The last year has undoubtedly been a massive one in the electronic dance music industry with indications of a steady rise is music listeners and ravers all around the world as well as an exponential growth in the number of music producer and interestingly of various age groups, who sought out to bring out the best in electronic music. Moreover, it has not just been the monopoly of the various commercial genres of music but the spotlight has begun to shine bright on several new sub genres in the industry like future house, chillstep, bounce, and trap.

What’s more is that curators of music festivals around the globe have spotted this new found love for the music in fans and have given it their all to amp things up at their festivals just to make sure that their fans have a memorable experience . Both the musical experience and venue ambiance have thus seen massive changes and one of the most significant features of any festival are the stages and the setting up of which are the top priority for organizers. Festivals like  Insomniac, Ultra and Tomorrow are quite definitely known for their jaw dropping , trademark stages and have gone a step further to really step up their already massive productions. Other festivals too have sought to more creative stage set up ideas and so here is a list of some of the most remarkable stage designs that we believed truly stood out.


Tomorrowland on an average has around 15 stages set up at various locations and are painstakingly decorated in their own unique style while at the same time living up to the festivals theme. The 2015 edition saw the main stage stage depicting the theme which was the Secret Kingdom of “MELODIA.” With elegant panels, a number of led screen along with the trademark , massive central screen and a number of other add ons , this was quite possible the most magnificent stage in the festivals 11 year history.

Life In Color

Life In Color, a music festival based out of United States of America which began in 2006, is dubbed as the world’s largest paint party and is known for the trademark spraying of paint over its fans with the aim of bringing a bit a color and joy in the lives of each and every raver. The stage at Life In Color Kingdom depicts the head of a mythical lion and was so designed with the aim of bringing out the energy and the inner animal in the fans. As the festival progressed the stage came to life with bright lights illuminating the elegant structure as the artist performed in what was intended to be the open jaws of the Lion.

Electric Daisy Carnival

EDC or better known as Electric Daisy Carnival is the brainchild of one of the front runners in the event management industry, Insomniac Events. The 2015 edition was a massive production indeed witnessing over 400,000 ravers over 3-days. The entire setting was probably straight out of a fairy tale book; ravers soak in the musical experience as the well illuminated wise owl watches on.
