Wapiti made its debut as Lightning in a Bottle’s new Thunder Stage, taking the place of Big Fish after a solid 4 year run serving as the festival’s bass and glitch haven. Spanning a length of 300 ft and a width of 210 ft, Wapiti now holds the record for LIB’s largest structure ever with a 10,000 person capacity, more than double that of Big Fish. Not only does Wapiti reign in size, but intricacy and complexity as well. A total of 212 fabric panels, 42 beams and columns, and 1600 cables make up the goliath structure, taking our most experienced builders nearly 3 weeks to complete.
Wapiti is a design collaboration between Josh Flemming of Do Design and Benlloyd Goldstein of Goldspace.
