Provo, UT – This Independence Day, for the 8th consecutive year, AVI-SPL’s Creative Show Services team joined one of the biggest patriotic celebrations in the country – the America’s Freedom Festival in Provo, UT. The festival dates back to 1870s. The signature event is Stadium of Fire that takes place on July 4th and has been ongoing for the past 33 years.
The event attracts an average of 40,000 visitors from all 50 states and in addition, it is televised to more than 1 million military men and women around the world via American Forces Network. This year the event was sold out and reached 65,000 spectators.
While the rest of the country was celebrating, we were behind the scenes, making sure that everything goes as smooth as planned. AVI-SPL, as a proud owner of catalyst media servers, provided all media control-playback equipment. We also created all lighting and visual elements that were projected during the entire Stadium of Fire. Those included creative designs for the performance of Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson, who headlined the event, as well as for pop star Carly Rae Jepsen and the acrobats from Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil.
The celebration culminated with breathtaking fireworks, said to be the largest stadium fireworks show in America.
