MAGIC SKY – EYECATCHER AT MUSIC FESTIVALS IN MADRID AND BARCELONA
These roofs enable partying in all weathers. Sollik used the unique Magic Sky roof system at two popular Spanish music festivals in June 2018. The lighting effects and projections under the shields with diameters of up to 30 metres give every open-air event a cult character. The Paraiso Festival on the campus of Madrid University attracted 7,000 electronic fans. This year, the Primavera Sound Festival in the Parc del Forúm in Barcelona even reported a record number of visitors with 215,000 music fans from all over the world.
Spectacular 360-degree stage under the open sky
Magic Sky is a specialist for roof systems and suspended special constructions in Europe. The distribution in Spain and Portugal is handled by Sollik. We offer you a full service, ranging from the planning of the outdoor events, the planning of the stage shows, right through to the setting up and dismantling of the shield systems. Our longstanding local technical partner is responsible for implementing the lighting, audio and visual production on the giant projection area. The stage under the Magic Sky roof is playable all round, and makes open-air public and corporate events unforgettable experiences. The shields enable flexible use and are available in various sizes. Depending on the model, they can be set up in just five or seven hours.
Sollik combines German and Spanish event expertise
You simply have to experience the well-conceived roof system live to understand the enormous advantages it offers. The festival business in Spain has been running nicely ever since Sollik set up a Magic Sky pylon with a diameter of 18 metres at the in-house exhibition of its strategic partner Albadalejo in Barcelona. For years, the event professionals have been complementing each other outstandingly well in the planning and realisation of film events held in Spain. Now Sollik is also conquering the Spanish event market. Sollik’s event team has been working hand-in-hand with Albadalejo, one of the leading technical service providers on the Iberian Peninsula, for a long time. Andreas Sollik has not only built up branches in Barcelona and Madrid, but also a very good network of partners.
