PRG at the MTV EMAs


The 24th annual MTV EMA took over London’s epic SSE Arena, Wembley, on 12th November. 

The evening’s celebrations included awards presentations and world class performances from some of the industry’s biggest music acts. 

PRG provided all lighting for the prestigious event but the real workhorse of the night was PRG’s own Icon Edge; 132 fixtures in all. Lighting Designer was Al Gurdon with operators Alex Passmore and Jonathan Rouse and crew chiefed by PRG’s Rich Gorrod.

On the red carpet PRG provided lighting, rigging and video production. The Lighting Designer was Stuart Pring, with PRG Crew Chief Sam Healey and Head Rigger Q Willis. 

PRG Head Of Event Services Rich Gorrod oversaw all event planning and delivery on the night. He said: “The extensive rig came together in just two days thanks to stringent prepping by the warehouse team in Longbridge and expert assembling by our great crew on-site. It’s a great team effort that works brilliantly”.

Hosted by Rita Ora, the production included voiceovers from Capital FM DJ Roman Kemp. Show highlights included a Shawn Mendez performance, with a rotating pods backdrop, and VI6K’s in the floor of the arena for optimum visual impact. Having the whole rig on Kinesys provided optimum versatility to close down performances in spectacular fashion.
