Pori is a city in Satakunta, Finland, and Porispere is their very own three day rock festival, held annually around Kirjurinluoto’s Lokki-lava (The Seagull Stage), since 2011. The festival’s main focus is in rock and metal music, with a more family friendly Sunday afternoon line up. The line up is international.
I acted as the head lighting designer of Porispere from 2012 to 2016 for Orjatori and Ruosila. I designed all of the stages, and took care of technical production of the lighting and video. I also operated the main stage, and worked as the lighting crew lead 2014 – 2016. Porispere taught me a whole lot about designing, producing and running a festival main stage lighting rig. It was a challenge for a young designer, but also turned out as a big success.
