Well, my band needs stage ideas. We don't want a boring stage and our budget is fairly decent. Since there is no other sub-forum apllying to this I posted it here.

one of my stage ideas was this:



A badly painted drawing.
But, I don't know. What I pictured was a dark stage with fog machines going and then some like some "scary" sounds and like two red/orange revoling lights go off on both sides of the band name (like in the picture, except there would be a band name in there) plus maybe some strobe lights. And then the music plays and we enter through the doors behind the set.

Theres so many differant ideas, any other good ones you guys can think of?

Where are you playing? You'll just look like a tool if it's a school talent show/battle of the bands.

Nah, it's a fest and we're in a field with a self-built stage and stuff. It was just a basic fest but we offered to play there and we got ourselves a good gig.

This.


Unless you're well known, you'll look dumb going into a stage like this.

Completely useless if you're not a rather well-known band.

And not just because a few of your friends like you can you be a "well-known" band.

We're pretty well known in our area. Not like...huge but not like we're a garage band.

Maybe you'd get some decent advice out of the Bandleading forum? I dunno. You'll just get horrible ideas here.

seems like a waste of money to me. try to good ol wooden stage and randomly arrange all the equipment five minutes before you go on. makes you seem more modest instead off arrogant douche bags.

Go see U2, then you can say you contributed money to Bono's giant Irish tower built out of the blood, tears, and the hopes of African children.

This

OR

Put 4 blood covered people on crucifixes and a bunch of lamb skulls on poles on your stage, like Gorgoroth.
