ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
The Friends of Amstel LIVE! and The Flying Dutch joined forces for a one-off outdoor festival called The Flying Friends of Amstel LIVE! The unique party, with equally unique decor, took place in three Dutch cities at the same time.
As the indoor version of this concert has been defined by the iconic chandelier for years, it was crucial to have a copy made of it for the outdoor edition as well. This is exactly what the ShowTex team is good at!
Using no less than 1800 m2 of DekoTaft, each stage was equipped with its own chandelier of 17.5 by 16 metres, fully confectioned in the ShowTex workshop. Great job, as it allowed faster and easier installation on-site.
The flame-retardant event fabric was beautifully lit by the many spots incorporated in the enormous chandelier. On top of that, the subtle gloss and luxurious feel of the budget fabric made sure the set looked like a million dollars!
To prevent people from looking inside the chandelier, a black PolyStretch P8 CS Matt was mounted above the stage lights. This versatile event fabric stretches seamlessly up to 5 meters wide and will not tear nor fray without finishing. The perfect fabric for a sleek result.
An inventive system of adjustable walls made sure that all ran smoothly behind the scenes as well since 300 m of Easydrape filled the backstage area with temporary fabric walls and dressing rooms. This modular pipe & drape system is easy to handle by one person ensuring a quick and easy installation.
An impressive set full of event textiles and hardware that can easily be reused in a next show!
