Eurovision Song contest 2021 and the Italian pride of XTYLOS
The Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) was held this year at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam on May 18 through 20 and 22, 2021. We all know that the stage had been redesigned and that the ESC 2021 organizers had decided to maintain last year's technical setup, as the event was cancelled due to the pandemic. More than 480 Claypaky XTYLOS fixtures were specified and were the key fixture to illuminate this year’s show.
Marcus Graser, Claypaky CEO, took part in the event and says:
“We have been looking forward to this event, not only because it’s fun, but because we trusted it could represent a fresh start and a clear reminder to all of us of how much we love shows and how lighting not only illuminates stages, but sparks emotions.
I was not sure I could remember how it felt to participate in such an event, but when the show started it was even more powerful than I remembered!
After most probably the toughest year yet for the world of entertainment, the Eurovision Song Contest has been an extremely important milestone for me - we can start looking to the future of entertainment with renewed hope, and we can be confident that the world of events and entertainment is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
In this specific occasion the Claypaky XTYLOS granted an excellent performance and they proved to be a perfect fixture not only for live events , but also for live broadcasting.”
XTYLOS stands out for its performance and reliability during the performance and proved to be an unrivaled compact and fast fixture. Because of its innovative technology, XTYLOS is extremely energy efficient.
