With commencement season in full swing, our teams have been busy right along the East Coast preparing and setting the stage for the graduating class of 2022. From large main stages to compact mobile stages and everything in between, commencement season is a special time of year not only for the graduates themselves but also the Mountain Production’s team.
From Florida to Pennsylvania, our crews have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure this year’s graduates get a send-off to remember. See below for a complete rundown of our 2022 commencement staging.
Returning with a rhythmic, good-all-round country music line-up, Tortuga brought the sweet sounds of country to Fort Lauderdale and its beloved beaches once again in 2022! Back for its biggest year ever, thousands of country music fans from across the country gathered for three days of non-stop music across three bona fide music stages.
Sunshine Grove was the place to be for the much-anticipated return of Okeechobee Music Festival. With an estimated 50,000 overnight campers and daily festivalgoers descending upon the sprawling festival site over the 4-day event, the atmosphere was nothing less than electric!
Celebrating its 5th anniversary, this year’s festival was elevated to new heights with a whopping six stages, new art installations and incredible performances from the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Tame Impala, Rezz and Porter Robinson.
Rolling into Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens this past July, Rolling Loud Miami served up 3-days of some of the biggest names in hip hop as well as some of our most epic staging to date. The MTN team is no stranger to the festival, having provided many different MTN systems for over half a decade.
As businesses begin to reopen across the US, people are looking to enjoy experiences missed over the last few months. Dining out and enjoying live performances must top many people’s lists after coronavirus lockdowns. While many owners are busy preparing for the reopening of their businesses, it is very important that social distancing measures are implemented to keep us safe.
While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still advises tables to be spaced at least 6 feet apart, we, at Mountain Productions, have come up with easy and quick solutions to allow for the safe return to work while maximizing business opportunities.
Here are our innovative solutions for extending your workplace safely and effectively to welcome your long-awaited diners.
Extend seating onto the pavement
In order to practice social distancing, many owners will experience a troubling shortage of dining space. Our MTN decking and barricades provide a quick, flexible space extension onto the nearby street without compromising a unique dining experience.
With the aid of our compact truss pieces, owners can decorate this unit with the same lighting to keep the entire area consistent with their character. We only use the strong, top-quality truss that can support your additional enhancements aesthetically.
Expand your restaurant with a mobile unit
Looking for something mobile? We have got you covered.
Not only does this structure provide mobility, but the expanded section of our SL-100 mobile stage can also serve as an exclusive VIP area, allowing families and friends to enjoy meals without interacting with other guests.
This mobile staging system even enables restaurants or cafes to suspend heavy lights, speakers, projectors etc to create a unique atmosphere for special occasions such as birthdays and bridal showers to cheer up your diners
Keep live performances alive
Some bar managers told us they were worried about whether their live shows could still continue when they reopen their doors to customers.
We’re here to get live music back into gear and bring back the calming sense of release that many people miss.
Our new layout with social-distancing practices in place makes live performances even more enjoyable. The SL-100 mobile stage which has previously been erected for thousands of concerts and outdoor events gives diners a real, immersed music experience while performers can leverage the sophisticated system to up their game.
The premium glass barricades around the seats and the elevated platform are used to help separate customers from passers-by for a nice evening out with the city landscape.
The pandemic disruptions have shattered many people’s plans but we all have the ability to adapt and develop through difficult times. We’re in this together.
