A new event and entertainment space, Nightscape, is slated to open up this fall in the old 12th & Porter location in downtown Nashville.
The transformative event and entertainment space will use built-in 360-degree 3D projection mapping and other sensory elements including surround sound, customizable lighting, unique scents and more to envelop guests in real or imaginary worlds and environments. The idea is the brainchild of entrepreneur Mike Weinberg, who has spent nearly his entire life in the entertainment industry from his early days as a child actor, to his teen years creating and running his own lighting and DJ company in L.A., and his career at CAA following graduation from the University of Michigan.
“Projection mapping is a visual catalyst to create amazing events and experiences,” says Weinberg. “It’s not just a one trick pony, but rather a platform that will redefine how people can see, create, and recreate inside physical spaces. We’re excited to bring this to the market and grow in an industry that has so much potential. When the building became available, I knew it would be a perfect fit for the first location of Nightscape. 12th & Porter has such a rich history as a concert venue in Nashville and putting in a creative concept like Nightscape seemed like such a great way to pay homage to that history while creating a really modern, state-of-the-art venue to carry the space forward,”
Nightscape will offer ticketed public events that will be announced via an online calendar. All private events in the space will be facilitated by a partnership between Nightscape and local events company, Infinity Hospitality. The creative content arm, Nightscape Studios, will be responsible for developing and producing opportunities with brands, bands, artists, chefs, and other creatives looking to take advantage of Nightscape’s unique capabilities.
