GDLuz: Let there be light in Guadalajara

The hugely successful GDLuz again wowed visitors with the colorful 4th edition in 2020, drawing nearly a million and a half festivalgoers. Produced by our longtime partner AlteaCorp, a design and production firm specializing in multimedia shows and events, GDLuz takes over Guadalajara’s Historic Center (Centro Histórico) every year in a celebration of the city’s anniversary and culture. A multitude of breathtaking audiovisual attractions is installed over 2 km within the downtown district. Various live artistic performances, as well as multimedia presentations, delight festivalgoers throughout the evening as they move at their leisure through all the dynamic installations.

Solotech, a trusted partner

Building on 6 years of collaboration, AlteaCorp. once again relied on Solotech’s unrivalled audiovisual and entertainment technology expertise to produce the festival’s flagship show. Under the direction of the talented Lighting Director Renzo Cubas, who works at the famous Hakkasan Nightclub in Las Vegas, this unique audiovisual performance experience has been presented many times to enthusiastic and amazed crowds. Renzo doesn’t hide his enthusiasm for being able to express himself creatively at GDLuz:

“This festival not only provides the opportunity to display my talents as a Lighting Director and artist, but it also allows me to share my love and passion for creating live visual experiences. This type of event will forever change the way audiences view and appreciate LDs.”

By combining the purchase of new and used equipment, AlteaCorp. was able to realize considerable savings without affecting the quality of the performance. Thanks to Renzo’s great talent and Solotech’s high-quality equipment, festivalgoers had a sensational experience that they will not soon forget. Pierre Vendé, a Senior Business Developer at Solotech, is particularly proud of this innovative project:

“I am delighted that Solotech has been a partner of AlteaCorp. for several years and that their creations have been so successful. The vision of Marcos Jiménez, President of AlteaCorp., for these kinds of shows combined with our own excellent technical support allows for the creation of incredibly cutting-edge events.”
