Hellfest is a French rock music festival held annually in Clisson, Loire-Atlantique. It is one of the biggest music festivals in Europe and, in 2018, saw about 180,000 people attend the event.
Airbus’ Pléiades satellite resource was tasked specifically for June 23rd to collect the spectacle of the festival. The Pléiades satellites constellation acquired 50cm products of the event, showing the sheer scale of the event, including the crowds gathered, the parking lots, the enormous tent villages and even the long lines of people waiting in front of small kiosks.
Airbus’ OneDay tasking option fully relies on the true daily revisit of Pléiades satellites constellation that allows Airbus customers to task the satellites on a specific day and get their image exactly when and where needed in record time.
