Ben Inskip reflects on Pendulum’s Ally Pally show

The drum ’n’ bass legends return to the capital with a stellar live performance at Alexandra Palace. TPi chats to Show Designer Ben Inskip to hear about the creative backstory to this jaw-dropping one-off event.

With the band’s planned multi-night headline show at Brixton Academy having to move to a single night at Alexandra Palace at short notice, the Pendulum team had to act quickly to rethink the show design to fit into the historic venue. But despite the change of scenery, the band was still keen to make a huge impact. Having been brought in for the 2022 festival run, Ben Inskip – Production Designer from ARTDPT – has been working with Pendulum in the role of Show Designer for almost a year.
