Jason Bullock runs Wiz Khalifa’s Coachella show with ChamSys

Wiz Khalifa’s performance at this year’s Coachella festival was lit by the rapper’s longtime lighting designer Jason Bullock, using a ChamSys MagicQ MQ500 desk, supplied by Upstaging, to run the 90-universe show.

 

“The Sahara Tent at Coachella was primarily EDM acts,” Bullock explains. “Since Wiz brought the entire band with him, I decided to make the show completely different than the other acts by going in the direction of a more classical rock show. Our set, which was designed by the team from Nimblist, made it easier to create this kind of look with its band risers and large center gate. We also had a powerful video display from Screenworks NEP that covered the front of the set.”

 

Bullock controlled a universe of Catalyst to send multiple outputs to the video surfaces on the set. “My whole show was punted,” says Bullock, who ran all the FX, video and lighting. “Even right up until showtime at Coachella there were still alterations to the set list.
