FOMO Gets Creative
Posted on Friday, January 19th, 2018
Fomo Festival began in Brisbane in 2016 as a “one day – one stage – zero timetable clashes” event. 2017 saw it expand to three states purely based on demand and in 2018 they added “Fomo By Night” in Melbourne. The festival’s International Headline Artists included Californian based RL Grime, Hip-Hop and Dance sensation Kaytranada and the Grammy acclaimed ZHU amongst others.
Creative Productions took on the East Coast Lighting and Video production elements working alongside JPJ Audio. Whilst FOMO kicked off at the River Stage in Brisbane, the Sold Out Sydney event in Parramatta Park took the largest production package.
Creative Production’s video team installed a massive 12m wide by 8m high LED wall as the backdrop to the stage with an additional 5m wide by 8m high IMAG screens flanking the main stage. There was several video floor packages that were rolled in as required as well as a four camera fly away production system.
Lighting for the event saw both MA lighting and Hog platforms at Front of House, with GLP GT1’s, X4 and X4L washes and JDC1 strobes, Ayrton MagicPanels and MagicBlades, Lightsky X-Beams and Aquabeams and TLC RGBW Storm LED Strobes. Dimmer and Distro land was packed with the new LSC GEN VI dimmer racks.
Production for Fomo was predominantly toured from Creative’s Gold Coast Office with rigging and additional production support from the Sydney team.
