3D-printed Pinkpop guitar: demo by Joost Vergoossen.

Op zondag 13 oktober, geeft muzikant Joost Vergoossen driemaal een demonstratie op de 3D-geprinte Pinkpop gitaar. Deze gitarist heeft een indrukwekkend CV. Zo speelde hij in de jaren 2000 en 2001 in de band van Ilse de Lange en was hij gastmuzikant bij Bert Heerink, Het goede Doel, Henk Westbroek & Youp van het Hek. 

Brightlands created a special 3D printed guitar in honor of the 50th edition of the Pinkpop festival.

For the first time in the history of Pinkpop, music sounded from a guitar that was printed using 3D technology. Guitarist Lars Ickenroth of the band Mt. Atlas wrote musical history as the guitarist during this innovative festival moment: he played this guitar during the opening act of the 2019 edition of Pinkpop on the Brightlands Stage.

In its efforts to increase brand awareness, Brightlands has been a Pinkpop partner since 2017. Brightlands created the guitar as a symbol of the collaboration with Pinkpop and in honor of the festival’s 50th anniversary. This guitar was a co-creation between artist and musician Lars Ickenroth, the 3D print community of Brightlands Chemelot Campus and Arons, a local music store.

In the run-up to Pinkpop, the 3D-printed guitar had already attracted a lot of attention when it was presented at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus. On this occasion, CEO Bert Kip presented this unique guitar to Jan Smeets, who then handed it over to Lars Ickenroth. After the opening act, the guitar also attracted a lot of attention backstage and was signed by several musicians such as Duncan Lawrence, Jett Rebel, Brian Fennell (Syml), Miles Kennedy (Slash), Mark Potter (Elbow), Barns Courtney and Lee Mailia (Bring Me the Horizon) and Lars Ickenroth (Mt. Atlas).

Music is frequency. Frequency enables science. To discover, understand and improve our world.
