A SOCIAL ARENA
At the highest point of the festival grounds a large wooden construction, Northside Arena, invited people to rest at daytime and party at night. By lighting the construction from dusk to dawn the Northside Arena not only became an internal reference point for the visitors but also a beacon for the entire Northside Festival, visible from large distances.
DANCE WITH ME
The Arena was made of 48 wooden columns each containing four integrated LED panels, creating a more than five meters tall cylinder with a diameter of 10 meters. The LED canvas of Northside Arena was controlled by Kollision’s MAP software connected to two lidar sensors creating an invisible plane right above people's heads. When the plane was reached and activated by visitors waving and dancing with their arms in the air, the entire lighting design waved and danced together with them, creating a colorful and dynamic environment inviting more people to join.
OUR ROLE
Kollision developed the concept together with representatives from Northside and Down the Drain Productions, who also built the Arena. We handled lighting design, sensor interaction and programming. LEDs were provided and installed by Martin by HARMAN.
