GLP impressions again turn Orange into Green at Roskilde Festival

16.08.11

Following the energy-efficient formula, first implemented at Roskilde in 2009, the low consumption of GLP’s impression LED range was again in perfect harmony with the ‘Green Footsteps’ programme of Denmark’s largest music festival — on a vastly increased scale.

Production substantially ramped up the number of GLP LED fixtures, so that this year the main Orange stage boasted no fewer than 174 impression 90 units and 48 impression XL, presenting the house and incoming LD’s with a vast colour palette from which to set up their cues.

There was a vast demand on the inventory of Danish based rental company, Comtech, who also supplied the lighting systems for other stages. This included new generation GLP products such as the impression Spot One — with 24 designed into the rig on the Odeon stage alongside 56 impression 90’s, while a further 36 impression 90s lit up the Pavilion stage.

The lighting design was again in the experienced hands of Comtech manager Lars Nissen, supported at FOH by Thomas Brockman.

Said GLP director Kasper Gissel, “GLP has enjoyed an increasing involvement in the Roskilde Festival since 2009, when we first started supplying the event to help keep the energy consumption down. This year we provided them with almost 350 impression fixtures.

“One notable change this year was that the Odeon became the first Roskilde stage ever to run 100% on LED fixtures — and they are uniquely from GLP.”

Roskilde’s 2011 edition once again presented an all-star line up headlined by Iron Maiden, Strokes, Kings Of Leon and Arctic Monkeys, with up to 110,000 people attending on each of the Festival’s four days.
