Bumbershoot Music Festival

  • PROJECT TYPE Projection Mapping

Bumbershoot is a gem of Seattle stemming back to 1971. Showcasing all things art in the Pacific Northwest scene.  

It was a beautiful thing to see the water fountain lit up every night with our blend of projection mapping and live video from the Fisher & Stadium Main Stage.

 
 
 

THE PROJECTIONS


The International Fountain is massive and a core component of the Seattle Center. The projected visuals needed to be top notch.

We took it there by projection mapping a live video feed from the Fisher & Stadium Main Stage onto the fine watery surface.

It was spectacular. It was clearly visible from 360º and became a visual landmark for the Festival each night. The near holographic projections also gave a beautiful viewing location for families and others who would like to enjoy the performance with more space such as the ADA lounge.

In addition to the water fountain there was a grove of trees that say the light of night with each leaf contributing to a larger than life visual show.

We had the pleasure of getting to project amazing live performances from artists such as Odesza, Flume, LORDE, Andrew Bird, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Explosions in the Sky and a theatrical and truly rock and roll performance by Billy Idol. 

 

THE FESTIVAL


Each night was packed with a wide range of musical entertainment on the Fisher Green Stage.

This vibrant 3-day gathering has many branches to offer: music performances on many different stages of all genres, various art showcases, comedy, galleries, food, and a wonderful backdrop.
