Ayrton is proud to be part of Eurovision Song Contest


Ayrton is delighted and excited to reveal that its MiniPanel‐FX, Huracán‐X and Karif LED lighting fixtures will form a major part of the lighting design for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest which takes place at the Ahoy Arena, Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Lighting designer Henk‐Jan van Beek of Light‐H‐Art design has chosen significant numbers of each fixture for the main ambient and effects lighting for this annual music extravaganza. The full requirement of Ayrton fixtures – 386 in total ‐ will be supplied by Eurovision 2021’s lighting, audio and rigging supplier, Ampco Flashlight. The stage design for Eurovision 2021 by Florian Wieder is being kept under wraps for now, but those in the know at Ampco Flashlight have hinted at a wall of MiniPanel‐FX which they describe on their Eurovision blog (www.ampcoflashlight. com/nl/esc) as ‘a cute little fixture that is fierce and powerful” ‐ and that’s just for starters. “The reputation of Eurovision is unquestionable as one of the best global productions there is,” says Ayrton’s Michael Althaus. “To have Ayrton fixtures showcased on it is testament to the regard in which lighting designers hold our products. We are very excited to be involved once again and I can’t wait to see Henk‐Jan’s design and the fantastic plans he has for our Huracán‐X, Karif and MiniPanel‐FX. This is a ‘first’ at Eurovision for Huracán‐X and Karif, and as for MiniPanel‐FX, I say ‘watch your backs!” The load‐in started on 10 April under the supervision of Erwin Rintjema, Eurovision Song Contest’s Head of Production for broadcaster NPO, NOS and AVROTROS.
