Sep 2017 | Weeze | Q-dance
Q-BASE was introduced in 2004 as “The international dance festival”. On a former RAF-airbase in Weeze, Germany, thousands of party goers from all over Europe come together to experience Q-BASE. Apart from the location, Q-BASE uniqueness is that it is a day and night festival. The festival lasts for 14 hours long. At Q-BASE not only hard style and hardcore is played, there is also room for new and less common music categories.
Backbone was involved in many aspects of the Q-BASE production for client Q-dance. We began the load in period the 2nd of September and the production took place on the 9th of September. Weeze, Germany is a unique location because it’s right next to an airport, which causes logistical challenges. By utilizing machinery during specific operating times, we were able to deliver our client their exact wishes. Bad weather didn’t stop us from delivering a strong, sturdy surface for the audience to walk on – 5000m2 wooden floors – to be exact.
We had 7 of our men working on the following aspects of Q-BASE: Head of Production | Risk, Crowd and Services Manager | Technical Producer | Overlay Manager | Head of Machinery | Show Technical Producer | Technical Designer
