With the gaze of Europe on the UK to deliver a celebratory music event fit for 2022 winners Ukraine, we knew the set would be ambitious. Two sweeping curved “arms” arched from the stage to the mother grid above, creating a metaphorical hug that would embrace artists from across Europe and Australasia. The high-gloss slick main stage, catwalk and satellite stage had to ooze quality and still be durable to withstand 45 performances by the 37 competing countries. LED, lighting, sound and pyrotechnics needed to be neatly incorporated into the staging elements, providing numerous ‘wow’ moments throughout the event. The green room had to accommodate performers comfortably but still have elegance for such a high-profile event.
All that and more and more in less than 2 months delivery time.
Stage One was commissioned to deliver end-to-end production for the complete set package including curved arms, walls, mainstage, catwalk, oval stage, satellite stage, and suspended oval light boxes, alongside the green room, scrutineers’ box, handrail, and carpet the green room area.
