Schaefer completed the structural design for the temporary stage, entrance/information/signage structures + video structures for 2022’s March Madness Music Festival at Woldenberg Park in New Orleans, Louisiana. The three-day music event, that complements the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament, hosted performers like Imagine Dragons, Khalid, Arcade Fire, Macklemore + many more. The stage roof, 60 ft wide x 52 ft deep and 50 ft tall adjoined by a 30 ft wide video bay, was constructed with individual custom aluminum trusses supported by steel scaffold lifting bays + video walls. It was erected for the April 1-April 3 festival, and promptly disassembled the following day.
March Madness Music Festival in New Orleans was Schaefer’s seventh year designing temporary stages for the event. Find out more about how we design stages for these events with safety as the goal.
