Kendal is behind Glastonbury Festival’s incredible laser show around the Arcadia Spectaculars spider

TWO Kendal-born light engineers took part in Glastonbury Festival 2022 creating an incredible spider web laser light show.

Danny and Owen Mason of Reach Lasers & Special FX created the incredible show as part of the festival around the giant fire-breathing spider Arcadia Spectaculars.

Hailing from Kendal, the two brothers and business partners have become well known in the industry for their amazing presentations.

Company founder Danny said, “It’s such an honor to work with what I consider to be the best stage and most visually stunning show in the dance music industry.

“Using super modern fiber-bundle diode technology, we are able to produce beams of light visible for many miles with less than 200 watts of power consumption for a 32,000 mW color laser device, which matches perfectly to Arcadias’ vision for sustainability at their events.’ A total of 21 lasers were used, rigged by a team of 6 from the Leamington and Coventry area.

“The show was streamed entirely live throughout the festival for artists including Carl Cox b2b Chase & Status, Calvin Harris, Camelphat, Kurupt FM, Sub Focus & Dimension. Our next stop with Arcadia Spectacular will be at Valley Fest in the beautiful Chew Valley.

“it’s a family festival with lots of daytime activities and you are encouraged to bring the kids.

“We were doing Kendal Calling a lot and working as stage managers. We haven’t done much in Cumbria for a little while but are still interested in working there.

“We originally got involved with Glastonbury as we worked for the company that supplied the bars and we put on the light shows.

“It went from there.”
