Basel Tattoo – Open air in Basel Barracks - anniversary show

Basel Tattoo is celebrating its 10th birthday. So it is pulling out all the stops at this year’s live show. For the first time ever, and especially for the anniversary show, Winkler implemented a giant projection measuring over 50x15 m for Basel Tattoo on the outside of the barracks. The four projectors that did the work are the size of small cars and are currently the brightest projectors in the world. Winkler brought a total of around 58 tonnes of material to the event, including 135 microphones, 85 loudspeakers, 400 spotlights, over 4.5 km of fibre optic cable, and 531,000 watts of electric power.

In the club, various DJs stars from across Switzerland heated up the crowd with new music.
