Nick Jevons utilises CHAUVET Professional at Terminal V festival

Terminal V Festival celebrated its 10th edition which took place in April 2024 at the Royal Highland Centre.

Taking their V2 Stage and turning it into a 360-stage, making it “unrecognisable from years gone by.” The team at 19MIL, which designed the V2 Stage and the adjacent Terminal Stage were aware of how important lighting would be to making both stages come alive. Nick Jevons, Lighting Designer, was enlisted to share his vision for the V2 Stage and the Terminal Stage.

Working in Depence 3, Jevons created 3D renders of his design to share his vision for the two stages.

At the Area V2 Stage, Jevons had 20 CHAUVET Professional PXL Bar 16 motorised battens and 16 Color STRIKE M motorised strobe/washes supplied by Marc Callaghan and his team at Liteup. He arranged the batten units around the bi-level central video screen that surrounded the DJ booth, and used the Color STRIKE M units to frame the video screens in the four corners of the room.

“I chose the fixtures to match the energy of music and festival — and they didn’t let me down,” said Jevons, who brought in Auratecture to run the Area V2 Stage.

The light show contributed to the vision of creating a closer connection between the performers on stage and the crowd. Whilst the PXL bars made the DJ booth pop the bold light from the corners of the room funnelled attention on the performances.

At the Terminal stage, he relied on 20 COLORado PXL Bar 16 to make the video screen stand out against a hard-edged background to create greater audience interaction.

“I had 10 of the PXL Bars line the top of the screen and 10 line the bottom,” he said “They were the main element of my design in this setting.”

For the 40,000 fans who turned out for Scotland’s largest EDM festival, the two stages offered an opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of performances.
