Stage theming

To celebrate the anniversary, we wanted to add an enormous cake into the stage design yet not have the stage look boring. This is why we decided to produce a very large LED cake, which we could change into any image with simply a press of the button. To stay in the Alice in Wonderland vibe that signatures Nocturnal Wonderland, the end result of the stage was the LED cake in the middle, surrounded with a house of made of Alice in Wonderland themed cards and flanked by 2 giant chess pieces.
