Elite Event Technology provided a complete AV production solution for the five stages and various activations at the Spilt Milk Festival, held mid November in Canberra. VuePix Infiled screens dominated the production with over 290 LED panels being used across the two main stages.
This has been the third year that the Elite Event Technology team has provided production for Spilt Milk. The festival draws audiences from all over Australia, with an impressive track record of completely exhausting all tickets in 18 minutes for 2016, followed by a record-setting 9 minutes for 2017. This year’s line up of the sold-out monster event featured both Australian and overseas acts like Angus & Julia Stone, Peking Duk, Young Monks, The Wombats, Vera Blue, RL Grime and many more innovative music and visual artists.
The Stage 1 featured two IMAG screens, consisting of 33 VuePix Infiled ER4.6 outdoor panels each. The visual centrepiece of the stage was created by additional 45 VuePix Infiled ER4.6 panels, set up to compliment the various artists performing at the stage. Content was managed and optimised by 2 Novastar MCTRL 4K Senders and 2 RGBlink X1 Scalers.
The main screen on Stage 2 consisted of 90 VuePix Infiled E12 panels, creating perfect visual backdrop for the acts. The IMAG screens set up on each side of this stage featured an additional 90 ER4.6 panels in total. The content was controlled by Novastar MCTRL 4K Senders, a VuePix Infiled T7e Sender, and three RGBlink X1 Scalers.
The lighting on Stage 3 was controlled by a ChamSys MagicQ Stadium console. Acme lighting IP rated MultiPARs 400Z were used on the Bacardi activation stage.
