BST Hyde Park

© Jan-Petter Dahl

We had the pleasure of joining both the ‘kings of folk’ and the ‘kings of pop’ in Hyde Park for BST 2016. Having worked closely with both Mumford & Sons and Take That before, it was a great opportunity to help bring all the energy of their touring productions into two unforgettable festival performances.

Mumford & Son’s rockier folk vibes where translated via a light catching confetti hit, a Pyro Waterfall for track ‘Dustbowl Dance,’ and a handheld marine flare that was carried by Marcus Mumford as he ran down the B Stage and in to the adoring crowd.

Take That put on a true pop production that saw special effects in 7 of their 21 songs played. These consisted of four major confetti hits including bespoke multi-coloured butterflies that fluttered through the air, multiple pyro hits ranging from 30 – 60ft high, and eight flares that filled the sky with atmospheric red smoke.

We also supplied a hefty amount of heat with flame bars lining the stage edge, G-Flames, and 10 x flaming staffs that were wielded by dancers during tack ‘Relight my Fire.’

Both bands ended their headline slots with tailored displays of aerial pyrotechnics that shot in to the sky for a fitting finale. Check out our blog post to see more of the action in detail or watch our showreel of the event below.
