Outdoor Spectacles

Arcana have created some of the most exciting outdoor spectacles in recent years; and we love creating these large scale events. Connecting with your audiences, transforming spaces and immersing ourselves into the heart of the event.

We can devise, design, direct and produce all aspects of your outdoor or large scale event. We have created spectacles in stadiums, on race courses, in harbours – on water, on golf courses, in city centres, in castle grounds….

New Years Festival Dublin

The New Years Festival Dublin is one of Ireland’s biggest New Years celebrations that runs over multiple days in iconic venues across Dublin City. The NYF Dublin is an initiative by Fáilte Ireland , produced, and promoted by MCD Productions. Johnny Donnelly is the Creative Director of the event as Arcana were commissioned to create and produce the Midnight Moment countdown and are delighted to work with all three agencies to ensure that this event was successful.

Since 2017 Arcana have been creating the Midnight Moment countdown spectacle along with an earlier timed Special Children’s Midnight Moment countdown show.
Over the years Arcana have lit up Dublin City at the stroke of Midnight by creating spectacular lighting, laser and pyrotechnical performances on the Custom House Quays, on the river Liffey, Collins Barracks and Dublin Castle.

Past Midnight Moment spectacles have included Arcana incorporating into these performances everything from the latest Video Mapping technologies, laser technologies, pyrotechnics to floating a 35 piece live orchestra on the Liffey in the Customs House Quays.
