FESTIVALS, HALLOWEEN AND TEMPORARY EXPERIENCES

All of these experiences have a single thing in common: they are only available for a limited amount of time. Fueled by the ‘fear of missing out’, this also means that demand is often high, so optimal utilization of the available space is key.

We design these experiences in such a way that they are very intense and immersive as you only have limited time to create meaningful memories that will last a lifetime.

Festival Design

Our design approach to a festival is to view it as a pop-up theme park. There are many similarities between designing a theme park and a festival but there are even more differences.

We masterplan the venue to accommodate immense crowd levels to navigate the different themed areas (often related to musical genres). We dive deep into the brand identity of the festival and make sure that all art-installations, flags and banners are fitting to the overall festival identity.

EDC: Kinetic Energy

Insomniac

As Leisure Expert Group celebrated their 6th edition as Insomniac's official design partner, they created a masterplan and designed the experience that guaranteed the perfect guest journey at world’s biggest pop-up theme park.

Show Design

At a stage event it often happens that guests are looking at the same stage for an extended period of time. To ensure that this will never become a boring view, we try to design the show around multiple worlds (themed lands) that we project on the stage.

This design philosophy also reflects in the use of special effects build up tension and only at the closing ceremony, we make use of all effects and fireworks simultaneously. It enables us to surprise visitors of the festival even the very end of the event.

Stage Design

To us, a stage is the most important storytelling element for any event. It serves the purpose of making the performing artists shine, yet it also needs to serve the overall festival theme and allow for exciting and surprising show elements.

For all stages that we design we take these elements and merge them into one. We ensure that all light, pyro and screens are integrated into a scenic beautifully designed stage.
