Broadcast live on Fox from the 65,000-seat Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL, Super Bowl LIV featured Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in high-octane performances at the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show. One of the most technically challenging productions of the year, with production design by Bruce Rodgers of Tribe, Inc. and lighting by Bob Barnhart of 22 Degrees, the design scored big, including a special lighting experience by PixMob. Barnhart shares the light plots, lighting gear list (most of which was provided by PRG), and the lighting crew list.
