Bandit Lites Feasts with the Music City Food + Wine Festival


NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – The masses once again turned out for the Music City’s Food + Wine Festival for a weekend of tasting gourmet food, sampling fine wine and enjoying good company. Bandit Lites worked with C3 Presents and Jeff Wendt to supply more than 240 lighting fixtures and over one thousand yards of festoons for the outdoor revelry and gem of the Nashville food scene.

Created by Grammy award-winning artists Kings of Leon, C3 Presents, chef Jonathan Waxman and Vector Management’s Ken Levitan and Andy Mendelsohn, the Music City Food + Wine Festival took place over September 20 – 22 and featured more than 40 chef demos, a harvest night cocktail hour and Sunday morning gospel brunch. The Friday night festivities boasted a Friday Night Throwdown! where athletes and chefs teamed up for a happy hour party emceed by Kathie Lee Gifford.


Bandit Lites supplied the lighting for multiple areas across Bicentennial Park and Walk of Fame Park including special sponsored areas for Toyota, Smirnoff Seltzer and Guinness.  The soiree also featured a stage for performances from artists such as Chicago Plays the Stones and Cedric Sesley & Out For Souls.

Illuminating the spaces were Chauvet Accent LED lighting fixtures, Elation Paladins with Elation SixPar 100 IP and Illumipanels up lighting trees, lighting the Grand Taste Tents, DJ booth and other areas. ETC Source Four Pars lit the tents as well as Bandit’s exclusive GRNLite LED Par 64s. Towers were erected on 6th Avenue as well as an eye-catching, festoon bedazzled tower evoking visions of a sparkling may pole around which those in attendance toasted drinks and danced the night away.


Bandit’s crew consisted of Jalon Duncan, Chase Evans, Kaitlyn Feltes, Savannah Harden, Jessie Hochinyavong, Carter Hopkins, Ivy Reid and Vanessa Tuttoilmondo with support provided by Project Manager Matt King.
