Quantum were asked to supply an epic pyro finale that would entertain the entire crowd for rock legends Metallica and their Reading and Leeds 2015 headline slot.

The band delivered a set full of the classics topped off perfectly by a spectacular pyro display to ‘Enter Sandman,’ finishing the set in style.

Just when the crowd thought the song was over, lead singer James Hetfield gets them going again, and with a roaring “Yeah” a burst of 200ft crackle mines towered over the crowd. The band played the famous riff and final chorus, followed by a spectacular display of red, blue and silver comets, with gold and silver crossettes as the band took their final bows.

Quantum were awarded ‘Best Visual Spectacular’ at the Festival Supplier Awards 2016 of this display. Judges commented that we had captured the true spirit of the festival with our effects.
