The Blackouts has been the most successful LED show act in Switzerland for ten years. They blend captivating music, dance, acrobatic elements, and original light effects with the latest LED technology to create breathtaking shows. For a decade now, their performances have brought a sparkle to the eyes of the audience.

Whether it's corporate events, exclusive celebrations, or large public gatherings – an LED show by The Blackouts is the best choice for any event! With their custom-tailored show concepts, they offer a modern way of communicating with the audience. As a highlight, images, logos, or even texts can be integrated into the show, conveying personal messages.

Now they have continued their success story: The Blackouts were part of this year's season of «Das Supertalent» and reached the final. The TV show gave them the chance to showcase their talent to an audience of millions on television and win the hearts of many new viewers.

It all began at the gymnastics entertainment event in 2014 hosted by the Turnverein Flums. Four friends from Walenstadt presented their first show featuring LED suits. Following the performance, they received their first inquiries, leading to their initial appearances in Switzerland. In 2016, they showcased their talent on the SRF show 'Die grössten Schweizer Talente' (Switzerland's Got Talent), reaching the grand finale with their impressive LED show. This marked the start of a journey with numerous performances on national and international stages. Highlights from recent years include their performance at the Swiss Days 2019 in Dubai, another final appearance on the SRF show 'Stadt Land Talent' in 2021, and the tour with Young Artists in DAS ZELT.

During this time, they continuously enhanced the LED suits and technology. They now consist of 1,800 small LED lights capable of shining in various colors and patterns. The light effects are precisely programmed to the beat of the music within 25 milliseconds.

Moreover, they have since built up a dedicated team of 15 members, including dancers, technicians, and marketing specialists. In 2022, they took the significant step towards independence by founding artGate GmbH. Since then, double or even triple bookings have become possible, and the offering has expanded to include a Solo Show, a Duo Show and a Drum Show.
