Avolites, a world leader in the innovation of visual control systems, has made a spectacular return to Glastonbury festival, with nine Avolites consoles and four media servers deployed at 2022’s world famous event. Avolites products lit up nine key areas/stages, including Temple, Totem, RumShack, Bloc9, Theatre, Cabaret and Salon Carousel – whilst individual production teams brought in Avolites kit for additional performances on The Pyramid and Other Stage.
Glastonbury 2022 marked the festival debut for Avolites’ flagship console Diamond 9, its most innovative and advanced console range to date. The D9-215 controlled the lighting at Bloc9 East’s ICON, the epic monument which debuted at Glastonbury in 2019 and features a 65ft head as its centrepiece.
The Common, combining venues The Temple, Mez Yard, Rumshack and the new Totem, was largely powered by Avolites AI Q3 media servers, bringing to life performances of Emily Dust, Jelani Blackman, Lazy Habits, Enny, Grove, and many more. The new Totem area was lit up using a combination of an Avolites Quartz console, supported by a Titan Mobile Wing to expand the live performance space, and powered with a Q3 server.
On the other side of The Common, The Temple saw a range of spectacular lighting acts using an Arena console, powered by the Q3 server. The lighting of the infamous all night party at the Rumshack also trusted Avolites, and relied on the power and portability of the Tiger Touch II console.
“The Avolites team was thrilled to be back in the fields of Somerset and we are thankful to all those LD’s that adopted Avolites as their console and platform of choice to power their ultimate performances. It has been a great kick off to the festival season and we are looking forward to the upcoming performances lined up for this Summer.” said Paul Wong, managing director of Avolites.
