For this year’s Smukfest, the ROXX CLUSTER B2 FC was used on the festival’s main stage. Around 40,000 guests flooded the festival grounds every day to experience five days of performances by international artists across five stages.

Nordic Rentals, who supplied lighting for the festival’s main stage, Bøgescenen, chose to use 72 ROXX CLUSTER B2 Full Colour blinders.

The ROXX CLUSTER Blinder made its debut last year at Glastonbury Festival, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park and has since found its way to many stages in the world.

The LED blinder from ROXX imitates the DWE source of a traditional tungsten blinder but can be adapted to the artistic demands by switching off the “redshift” while utilising variable dimming curves and fade times.

At the same time, ROXX has created new possibilities with the Full-Colour version, making it possible to use coloured light for a blinder effect. The CLUSTER Blinder can also be used as warm light with an amber effect on the stage itself. Thus, there are possibilities with the same fixture and on a festival stage with rapid switches between artists, it offers opportunities to create a new expression that suits each performance without the need for a major reconstruction.

ROXX CLUSTER B2 FC got its name from the fact that it can be assembled into clusters both horizontally and vertically. The fixture is also waterproof, and after the huge downpours at Smukfest this year, the CLUSTER Blinders put their IP65 certification to good use.
