The Vectorworks crew attended the Rock in Rio: Lisbon music festival last summer. Partnering with Production Resource Group (PRG) to provide Vision previsualization services to the designers lighting up the event’s five nights of performances, we also took time to document the construction of the fest’s stages, talk with the bands’ lighting designers, and see the power of Vectorworks Spotlight and Vision software in action.

Bruce Rodgers, founder and president of Tribe, Inc., designs entertainment events ranging from awards ceremonies and music festivals to political conventions and television shows. But perhaps the biggest of these events, and certainly one of the most viewed, is the NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show. Producing a live show on such a grand stage, and especially with famous headliners like Coldplay, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars, takes expert timing, a skilled team, and the right tools. Luckily, Rodgers has all of those things and the experience to bring them together.
