Bocatec Lasershows und Eventtechnik

All posts in Big Events & Concerts

From 13th to the 16th July 2017 the contemplative city Neustadt-Glewe prepared for one of the biggest events of the German festival scene – the Airbeat-One 2017. Because of 45.000 visitors from 45 nations which pilgered this time to the electronic music festival near Schwerin. For 150 acts from more than 20 nations and of course also for Bocatec and our party laser equipment that meant: “To light up concentrated energy over three days!“

For the team of Bocatec the Airbeat One is almost a home run, nevertheless we are amazed every year again, how the makers are doing it – for 16 years in a row now – to put the party to a new level and always beat the impressions of the prior year. No wonder that year after year more electronic music fans come to Neustadt-Gleve in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to celebrate.

Only the best of the best

The main topic this year on the  airfield area was „United States of America“. With an unbelievable  130 meter of width and 45 meter of height the huge main stage rose above the party crowd in shape of the Capitol in Washington D.C, this was perhaps the largest stage ever seen in Germany. This monumental main stage was thus only one of the highlights, that we enlightened with our laser show technics. Another four areas with different American themes attracted the visitors. No matter if Las Vegas, an American Indian world,  the bunjee free fall tower, the big wheel, the biggest mobile pool of Europe (1400qm) or tasty burgers at the USA food court, the “American Dream” became true at the AirBeat 2017. 

Of course the makers presented also in terms of the line up the best of the best. The top acts were Armin van Buuren, Hardwell and Tiesto. Additionally Emok, Boris Dlugosch, Oliver Heldens, Andy Svge, Liquid Soul, Brennan Heart and many more were on stage. From Goa up to Hardstyle for every taste there was something that fitted. Dances all night, crazy people, booming basses, to this a spectacular laser and pyro show with all special effects that we could dream of – that’s the way we like to work!

We are looking forward to the Airbeat-One festival 2018, that will take place from 11th to 15th July and that will guide us to „Great Britain“ this time. Who likes sumtuous stage dessigns, great light shows, mega laser shows and of course a never-ending line up of the top acts aus from the Techno and Elektro scene, should now buy his or her ticket now.

The 17th of October 2015 the HanseMesse in Rostock trembled for the first time at the Electric Sea Dance Festival. The smaller brother of the big Airbeat-One Festival attracted thousands of party people to come to the biggest hall in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania. Together with Music Eggert, GoPlus1 and the light operator Sebastian Heise, Bocatec could set off a lot of fire, pyrotechnics, CO2, confetti and laser to make the crowd uproar.

The decision between the three dance floors wasn’t easy for the dance-crazy people. A total of twenty acts appeared on stage and on the turntables and revived the passed Airbeat-One summer. As headliners the megastar DJs “Fedde Le Grand” and “Moguai”were in the lineup. Another main act – “Headhunterz” made the crowd freak out. But what would the party be without the suiting light effects and a great surrounding show? Only the visual effects send the revelers to a higher party dimension.

Bocatec and other experts on site cared for this. Bocatec brought up the big guns with 40 watt laser equipment for a giant laser show. Pyrotechnics of course was also ready, over 150 pyro effects were shoot by Bocatecin the form of jets, comets and fountains. For fiery sixteen gas projectors produced shiny flame balls and hot flame columns . Fizzy CO2 Power Shots  by Magic FX took the cake. For the real festival feeling Bocatec fired masses of confetti and streamer all over the place into the cheering party crown. The confetti stadium shots were fully demanded. Music Eggert cared for the other light effects. Furthermore there was a huge LED screen. That is how event technics rocks: fire up a lot of special effects and celebrate a great show together with the worlds famous DJs.

Lasershow begeistert 5000 Pferde-Fans!

Die ausverkaufte Ostfrieslandhalle war am 31. Januar 2015 voll besetzt. Fast 5000 Zuschauer freuten sich in Leer über einen Show-Abend der ganz besonderen Art mit Strahlkraft weit über Ostfrieslands Grenzen hinaus. Dieses Jahr war die Lasershow von Bocatec das krönende Highlight der 4-stündigen Mega-Show.

Programm-Mix für Groß und Klein

Das Programm hätte locker auf mehrere Abende verteilt werden können. Der

Galaabend der Pferde

ist jedoch schon seit einigen Jahren ein Event der Extraklasse. Neben Pferdeflüsterer Jean-Francois Pignon trat Tiertrainerin Anne Krüger mit ihren indischen Laufenten auf gefolgt von Einradweltmeister Lutz Eichholz. In klassischer Dressur kamen natürlich auch die Pferde nicht zu kurz. Eine Hunde-Show mit den Space Dogs, ein Puppentheater, eine Pony-Verlosung und Musikeinlagen durften nicht fehlen. Ein wirklich bunter und vollgepackter Abend.

Eingesetztes Material

Mit fast drei Tonnen Material war die Gala auch für Bocatec ein Schwergewicht.

12 RGB-Vollfarblaser

, 4 Highpower Nebelmaschinen, 1 MDG-Hazer, 18 Flamer mit 8m Flammensäulen und diverse Pyrotechnik packten die Veranstaltungstechnik-Profis ein. Movingheads und P5 LED-Fluter, sowie der alles steuernde Phoenix-Showcontroller durften natürlich auch nicht fehlen. Drei Bocatec-Lasertechniker waren mit Aufbau und Show anschließend beschäftigt.

Endlich was für die Jungs!

Die viele Arbeit lohnte sich zum Glück wirklich. Die Gäste waren völlig aus dem Häuschen über die riesige Lasershow, besonders die männlichen Besucher waren begeistert. „Endlich mal etwas Tolles für uns Männer!“ meinte ein zu Tränen gerührter Zuschauer nach der Lasershow. Als Höhepunkt der gesamten Pferdegala wurde Bocatec gelobt. Der Veranstalter von World People hatte solch ein geniales Laserevent nicht erwartet und engagierte Bocatec prompt für das kommende Jahr als Lasershowexperte.

For the second time Bocatec boarded the cruise ship „Mein Schiff 2“ for the turn of the year 2014/2015. TUI Cruises engaged the event professionals from Hamburg for a bombastic surprise New Year’s Eve performance. The laser show already thrilled more than 2700 people on the open sea in 2012. The complete crew and the ship vibrated over its length of 260 meter when Bocatec switched on the laser projectors.

The 29th December „Mein Schiff 2“ cast off from the harbor in Dubai to start the cruise through the Emirates. Until the 5th of January the captain navigated the jumbo through the Mediterranean Sea. Abu Dhabi was just one of the many spectacular landing points of the New Year’s Cruise. For the night before the 1st of January 2015 TUI planned something special for the cruise guests. Therefor the Bocatec team mounted all the show equipment of 1200 kg the day before in a heat of 35 degree. The stuff had been shipped via air cargo and ship to the location. The team installed 13 RGB

laser projectors

, 4 High-power

fog machines



and the

Phoenix show controller

. In addition 800m of cable were laid. But the show was not yet saved. The

laser show

was tested the night before at 3 am so that the guests won’t see the show. The tension didn’t even stop the 31st December, because the permit for the laser show was a long time coming. Finally at 6 pm the flight safety of Dubai gave the go-head for the

New Year’s Show


Shortly before midnight everyone cooperated: 26 sea miles away from Dubai the captain went to tailwind course, so that the fog machine could support the laser beams. The crew counted down to zero and the

laser show

banged the ship travelers into the New Year – much more beautiful than a firework. Also the perfectly warm weather spoiled the revelers with 25 degree. No wonder that the party boiled over until the early morning and the guest, full of positive energy and excitement will for sure talk about the

laser show of the year

for month.

To the delight of Bocatec the captain allowed film shots with a drone for the first time. A unique

New Year’s Eve laser show

on sea, what more could one want?

The christmas market opening in the Hamburg Hafencity became the right dramatic finish by Bocatec in 2014. The rousing ice skating show under the art direction of “Les Lionnes” gave the start signal for the popular christmas market goings-on. Bocatec framed the 8-minute show with suiting pyro technics and laser show.

The spectators and invited guests inside the Audi lounge observed thrilled and magnetized the fascinating show on the ice. Light, dancers, ice and fire melted together to a total work of art. The ice skaters embodied good and bad in a very artistic way and danced to emotional music. The two days of technical building-up and programming were thus worth it – the audience was visibly enchanted by laser beams, fog, music and professional ice dance. On the whole 8 fog and wind machines as well as 7 laser projectors were on site. Some even glared with 25 Watt over 100m distance from the old Hafenamt across the Überseeboulevard to reach the ice stage. A very special opening show, that gives the christmas market in the Hafencity once more a cult status.

The 1st November over 8000 dance-crazy people celebrated on 5 floors in the sports and congrass hall in Schwerin the 30th jubilee of the Pioneer Alpha Festival. Bocatec opened up the biggest indoor event of northern Germany with a fantastic laser show. 50 national and international DJs and Live Acts powered until 8am in the morning.

Opening and Live-Laser-Show

Full-power-color laser projectors in combination with exciting fire and flame effects produced goose bumps atmosphere during the time and sound travel through 15 years of music history. 13 show lasers with around 250W white light power shined syncrounous to the music as laser show through the hall. 8 flamers with up to 7 m high flames and 4 high power CO2 shooters by Magic FX fizzled dramatically over the stage. The light was added by Sebastian Heise alias “LJ Shadow”, he supportet the Bocatec show quite well. Bocatec used its pro fog machines and hazers and wasted 120 liters of fog fluid, 600kg CO2 gas and 25 liter flame gas. Controlled was the whole programmed show via the Phoenix Showcontroller.

Historical Line-Up

Initiator of the Pioneer Alpha, the media consult Eventmanagement and the Ostseewelle HIT-RADIO Mecklenburg-Vorpommern prepared a time travel through music for the guests. The best acts of the last 15 years performed. Full 14 hours long the party crowd experienced electronic music of all styles. FRom modern EDM, House and Deephouse sound over Oldschool Trance, Hardstyle, Hardcore up to Hands Up-Tunes all was in. In the huge main hall techno legends like Westbam, The Disco Boys, as well as the young wild “Gestört aber Geil” and the northern german House Rockerz, the Ostblockschlampen with their hot stage show thrilled the crowd. With the “old” hits” of Live Acts Northern Lite or Brooklyn Bounce the audience traveled back in time.

Legends like Tom Novy, Kai Tracid Marusha, Talla 2_XLC as well as Taucher and Mellow Trax continued. Further highlights were the bigger goa area, several drink specials, tombolas and the Pioneer DJ area for the young DJs.


Bocatec was happy about the big excitement of the organizer Mike Hasemann. A sea of celebrating and happy party guests enjoyed visibly the music and the multimedia fireworks made by Bocatec.

The Summer night shopping attracted thousands of visitors the 26th june to come to the city of Tulln. But not only the great program from 4pm on and the special offers in all the shops allured the mass, in the evening the biggest laser show of Austria „made by Bocatec“ thrilled the crowd completely.

„It was just so touching and even more beautiful than the laser show in Singapur“, explained an employee of the UNO at the main square to Harry Schinnerl, one of the organizers of the big event. Two politicians of the city made the event possible: Ludwig Buchinger (TOP) and Harald Schinnerl (TVP) spered no effort and animated 120 retailers and pubs to take part. It should be a „collective party of the Tulln people“. The overwhelming and positive feedback conceded the point that Tulln needs such a mega event from time to time. Besides the fire show, bull riding, large slide, goal wall shooting, bouncing castle, bagpipe players and a basketball show, in the evening the highlight and center of the summer night shopping got all the attention – the huge lasershow by Bocatec.

Preparation for the laser spectacle

Bocatec traveled from Hamburg to Lower Austria to build up the laser material in only 6 hours. The 8 RGB white light laser machines and the 6 outdoor fog and wind machines were put up in a blink with the help of a 30 m crane. The eve before the organizators got a taste, while the Bocatec pros tested the show. After that the summer night shopping could start.

And the show can begin

The district supervisor Andreas Riemer, who authorized the laser show on the main square was also present on site and saw with joy how the colored laser light dream rose up. The audience forgot their bargain buys and snips for seven minutes and stared stunned into the night sky of Tulln. Such a show nobody had seen before in this dimension. The expectations were surpassed by far. Visibly overwhelmed the summer night shoppers demanded more and loud „We want more!“ calls resounded over the square. Bocatec played of course again six minutes of the great show and enjoyed the good feedback. After the fulminant laser show the group „Wiener Wahnsinn“ played austrian pop music. This put the heated crowd into super mood to dance and sing. The dismounting was then done in lightning-speed, after 2 hours the Bocatec guys went home again – possibly record-breaking – like the show itself.

Since 2002 the Airbeat One attracts more and more electronic fans to come to Neustadt-Gleve in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. From 17.-20. July 2014 also Bocatec was part of the sold out festival on the airport area amongst the 20.000 guests. Two nights long the Bocatec lasers let the party crowd freak out.


The Airbeat One is known and popular for its elaborate stage designs, great light shows and of course for its neverending lineup of top-acts from the techno and electro scene! Also 2014 the organizer Music Eggert engaged a brute array of stars of the electronic dance music: Tiësto, Afrojack, Nicky Romero, Sebastian Ingrosso, Ummet Ozcan, Marcus Schossow, Danny Avila, Neelix, a showcase of Dusted Decks and Steve Aoki with his label Dim Mak. Headliner Tiësto rose from a scene pioneer to a worldwide superstar, he was elected “The Greatest DJ of All Time” by the Mixmag magazine and #1″ DJ by Rolling Stone. No wonder that the tickets were sold out in no time.


On up to 11 floors, open air and in circus tents the party crowd celebrated almost around the clock. But before the teriffic show could start, Bocatec was working a lot for the “Laser Beam Factory”. The head of the company Trang Bronsstaged a impressive lasershow, controlles by the software Pangolin Thousands festival visitors didn’t stop dancing and enjoyed the long party weekend in Neustadt-Gleve. Over 150 bottles of CO2 were shoot during the grand stage shows. 2015 the organizers plan already an enlargement of the Airbeat One – we are curious and will be in on it!
