The outdoor festival “Tante Mia Tanzt” is the largest electronic music festival in northwest Germany and this year attracted some 20,000 visitors to Stoppelmarkt Park in Vechta, Lower Saxony. Featuring DJs such as Don Diablo, Felix Jaehn, Lost Frequencies, Monika Kruse and Wildstylez, the one-day event presented an outstanding line-up after a two-year hiatus. Eventures GmbH was responsible for the outdoor festival’s technical equipment. Lighting designer Milan Spira relied entirely on Cameo moving lights for the electric show, including the new Cameo OTOS® H5 Hybrid Beam Spot Wash.
To enhance the special atmosphere of an EDM festival and to digitize the overall image, Milan Spira and VJ/visual artist Paris Yilmaz of Clubkind Visuals largely dispensed with physical set elements and decoration. To fill the inevitable “gaps” in the set design, Spira specified a large number of beam lights in advance. After a discussion with NicLen, DryHire’s supplier, the lighting designer opted for the new Cameo OTOS® H5, among others, giving the hybrid moving heads, beam spot wash with IP65 rating, their premiere at the festival in Germany.
“I am a fan of hybrid fixtures, and the OTOS® H5 is perfect for this festival,” Spira explains. “It allows me to cover all lamp types and use more of the same fixtures, which makes it easier for me to operate, especially in a festival with many different shows and needs.” In addition to the high light output, Milan Spira is also convinced by the gobo set and color quality of OTOS H5. The lighting designer had good experiences in the past with the Cameo OPUS® H5 Beam Spot Wash indoor hybrid moving head.
In addition to the OTOS® H5s, ZENIT® W600 SMD outdoor LED wash lights and EVOS® W3 compact LED wash moving heads were also used at the festival.
