Bandit Supplies Lollapalooza Site Lights

Bandit Lites provided more than 400 fixtures to encompass Lollapalooza's Grant Park site and structural lighting.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – Bandit Lites is honored and humbled to once again work with C3 Presents, providing the site and structure lighting for the fourth year in a row at Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grant Park.

Working closely with C3 Presents Production Manager Tyler Crain, Bandit Lites successfully illuminated the multitude of structure locations for all the signage, entryways and archways throughout the 319 acre park. Highlighting the VIP and Platinum ticket holders’ environment, Bandit supplied 6800 feet of festoon lighting accenting the lively environment. 

Bandit Lites also provided more than 2050 feet of truss and more than 400 fixtures to encompass the festival. By using Bandit Lites exclusive GRNLite LED Pars and Batten, Bandit covered the landscape in a multitude of colors, and supplied the lighting system for the Merchandise Palace, KidzPalooza Disco tent and the Perry’s sign.

The sprawling festival requires the coordination of the highest degree, with dozens of structures and more than seventy locations placed throughout the waterfront park. Power distribution and cable layouts for landscape lighting are an important part of the load-in execution. Bandit Lites Project Manager Jimmy Hatten built upon previous year’s layout and recalculated the hook-up needs to allocate every piece of cable for packing for the specific areas throughout the park.

“Working with C3 Presents personnel Brandon Sossamon, Senior Production Manager, Alison Ray, Production Coordinator, Shawn Worlow and Labor Coordinator and our direct Production Manager for the site lighting Tyler Crain is something I look forward to every year,” said Bandit Client Representative Shawn Lear. “These professionals make the process a delight and with solutions that makes moving forward a breeze.”
