|Born in the heart of Copenhagen in August 1996, IN Discotheque quickly gained popularity among clubbers, becoming the trendiest night-club in Denmark. Moreover, it is unrivalled throughout the country in what it has to offer: 12 non-stop opening hours over the weekend, from 11 p.m. to 10 am, and until 5 a.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays. DJs and live bands, such as most famous Danish group Aqua, perform regularly. The idea of promoting a "Free Bar", an overnight success with the clientele, has made it stay open three days a week since the start.
The philosophy behind IN discotheque is to create a centre of pure entertainment, with acrobats, fire dancers, fashion shows, choreographic events and theme parties, such as the famous "Foam Party", where you dance immersed up to the neck in soapy water; alternatively, there's the lonely hearts party, the "Invasions" party or the so-called "Gods Kitchen".
However, after five successful years after manager Dennis Friis and his partners decided on a huge refurbishment costing about 1 million Euros. The lighting system was upgraded with almost 60 projectors, including mobile bodies, scanners, graphic effects projectors and dance floor effects. The entire lighting system was designed by Clay Paky and installed by Highlight, Denmark.
Dennis Friis : "I made the right choice, as the light shows that we provide every evening have always been really appreciated. The Clay Paky projectors have also proved reliable over time, and have never given me any problems; this is crucial when working intensively four nights a week."
The recent installation included Stage Zoom 1200, Stage Color 1200, Stage Light 300, chromed Stage Color 300, Astroscan, Mini Scan HPE, Astroraggi Power, Atlas, Display Line V.I.P. and CP Color 150-E.
Most of the projectors were installed on three Prolyte octagonal trusses above the main dance floor. The Stage Colors 300 were positioned at the front of the stage, and the chromed version was chosen for its smart design and ability to colour the stage with countless shades. The Astroscans were fitted on "lifting" systems inside the stage, to enhance the multi-directionality of the light beams. The Mini Scans HPE illuminate the smaller dance floor.
The V.I.P.s create a kind of luminescent starry sky on the disco ceiling. Furthermore, the CP Colors 150-E, designed for outdoor use, tastefully colour the building exterior.
