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.

Nick Whitehouse creates shows for artists like Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, and Britney Spears, and even though he designs for some of the biggest names in the music industry, his approach to lighting is focused on the little things. “When designers compete to be the brightest in every show, people’s eyes get tired," he says. "You have to take a step back and let the artist shine.” With this artist-centric design philosophy, forward-thinking techniques, and the help of Vectorworks Spotlight software, Whitehouse has made a name for himself as a chart-topper in the world of entertainment.
