Effect Lighting: Lose Yourself In A Multicoloured World


You now have the chance to recreate your very own Creamfields by using some quality effect lighting. Multicoloured laser lights can help to set a galactic scene wherever you are; be it a house party, a rented town hall or a city nightclub. Getting loose and lost in a field of multicoloured lasers is a favourite past time for so many people – from the 90s Ha├žienda crowd right up to 2015 ravers in Glastonbury’s Dance Tent.

There’s something magical about wading through artificial smoke and bright effect lighting as the music pumps. Lights and music are a match made in heaven, it doesn’t matter how big the venue is because if you get the correct balance of good people, good lights and good music, it can seem like you’ve been transported into the best nightclub in the world.

That said, the majority of us are never going to be able to completely replicate the scale and standards set by the stage lighting at popular music festivals. The space, resources and expenditure just isn’t there to go toe to toe with the big boys, but that shouldn’t discourage you from having your own vivid experience. Some of our very own effect lighting can transform a plain room into a cosmic cauldron of colour. And unlike the big stage lighting used at large music events, 99% of the effect lights are lightweight and easily carried around.

If you are hosting a party then you have to bear in mind the duration of how long effect lighting can stay on for. There’s restrictions on how long you can keep certain lights on for, this is particularly the case with strobe lighting because general rules state that there should be no more than 4 flashes of light per second. Guidelines are there to protect the health of people who are photosensitive or suffer from epilepsy. Double check with your guests that they are happy and be aware that not everyone can cope with powerful effect lighting all night long.
