Southern Cross Austereo arranged for Port Shipping Containers to design and construct a portable stage for their radio station ‘Hit107’ in Adelaide to use for their Laneway Gigs. “We were looking for more than standard staging and a marquee which is generally used for these type of events,” says Integration Director Jodie Cairns. “We can broadcast live from it and also have the acts perform on top of it.”
The events were all held in the CBD and featured Jessica Mauboy, Dean Ray, Timmy Trumpet & Savage, Generik, Yolanda Be Cool, Mashd N Kutcher and Vance Joy. The container stage elevation was the perfect height for guests to see the performance, and the Port Shipping container stage has many more benefits than just a traditional stage. ”It gives us instant branding, it looks great and gives us an area for storage in the Laneway where there is generally none,” said Jodie.
