LEGENDARY FESTIVAL, MEET VIDEO EXPERIENCE
When it comes to legendary music festivals, Pukkelpop in Kievit (Hasselt) is at the top of the festival food chain. The festival prides itself on having dug out a place for artists and audiences with an alternative fringe. It’s where great music and sensational bands go hand in hand with innovation, togetherness and a spirit that speaks to all generations. Organizer Chokri Mahassine has been the driving force behind it all since its early beginnings in 1985.
PKP TV: rock ‘n roll ‘n video
Pukkelpop’s organizing team turned to CK Productions to optimize the framework for video production at the festival in order to enhance efficiency and create more valuable content. After pitching our ideas in 2016, we took on the PKP TV project for the 2017 edition of the festival.
Taking live music online
PKP TV ties all its social media content produced on the festival grounds into one neat online package.
We created wonderful stories for Pukkelpop’s Facebook and Instagram, editing them on-site and posting them on the website as well. Facebook Live was another feature we introduced, much to the satisfaction of the visitors and crowds at home.
Our partnership with Pukkelpop only expanded from here on out, with CK Production being put in charge of all audiovisual production for the festival. We handle video production across multiple stages, projected onto iMac screens across the grounds. But wait, there’s more: the live broadcasting and distribution of audio and video content to external media partners is also part of the gig.
Straight to Your Living Room
For the latest edition of the festival, we called on our partners over at Proximus, a Belgian telecom operator, to help us turn PKP TV into a fully-fledged TV channel through Pickx, the operator’s brand-new online streaming platform. The broadcast goes live from the festival grounds, delivering exciting stories and musical highlights straight to the audience at home.
Together with NEP Belgium, our teams optimized the infrastructure used at the festival. And to top it all off, the different stages are now directed through a remote gallery, straight from the on-site media village.
Here’s an overview of our services:
- Establish a framework for video production
- Create, edit and distribute produced content across all social media channels
- Full audio-visual production of complex multi-stage event
- Live broadcasting of audio-visual content
- Distribution of audio-visual content via an online streaming platform
- On-site infrastructure optimization
Looking to the future
The possibilities for events like Pukkelpop are endless, especially with trailblazers at the helm. CK Productions will remain a fellow trailblazer, introducing and advising on the latest audiovisual innovations available that take the festival experience to the fringes of its potential.
We hope to see you there soon!
