Metal music, black tees, devil horns, and . . . VIP lounge packages? We’ve come a long way since Woodstock. Last month’s Ozzfest meets Knotfest mega-metal festival in San Bernardino, CA featured dozens of metal bands, including Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot, Marylin Manson, Deftones, and Prophets of Rage. Four stages supported non-stop metal shredding with lighting and video provided by 4Wall Entertainment. Brighter than even the pyro were the 30 Solaris Flares in the lighting rig.
“Flares were the only choice,” says 4Wall Director of Live Events, Todd Roberts. “They pack a huge punch, and with so many artists we used them for a bunch of different effects. Their versatility is unsurpassed. We used them on all the torms and lined each of the straight sticks of truss, ‘framing’ the stage. We rely on Flares to give us just what we need and they never disappoint.”
Michael Keller was the event’s LD, and Ron Chamberlain was Production Manager. 4Wall Entertainment is a full-service company ,specializing in lighting and video.
