Lighting and previsualizing an event on the scale of the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival is all about working with tight deadlines and even tighter spaces. Just 24 hours before 40 performers were set to take the stage at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island, New York, entertainment designers were jockeying for space at the front of house to prepare for the coming two days of music, from the festival’s lighting designer Tyler Littman, founder of Philadelphia-based entertainment design company Sholight, LLC, to the audio, video, and laser specialists, as well as artists’ individual designers. Introductions between these varying professionals were brief, as handshakes immediately turned into workflow and logistical discussions about how all the aspects of the show were going to come together.

The days were warm, the nights were cool, and the shows were hot at Rock in Rio: Lisbon. Over our week in Portugal, we worked hard and played hard, taking every opportunity to interview the lighting designers working at the festival.

When someone thinks about attending a service at their house of worship, their first thought probably isn’t about the visually spectacular production they’re about to witness. But that’s just where Seth Thiesen brings his skills to bear as a production and lighting director.
