This light show was definitely one of the highlights of the event - involving 270 Tesla cars, creating a heart-shaped display that symbolized love in the colors of the Austrian flag.


The biggest European Tesla Takeover in the heart of Austria

The Alpine village of Flachau, Austria, was the stage for a groundbreaking event from May 24th to May 26th, 2024. The Tesla Takeover Europe 2024, an initiative by the Tesla Club Austria, Tesla Owners Club Silicon Valley, and with the attandance of various European clubs, united a diverse group of electric vehicle enthusiasts, speakers and innovators.

Against the backdrop of the majestic Alps, this gathering transcended the typical Tesla gathering, transforming into a celebration of innovation, sustainability, and the future of mobility.

A stunning light show

Kicking off with a dazzling light show on May 24th at 10:05 pm, the event set the tone for a weekend packed with excitement and communal joy. This light show was definitely one of the highlights of the event – involving 270 Tesla cars, creating a heart-shaped display that symbolized love in the colors of the Austrian flag. This spectacular event was made possible by Simon Pollock, the creator of XLightshows.io, Tesla Club Austria and John Stringer (Tesla Owners of Silicon Valley) and was hailed as the most emotional light show ever.

This light show was special in one more way – not only was it the most impressive and precise shape formation of Teslas ever, but also it was the biggest surprise for me (the author) from my fiancé Artem who proposed to me at the end of the light show. This was all thanks to the amazing organization and coordination by the Tesla Club Austria, Simon Pollock (Xlightshows.io) and John from the Tesla Owners of Silicon Valley who put all their heart and soul into making it possible.
