Robert Juliat added some French flavour to the celebrated Spanish music festival at Cap Roig, Girona this summer.
Local rental company ABS Entertainment Service supplied two Robert Juliat Merlin 2500W and two Robert Juliat Aramis 2500W followspots as front of house support for the duration of the two-week event.
The festival originated in 1927 when it began as an art and architectural and music show. This, the sixth edition of the festival in its present form, ran from 7 July to 22 August 2017 in a site spread over 17 hectares of gardens, complete with castle. The line-up of singers and bands included Anastacia, Passenger, Silvia Pérez Cruz, Norah Jones, Wilco, Woody Allen, Els Amics de les Arts and The Pretenders.
Merlin and Aramis are two of Robert Juliat’s most popular followspots and the team from ABS rigged two of each on front of house towers for maximum effect. From here, Merlin and Aramis were put through their paces and showed themselves able to cut cleanly through the lighting from a large rig of moving lights and haze, demonstrating their extreme capabilities and proving perfect for the job.
“Followspots are an important part of the show and many artists request Robert Juliat products,” says Iker Gartzia of ABS. “We want the best for our clients and know that when we use Robert Juliat equipment there will be no problems with the show.”
“Both Merlin and Aramis made such an impact at the Cap Roig due to their spectacular and excellent performance,’ says Diana García, marketing manager at Entertainment Equipment Supplies (EES), Robert Juliat’s exclusive distributor for Spain. “The performance of the RJ followspots brought into focus the commitment of ABS Entertainment Service and Robert Juliat to true quality. It is been great to team up with them for such great project.”
