150 Years SPD - 2013

Five hundred thousand visitors (roughly the population of Berlin in 1863) celebrated the 150th anniversary of Germany's Social Democratic Party on 17th and 18th August 2013 in front of the Brandenburg Gate and on the Straße des 17. Juni. Stageco's role in the Deutschlandfest included the construction of the main stage and three other stages spread along the length of the festival site, each providing a worthy setting for artistes such as Nena, Dick Brave, the Prinzen, Konstantin Wecker, Stefanie Heinzmann, and Samy Deluxe. Around 700 artistes performed at this event. The main stage was a special Stageco construction using elements from System 3115A with a transparent roof suspended underneath. The transparent roof canopy lent the stage a very delicate feel despite its width of over 33 m, and allowed visitors a glimpse of the Brandenburg Gate behind the stage.
