Lighting

  • We have trackscans, scanners, spinners, sweepers, strobes, lasers, hazers, and trusses and trees to hold it all.
  • We introduced our light show at the Wakarusa 2005 Festival. Since then we've more than doubled the number of moving lights!
  • Note: the Photon Connection Light Show is designed for dancing!!
  • For the deluxe system, plan a dance area of at least 45 feet by 35 feet. For the full system, we require 6 hours to set it up and 3 hours to take it down. This is a really big system!
