Hey guys, I need some help with live lighting. I work at a radio station (as some of you know) and we sometimes DJ live events. We're looking to buy lights for the live events, but unfortunately we've got fuck all idea about where to start.

I was wondering if any of you guys know anything about lighting and can recommend stuff to buy, or at the very least can direct me to some good sites that explain the basics of lighting equipment for such a purpose.

Our budget is about $1000 at most, and we can't have any sort of strobe lights because people will have seizures. Thanks in advance for help.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I don't know, but I'd imagine you need to buy a rainbow first.

I think we just need a fog machine to make a rainbow.

I usually ask for extra pickles on my burger, if I remember.

Get $999 worth of strobes and spend a dollar making a sign saying "Fuck epileptics, we wanna have fun"

Also what kind of pickles do you guys like? Brands? Flavors? Etc?

Sadly we would not get anyone into events if that happened.

Yes. Our music is so bad that our listeners get TBIs just from listeners.

Get a few par 64 LED par cans, a few scanner type lights with DMX control and a DMX controller, That way you can set presets or even control the lights in real time.

Par cans are getting cheaper all the time so in America you can probably afford to get a bunch but scanners are pretty pricey so if money's an obstacle that might hold you back, BTW I'm not talking out my ass I do work with lights and shiz.

EDIT: missed the budget on first read of OP, get like 4 par cans and a dmx controller and then see if you can afford the fancy moving lights, properly programmed par cans can make a fun light show all by themselves.

Just google DMX, it's pretty simple but it's how professional light shows are run.
(I'm sorry if you already know that)

And yes, I do enjoy pickles on my burger.
