About the New Horizons Festival

New Horizons is an EDM and dance music festival in Nürburgring, Germany. Aiming to create seven festivals in one, the futuristic dreamland hosts over 150 DJs from across the dance music spectrum. Its debut lineup saw areas of this Kingdom hosted by brands such as Q-Dance, Armada, and HYTE, who were joined by artists including Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Chris Liebing, and Brennan Heart.

So, alongside the music, New Horizon’s site was filled with creative art installations, quirky performers, and many more surprises. It created an incredibly unique festival experience for those lucky to enter its gates.

Role of Backbone

Backbone International handled the technical production and overlay management for this production. So, we added a new part called the ‘semi-arch’ this year. This piece was the decor part in the middle of the stage that masked the LED screen. It was lifted with a crane into a position where the chain hoists from the stage took over the piece from the crane. We lifted the semi-arch vertically once the crane was detached from the piece.  With the chain hoists from the stage to the marked position. We also had to place the clock by lifting the LED behind the clock to the correct position, and after that, the decoration commenced.
