With over a kilometre of festoon lighting Lighting Designer Andi Watson, turned to Specialz to come up with a system that would minimise breakages and simplify rigging. Three full size scenery carts were loaded with plastic bins and as the lighting rig was lowered the festoons were coiled into the plastic bins. Teflon coated bulbs also helped in preventing breakages. Such is Specialz attention to detail the boxes were light blue, the same colours as the bands favourite football team. Additionally, Specialz designed and built 12 quad frames, to take four Martin 2k's which were flown on a a Kynesis motorised system.
