Colour Sound Experiment, the lighting rental supplier, has launched a custom designed stage system with high weight-load capacities that has been manufactured by Litec to the London-based rental company’s specifications.

This enables Colour Sound to supply a complete visual productions package – lighting and video and staging – for indoor or outdoor arenas of up to around 10,000 capacity.

It was designed with dance festivals in mind, which will frequently feature this size of self-contained venue within a larger event.

The stage and roof system can support weight loadings of up to 10 tonnes and comes complete with Litec’s popular EXE-Rise motors. It can either be supplied as a ‘dry’ stage or with full video and lighting production for which Colour Sound can offer an array of different standard packages or custom designs.

The stage offers a 12 metre wide by x 10 metre deep performance space. The masts are 11 metres high giving has a clear headroom of 8.5 metres.

Colour Sound’s Haydn Cruickshank, said: “We felt there was a real gap in the market for a stage of this size on which a decent amount of production can be rigged.”
