Lighting Plots For Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show

Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show lighting design by Bob Barnhart

Lighting designer Bob Barnhart of 22 Degrees is no stranger to the Super Bowl. He has lit numerous Halftime Shows, sometimes in climates so cold he wondered if the lights would freeze. Luckily, the weather was nice on Sunday, February 3, 2019 as he scored big in lighting the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show featuring Adam Levine and Maroon 5, as well as rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi. Barnhart shares his light plots for this major concert that has to be built onsite in barely a few minutes in front of an audience, as well as the lighting fixtures and gear list from PRG, and lighting crew credits. Here's our “intel” on the 150 Intel Shooting Star Drones at the show, as well as our interviews with the lighting designer on the lantern festival and lighting design.
