Summer of Sound: Stages for Festivals

Over the past few years, the number of festivals worth the name has grown and grown, and events like Boomtown, now in its ninth year, have even started to redefine what a festival can be and how it will look – but some things absolutely remain the same, and one of them is that any festival needs to show off its performers and look after its audience.

Performing on the Mainstage

If you’re organising a festival, you need to know what you’re looking for. With lighting rigs, sound systems, bass bins – and, oh, yes, a band – onstage, we recommend the Steeldeck or Premier systems.

Steeldeck made its name as a heavy-duty but easily transportable stage, and there’s a very good reason for that. It’s built to be hard-wearing and heavy-duty – it can support up to 2 tonnes on a single eight by four feet platform – and like the Premier it’s built to withstand 7.5kN per square metre. They don’t come more robust.

Mainstage’s original heavy duty stage system, the Premier, is another strong option, boasting our unique “Leg Lock” system to ensure it stays in place no matter what. If you’re not certain which is better for your needs, we recommend you get in touch to discuss your specific situation and we can make a recommendation.

In Smaller Circles

The Cameo may be a better choice for a smaller, less weight-intensive festival stage. Easy to store and transport and a lightweight alternative to our other major staging ranges, the Cameo still boasts our unique “Leg Lock” and can still handle loads in excess of 5kN per square metre.</p
