2016 Johnson Family Dubstep EDM Christmas Light Show

Published on Nov 29, 2016
CHECK OUT OUR NEW 2017 STAR WARS LIGHT SHOW: us-tv.org/tv/video-4thVCspAfK4.html
The video barely shows the 8 light cannons (Spot Lights) that are super bright in person. In addition, there are several elements that are never even in the video because everything is just spread so far apart (e.g., the 12 Snowflakes that are one of my favorite elements barely are shown in the video). If you have a chance, come see it in person if you are in the South Texas (San Antonio/Austin) area!
All Elements were designed, fabricated, and configured by Living Light Shows (www.livinglightshows.com). Check out the website if you have a commercial venue and want a kick-butt light show or elements to do one yourself!

More about the show:
We were a contestant on Season 2 of ABC's "The Great Christmas Light Fight"!
The Johnson Light Show is a Dubstep EDM Hip-hop themed Christmas light show in San Antonio, TX.
Started in 2013, our show is not your traditional light show! There are no inflatables, characters, blow molds, or other "traditional" elements. Even the music is not traditional Christmas music; it is a custom sound track composed of Dubstep, EDM, hip hop, movie clips and even our children! The result is an exciting show that feels like a dance party! Even the lights are not traditional, we use Pixels which are similar to what you would see in a stadium Jumbotron. Each pixel can be controlled individually and set to any color and intensity. This means many more effects than what can be done with Christmas lights! We hope you like our show, thanks for visiting!

  • I'm not upset that you built up with 'Deck the Dubstep' but dropped with Skrillex ... but I'm upset. :(

  • Pointing focused lights at the sky is a very bad idea. I hope no aircraft were nearby.

  • Name Of Song At 0:30 ?

  • great music ! sound good

  • Man I want to see it were do you live

  • imagine how lit a christmas party there would be

  • Can't imagine the time and effort this takes, super impressive. That said, I think 2015 was much nicer. It was clean, lots white space, but had symmetry, and most of all still felt "Christmasy" (even with dubstep music haha). This felt like an exercise in how many lights can be hooked up and connected to the most chaotic (busy) dubstep possible. and more like Vegas than Christmasy. Still. really fun to watch though! Are there books or sites online that offer a primer on how this is all done? Id love to learn more about it.

  • Good show, but I like the 2015 light show better .

  • Skrillex ooooh yeah baby😍😍❤️😂

  • im late gonna watch the vid now

  • what's the music used in 0:50 ? after he says "S S SAN ANTONIOO"

  • To program something like this, you're better of programming your lighting sequence and run timecode, this way, all you have to do is hit go, then the lighting console triggers sound tracks and lx cues at the same time

  • Like that tune -TRS-Records

  • Wonderfull ♥

  • Love the snow flakes. Sometimes the simple things are the most effective.

  • Song 00.55?

  • hi, program Vixen 3?


  • This is amazing how could you program it so perfectly.

  • amazing, I also like the snowflakes with great work, could you kind tell me how did you do it?

  • De nuevo Pentakill y Fisrt of the year? En 2015 ya las usaron :'v

  • 2:54 what's song ?

  • Oh it's a compilation !


  • Bonne soirée de

  • cool

  • I live in San Antonio, and I saw this,and my reaction was jaw dropping and I almost cried just to see this at the zoo, ( wonder what the animals were thinking when they had this on ?)

  • Matt, are you controlling your spot lights with light o rama? If so can you briefly explain this process. I understand the Rgb component but how do you control the moving portion? Thanks so much. Sammy

  • Oh, Hooooo I have no words to express how incredible creation. Salute from east to west. If you may have time for vacation please visit to my home town here in the most northern part of Thailand. Be my guest. May God Bless all of you.

In the mean time , great work. Thanks for sharing.

  • Is this real or CG? If real WOW...

  • Basically a rave at this point

  • @Johnson family. love your light shows. I've watched and waited for the Christmas lightshow every year. How do you program your lights to match the music? Also, you hear the music on youtube with the video of your light show, but when people come to view it in person, can they hear the music too, or is the music just for the youtube video? Thanks for putting these on youtube. Merry Christmas.

  • One word WOW

  • and me, with a yellow light in my garden :( Only my keyboard have a led lights :v

  • how do you do this i know its alot of work and money but my dad really wants to do it and dont know who to ask have any suggestions
