Ayrton ‘winds’ rock Luxembourg’s Rockhal Club


Every Ayrton aficionado knows its lighting fixtures are named after winds and high‐performance cars. Rockhal Club in Luxembourg is amongst the latest to have taken stock of Ayrton Mistral S and Levante S fixtures which were supplied to the venue through Ayrton’s Belgian distributor, FACE. Rockhal has two main venues amongst its rehearsal and creative studios: the 6000‐capacity Main Hall and the Club, which can accommodate up to 1500 spectators. “We have 20 Ayrton lights installed as permanent fixtures in our standard Club package, which is used by nearly all the artists playing in our ‘smaller’ venue,” says Daniel Robinet, production supervisor at Rockhal. “8 Mistral S and 8 Levante S are rigged in our top light package while the floor package is completed with 4 Mistral S.”


The choice of Ayrton Mistral S and Levante S was unanimous amongst the Rockhal Lighting Team which organised a shootout between different lighting brands with comparable fixture types. “This gave us the opportunity to rate the fixtures objectively and see how they measured up to the important criteria that we had laid out in advance,” explains Rockhal’s lighting designer, Tom Wagner.


“The biggest plus in the whole package proved to be the Levante, as it has all we want from a washlight, with added beam effects and barn doors. This gave us more flexibility for the variety of artists and shows that we receive in our club. “We decided in favour of the S version, because we don’t necessarily need the TC version’s higher CRI for our applications, but do need the extra output that the S version delivers.”
