Outdoor Event Stage Hire

SXS is a leading Outdoor Stage Hire provider. We have numerous outdoor stage systems which are ideal for a wide range of events. All stages come with full structural and wind-loading reports.

Our range of outdoor stage structures is ideal for events from small operatic performances up to major festival stages where space is needed for multiple performer changeovers. Many of our clients have unique requirements, so we will design and provide fully bespoke solutions to meet the needs of site, height or environmental limitations.

Whether your event is inside or outside, we will put you or your client on the perfect stage.

Your stage will be perfect for your event and we will fulfill all your needs according to your instructions. We are able to provide a huge range of stages for unusual projects and custom builds. Our team of skilled designers and crew have experience building ramps for trucks, circus rigs, multi-tiered stages on steep slopes and many other diverse projects in stage-building.

Harlem 8m stage

A medium structure and ideal for where structurally-sound weather-protected structures are required for events. This structure is the one that we use most commonly for a range of events. Available accessoires include PA wings, and extended truss rigs; which are ideal for giving the stage a larger appearance.

Uses:

This structure is ideal for:

  • Band performances, easily fitting a 6-piece band with backline, drums etc
  • Choir Performances
  • Concerts
  • Main stages for small festivals
  • Branded events

Optional Extras

Monitor Wing

The Harlem has the added option of the stage wings which can be on one or both sides of the stage and add 12' x 16' of extra covered deck space. This can be used for monitors, storage, band changeovers or for observation.

Video/PA Wing

You also have the option of Video/PA Wings. These come off of the front corners of the structure and provide rigging points for LED screens and make the stage look much bigger. If you wanted to use these as Video wings then we can use heavy duty truss with high load ratings.

PA Towers

Our PA Towers are made using Litec QX40 Truss. If you have a large audience area or want to focus your sound coverage to any area then you need your line array up high. Our PA towers go to 9 metres.

10m arched roof outdoor stage

Our Freemont outdoor stage is ideal for where structurally-sound weather-protected structures are required for events. We use this structure for larger festivals and where stage space is required for band changeovers etc. This structure also features a "self-climbing" roof, which means we can rig all equipment at ground level and then lift it.

This structure is ideal for:

  • Band performances, easily fitting a 10-piece band with backline, drums etc
  • Choir Performances
  • Concerts
  • Main stages for medium festivals and branded events

Optional Extras:

Stage Wing

At 7 metres deep the Freemont has the added option of the stage wings which can be on one or both sides of the stage and add 12' x 16' of extra covered deck space. This can be used for monitors, storage, band changeovers or just for observation.

Video Wings

You also have the option of Video/PA Wings. These come off of the front corners of the structure and provide rigging points for LED screens and make the stage look much bigger.

PA Tower

Our PA Towers are made using Litec QX40 Truss. If you have a large audience area or want to focus your sound coverage to any area then you need your line array up high. Our PA towers go to 9 metres.

Ramp

If you are going to be moving heavy equipment on and off of the stage then it may be a good idea to use a ramp. Our ramps can be tailored to your needs if you are tight on space or require a different setup. They also have a landing area and come with handrails and lip ramps so that cases can get up and down smoothly.

Dimensions

  • Width: 10m
  • Depth: 8.5m
  • Height to start of arch: 4.5m

Access Required

We will need truck access within 20 metres of the final stage location based on the ground being suitable for wheeling cases over.

Kentlage Required

We use IBC's as kentlage. These require a fire hydrant within 100 metres of the stage.

Approx. Build Time

The standard Freemont structure takes 1 day to build. If any additions are required it will take around 2 days.

Stage Drawing

12 metre stages

We find that a lot of clients are after 12m or wider stages. While we only go up to 10m, we are able to provide additonal wing-space for monitor positions, rolling risers etc. These on both sides could mean a 10m stage can be used for larger events with multiple changeovers etc.

Please call us to discuss your event so we can help design the perfect structure for you.
