Music: Anthem by N-Joi
“The Kings Cross Laser Christmas Tree is the first of its kind, designed to bring two joyous celebrations together – Rave and Christmas. The tree itself is created by high powered lasers shooting across Regent’s Canal from the Kings Cross Filling Station (KXFS) onto the Midlands Good Shed opposite, drawing a simple Christmas tree. On the hour the tree goes into RAVE MODE, best viewed from KXFS where it is accompanied by a random rave track.
During the nineties and early naughties, Kings Cross was home to some of the capital’s best known clubs; Bagley’s, Cross, Canvas and Shrimpy’s resident artist Donald Urquhart’s left-field Beautiful Bend. The King’s Cross Laser Christmas Tree – a collaboration between Pablo Flack of Office of Change and Urban Electric – knits into the rich cultural heritage of the area.
