What is a Blacklight, and how is it used for live events?
A Black Light is a fixture that emits light in the ultraviolet band. People can’t see the light itself – you can only see items that interact with it. Special pints, and dyes react under blacklights, as well as normal items like clothing, some drinks, and even the enamel of your teeth. The technical terms for an item interacting with black light is called fluorescence – but most people call it GLOW!
Theatrical Black Lights are called by a variety of names that include – UV Lighting, Blacklights, UV Fixtures, and Wildfires. They can be a conventional lighting fixture (using a halogen or incandescent bulb) or they can be LED lighting fixtures. At Sound Mind Events, we have one of the largest rental inventory available of theatrical black lights for Glow Parties, Disco events, and EDM events.
Using the right staff for rental Blacklights
At Sound Mind Events, we are one of a handful of companies in the United States that have inventory of long throw black light fixtures available for rental. Out of this handful, we are in an even smaller minority, as we have the technicians that understand these black light fixtures, the throw patterns associated with them, and the ability to use them in large format, outdoor environments. As you can imagine – it takes a very talented, professional technician to focus a lighting fixture that doesn’t emit visible light!
Our black light rentals are used all over the nation for 5K runs, theme parties, college parties, video shoots, and corporate event rentals. Combined with our LED Dance Floors and special effects rentals, we are the company you need to provide long throw black light fixtures, LED black light panels, and LED black light pars!

You’ll find our technicians to be polite, well dressed professionals who are passionate about the black light rental industry, as well as the safety of your attendees and talent.
