Coney Island Stage

Construction of themed music stage at Boardmasters 2018, Newquay.

Project Overview

Boardmasters in Newquay is one of the Westcountry’s biggest festivals. In 2018 we were asked to assist with the introduction of a Coney Island themed stage, which featured a 50m high replica of Coney Island Station’s facade, a secret tunnel (accessed via man-hole) and an ‘underground’ dance hall featuring a 360° DJ booth and smoke machine. The build utilised reclaimed materials and was brought to life with replica artefacts. Coney Island was a spectacle to behold for all who attended and would have made a return but for the unfortunate cancellations in both 2019 and 2020 (due to bad weather and Covid-19 respectively).
