The Movistar Arena underwent complete refurbishment and renovation which sees it re-open with state-of-the-art facilities to stage multiple sporting and entertainment events.
They wanted a lighting spec that would be acceptable to international artist riders
Robe moving lights were chosen and these are a huge part of the house lighting rig, provided by Medellin based rental company Linea Estrategica, this includes: 60 x BMFL Spots, 60 x MegaPointes and 84 x Spiider wash-beam moving lights.
“The fixtures are very good – fast, well built, versatile with lots of features, lightweight, great colour mixing …their reliability and quality are ideal for a scenario like the Movistar Arena installation where they will be worked hard.” – Conrado Santamaria (Linea Estrategica owner / CEO).
The main challenge was overcoming the scale of the renovation… originally built in 1973, this was the Movistar’s first large scale renovation and complete refurb so Linea Estrategica supplied audio, video and rigging as well as lighting.
As well as hosting some of the best and most popular Colombian bands – in a country with a rich music scene – plus key artists from all over Latin America, Colombia is now being visited with increasing frequency by international performers on their world tour circuits.
As so many of riders do actually request Robe fixtures, this venue is now very much on the map… and with its new renovation can offer LDs and programmers a powerful and flexible array of creative tools.
