Arcade Fire — European Festival Tour

—Summer 2017
“Arcade Fire and Moment Factory joined forces to take European audiences on a unique musical and visual experience.”

They called upon Katie Wilson of Depth of Field to bring several concepts to life on their bespoke stage.


“Moment Factory designed a set that augments the dimension on stage with unexpected multimedia effects orchestrated inside a “smoke box”. 
The 11 meters long and 3 meters tall “smoke box” conjures life-size optical illusions and surprising scenes with an automated LED screen, lighting, lasers and pyro smoke effects. It's a mesmerizing combination blurring the line between this reality and another.” 

Katie was assigned several concepts from day one, including the epic moment for "Ready To Start" consisting of a chaotic night sky and custom star particles that slowly ascends into an organized dome, referencing vintage set designs from the 1800’s.

In Situ

“If their tour resembles what Barcelona saw on Saturday night, it won’t be so much a matter of Arcade Fire being ready for the arenas, but if the arenas are ready for Arcade Fire.” –Philip Cosores [Consequence of Sound]
