Concerts by top celebrity music artists feature the best and most technical stage designs.
Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams for example, featured out-of-this-world visuals and pyros. Not to be discounted in the list of best stage designs are those of the music festivals from all over the world. Here are some of our top picks:
Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas
The whole experience is a display of vivid colors, and the union of nature and technology. It’s an imaginative and picturesque landscape coming to life. The audience are welcome to explore and experience music, art and discovery. The whole event will have nine distinct looking stages.
Tomorrowland is a world famous EDM festival. Tomorrowland celebrated its 10th anniversary with fifteen awesome stages, trying to fulfill its promise of being the music festival other festivals would spend years to catch up to. For 2017, Tomorrowland extended the festivities covering two weekends, a diversion from the usual one-weekend format of most festivals.
Monegros Desert Festival 2016, Spain
Monegros Desert Festival has been renamed from Monegros to Groove Parade to Monegros once again. The cancellation of Groove Parade 2015 made Monegros promise a comeback that would rival that of the best music festivals in Europe, with the desert painting a sandy scenery and no neighbors to call the cops on you.
Mysteryland claims to be the grandfather of all festivals. Dating back from daddys, Mysteryland has launched the careers of many successful DJs to date. One of their best outdoor stage design is their larger-than-life baboon stage with flaring nostrils, billowing smoke and spitting fire above its head. Mysteryland will have its 24th edition from August 25th - 28th, 2017.
Coachella is perhaps the most talked about music festival that even non-festival goers are familiar with. The experience promises food, art and sustainability, all in front of a music background setting the ambience. Although their stages lack the flare and high technicality of their other counterparts, their Do-Lab stage is a sight to see, fitting for a festival that showcases art as tall as the palm trees in the background.
Mysteryland 2015 Main Stage
Another entry to best outdoor stage came from Mysteryland. The stage travelled all the way from Holland and boasted 240 pyro blasts from seven flame units, and lasers beams from 16 multicolored units. The twin Trojan horses are meant to symbolise good and evil.
High Definition Festival 2014
High Definition Festival showcases extravagant showpieces for small electronic festival in the UK. Light Design Ltd. illuminated the Essex event last 2014.
Arcadia Spectacular features the most immersive stage designs. The Afterburner has a central flaming fire above the DJ booth. It radiates light while a sound system surrounds it and spiraling arms reach into the crowd. It creates a multi level dance platforms and layered spatial dynamics.
The Bug on the other hand was featured in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics. It is designed to have the wings unfold to reveal a small but fully rigged outdoor stage.
The best stage design of Arcadia Spectacular would have to be the main stage, The Spider. It is the largest and most radical structure of the three. It can host up to 50,000 people within its arena.
The spider is fully rigged with a vast array of effects from movable limbs firing dry ice, to heavyweight pyrotechnics, to piercing lasers and cutting edge lighting.
