Since 1823, carnival has been an integral part and the happiness-inducing attitude to life in Cologne. For the anniversary season 2023, the Academy of Cologne Carnival organised a special festive evening with well-known and new artists, as well as various well-wishers in the ballroom of the Flora.
Our festive lighting concept for the façade of the Flora, as well as the long red carpet in the entrance area, provided the right setting for the event right from the start.
We paid special attention to the smooth technical flow, which is particularly important for events of this kind, in addition to good sound for the music and high speech intelligibility. Artists with the most diverse requirements for interfaces to the sound and stage technology have to be brought on stage safely and ready for operation in the shortest possible time. There are often no rehearsals, as carnival bands in particular move from stage to stage in the evening and thus often only appear shortly before their performance. The stage programme was visually supported by a powerful projection system. Here logos, pictures, etc. were played in to match the programme item.
