Electric Aura designed the lighting for the highly successful Canucks Autism Network REVEAL Gala fundraiser, held at Rogers Arena on June 9th. With a unique set of requirements drawing on both the team’s experience in lighting large sport and stadium venues, as well as creating a polished elegant atmosphere for gala clientele – the Electric Aura Projects team were a natural choice to transform the Vancouver Canucks’ home arena into an immersive St Tropez and South of France experience.

Another successful Canada Winter Games has come and gone. The Electric Aura team was proud to be working once again with PRP providing Production & Lighting design for both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
The Festival is over for another year and it was a huge success. Jason McKinnon was engaged again to be the Lighting Designer which encompassed over 81 acres of festival grounds. With 4 stages, 4 unique areas, many VIP activations and massive grounds to be lit it was a huge undertaking with over 6 months of pre planning. Artists such as Bruno Mars, Eminem and Arcade Fire were the headline bands but there was so much more to experience than just one main stage. LED lighting and over 8000 feet of festoon were strategically placed throughout the site to continue the stage vibe across the entire festival grounds which certainly created a pleasant atmosphere as you wandered across the site at night.
