We Day Canada Special Event

On July 2, Electric Aura Projects were a part of We Day Canada – a special Canada 150 event held on Parliament Hill in Ottawa that drew an estimated crowd of 14,000 to the show in Canada’s capital city. The show was also streamed to Facebook live, and showcased the signature We Day lineup of stellar speakers and performers for We Day’s first outdoor festival event.

Digital Dreams 2015

Electric Aura were the production designers for Bud Light Digital Dreams 2015.

Billed as “Canada’s largest electronic music festival”, the event was held at The Flats at Ontario Palace, Toronto on June 28 and we’ve just updated our portfolio to include a gallery showcasing our designs at the event.

Elements included in our production design were the Dreams Stage, Echo Beach Stage and the Bacardi Untameable stage, plus we also designed the site lighting for an integrated look throughout the site. The Dreams stage also featured an automated motor system so the stage could evolve from artist to artist.

Despite disappointing weather conditions meaning a fast design change on the fly after a large storm blew through, the event was a huge success – see the full gallery of pictures from the event in the Digital Dreams 2015 gallery.
