Star Events has released a vibrant video highlighting the company’s work for British Summer Time Hyde Park (BST) as the festival stretched to accommodate Roger Waters’ massive Us + Them performance, the first of its six sell out shows this summer.
With Waters’ production requiring more than 1,000m of LED screen, 110 tons of production and no performance box, Star redesigned the entire Great Oak sub-structure and super-structure, increasing the width of the stage by 20m.
Shot by video production and promotion company, In The Bag, under blue skies, this unique look behind the new scenes focuses on the Star team building the Great Oak, panning across the Vista hospitality structure, the Barclaycard Stage, brand activations for Barclaycard and Samsung, the main entrance arches and site wide overlay:
Roger Barrett, Special Projects Director at Star Events, comments: “To achieve what Roger Waters needed, while still enabling the other five major BST Hyde Park shows, was challenging to say the least.
“This film is a stirring document of Star working with a promoter committed to providing the very best for artists and audiences.“
