Described as an adventure-filled playground full of interactive art, carnival rides, theatrical performances and stunning stage production, the Electric Daisy Carnival was jam packed in New York City 2 weekends ago. The event is a full electronic music festival with an additional spin, hosting various off stage performances and rides for fans to engage in. EDC is a large scale tour, making stops at Chicago, London, Puerto Rico, Orlando and finally, Las Vegas.
On May 25th and 26th, fans gathered at City Hall Plaza in Boston to see a variety of popular acts in the indie music scene. Performers at this summer’s Boston Calling Music Festival included Andrew Bird, the Dirty Projectors, Matt and Kim, Fun., Of Monsters and Men, The Shins and more.
Mountain Productions set up a main stage with a 50′ x 36′ Hercules Roof grid. The stage was finished with custom softgoods on the sound wings and roof header. A unique application of the sound wing scrims allows for a bottom interchangeable panel to be replaced for future uses. Mountain also provided a scaffold FOH, 2 video supports and crowd control barricade.
The beginning of the summer is always a jam packed season for Mountain Productions, full of college commencement setups and outdoor festivals. This year was as busy as ever, with a wide variety of events going on at once. During the week of May 13th, Mountain was involved in over 30 events, almost half of which featured hydraulic, mobile autostages. By the time the week was planned out, there wasn’t a mobile stage to spare. The variety in size and rigging capability makes Mountain’s line of mobile stages a popular choice in the summer. They are adaptable enough to work for graduation stages, side concert stages and main festival stages.
Summer is the season that most of us wait for all year. Warm weather, trips to the beach, summer festivals and more are all highlights of the summer months. Many students enjoy the time off before returning to class in the fall, but each year, college seniors prepare for a major milestone in their lives: graduation.
Graduations and commencements celebrate years of hard work and commitment, and the presentation of the event can create a memorable day that families will always remember.
