I logo, with a 30 Watt standard laser rigged in the apex of the audience trusses that could fill the space in between with a laser ceiling above the crowds.
