DESIGN CONCEPT & BUILD
Following Kygo’s succesful Endless Summer Tour and continuing our ongoing relationship, Made Up were commissioned to design and build a bespoke stage set for his live global headline performances in 2015. Key objectives were to ensure the set is both tourable and fully scalable to accommodate any venue, anywhere.
The final concept is based on Kygo’s logo and built upon a lightweight truss structure with a flyable back wall and height adjustable DJ platform, ensuring all the above criteria is met. The chosen design has an integrated central ‘X’ shaped lightbox, video panels and DJ booth to provide a practical and efficient installation wherever it’s activated.
The stage set up has since featured at two of the hottest festivals in the US: Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida and both weekends at Coachella in Indio, California.
In addition to the design and build, Made Up manage all production and international logistics for Kygo’s performances. This includes advancing the technical rider, managing international freights for the production equipment and overall production management, inclusive of the supply and operation of all special effects (CO2, flames and streamer cannons).
It has been an incredible start to the year, and we look forward to continuing our work with Kygo and touring the set around the world.
