EPCOR DRIVE-IN CONCERT SERIES
‘Coming Together – While Staying Apart’
EPCOR employs over 2,400 hardworking people and each year, holds a special Employee Event to show their appreciation for not only the employees but their families as well. To host nearly 3,000 people in a heavily restricted pandemic seemed almost impossible.
With the creative minds of the event and tech production teams, this event would become a fun, interactive drive-in concert series! Partnering with AHS, 4 shows safely took place over the span of 3 days, supporting local entertainers and performers.
An SL-260 stage was brought in with outdoor led wall screens flanking each side. Drone cameras, crane cameras and multiple HD cameras caught unique angles of stage performances and speakers as well as great crowd engagement. High quality audio was reinforced on stage while an FM transmitter sent the signal out to each guest’s in-vehicle radio.
Emcee, Jesse Lipscombe started each outdoor show and local talent, Dancing Cree, Derina Harvey Band and Scenic Route to Alaska kept the crowd entertained between thank you messages from EPCOR Executives. Numerous interactive pieces were planned including the infamous, “Wave for the Frontline” with Edmonton’s largest horn and hazard light waves – symbolizing the collective gratitude for Edmontonians who are working the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. Excellent entertainment, crystal clear audio and great sight lines made this event a positive experience for each attendee.
