The Fortress of Dreckburg at the gates of Salzkotten (Germany) recently celebrated its 650th birthday with a classical music evening, a gala night and a pleasant programme of side events.

Clay Paky Alpha Beam 300s and Alpha Spot HPE 300s were found among the lighting equipment. Two Safex Twin Fog Generators saw to a continuous fog effect on stage, while two 24 2.3 kVA MA Digital Dimmer-Racks and a MAJOR 63A – 8 HAN current distributor guaranteed the necessary electrical power supply in the Dimmer City under the stage.
The organizers also used 8 CP Color 150-Es to illuminate an old barn, which hosted an exhibition that recounted the history of the fortress.
