Future Music Festival



Lasers on the move: ER Productions hits the road with The Future Music Festival.


40,000 miles, 7 crew, 5 cities, 4 artists, 3 stages and 3 tonnes of gear. Going on tour takes a lot of planning!

That’s the exact challenge that ER Productions rose to when creating spectacular lighting effects for The Future Music Festival in Australia. Held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide Perth since 2009, the event has attracted some of the biggest names in dance music.

ER Productions provided laser effects for four artists at the 2015 festival – Avicii, Drake, Knife Party and the Prodigy – using strong single beam effects to add a new dimension to each performance.

Back-to-back festivals are an intense environment to work in, and require expert teamwork and efficiency.

In order to create a smooth transition process between concerts, ER Productions sent an advance crew with Beamburst lasers the night before each gig, to ensure everything was rigged well before the next show kicked off.
