The Creators Project Lights Up Coachella
Light, art and music came together this past weekend at Coachella, to create several epic performances and help reinvent the music festival for thousands of attendees. The Creators Project gathered a team of artists, filmmakers, musicians, and designers to construct multimedia art installations on the grounds and took on the daunting task of redesigning the Main Stage and Sahara Dance Tent.
Probably one of the more prolific moments in Coachella history was Arcade Fire’s finale. Over 2,000 balloons dropped onto an unexpecting crowd who were singing in unison along with the band to ‘Wake Up’. For those who attended, it was a nearly miraculous moment enhanced by the illuminiated LED balloons dropping from the sky. Under a full moon in the middle of the desert, concert goers became part of something much larger than anything they expected.
