A.C.T Lighting supported Clearwing Productions with MA Lighting consoles and Clay Paky Scenius spotfixtures for the 11-day Summerfest in Milwaukee.

The festival marked its 49th year with performances by more than 800 acts representing alternative music, rock, country, R&B, pop, reggae and more. Headliners this year included Paul McCartney, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton.

Clearwing Productions provided audio, lighting and backline across the Summerfest grounds. The company supplemented the festival’s lighting rigs on some stages and furnished full lighting rigs on others. Clearwing also worked with A.C.T Lighting to provide consoles across the grounds and in A.C.T’s Previs Suite.

Clay Paky Scenius spots made their debut at Summerfest 2016. Clearwing mounted a dozen fixtures on the Marcus Amphitheater’s upstage and midstage trusses where they augmented the spot rig for Pitbull, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton/Alabama Shakes, Tim McGraw and Blink 182.

A.C.T Lighting also provided MA Lighting control systems that served six of the eight music stages and the Marcus Amphitheater. Five stages had MA Lighting grandMA2 full-size or light consoles and one had a compact dot2. MA Lighting’s dot2 marked its second year at Summerfest where it saw increased interest from LDs who have become familiar with the desk in the past year.

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting and Clay Paky products in North America.
