After the success of their program launch the Adelaide Festival asked if the Hearts effect could be re-configured so it could be automatically lit and supervised every night for the duration of the Festival as a feature at the Artists Bar venue.

Live Element designed and manufactured a new fuel and control system to enable trained operators to light the effect as required during the Festival. The burner elements had to be re-worked to enable them to burn outdoors in all weather conditions. Similar to the Program Launch, we arranged for LPG storage licenses, statutory approvals and fire safety audits and also assisted with the venue risk assessment process.

Once installed, commissioned and tested, we provided operator training and assisted with the nightly supervision of the effect as required.

The Flaming Hearts became one of the iconic pieces of the 2010 Adelaide Festival.
