The main stage built by Serious Stages was some 70m wide and incorporated a huge Owl, a Dragon and two ‘Guardians’ as well as a massive 400m2 LED screen and a fully functioning ‘waterfall’!  ‘It was a great challenge to be able to combine such a huge stage based construction with so much creativity and artistic design’ said Tee.  ‘Unlike conventional stages which offer complete weather protection to the performance area, the only ‘on stage roof’ comprised of a small perspex canopy covering the actual DJ performer and their equipment with the rest of the construction acting as a supportive ‘skeletal’ frame for the set & scenic panels and cloths, inflatables, lighting, audio, LED screens, laser and pryo effects’.  In addition, there were a further 3 stages located in Big Top’s along with carnival rides, performers and art installations.
