Día de la música Heineken 2011
From 18th to 19th June 2011, the “Día de la Música Heineken“ music festival was held in the Matadero in Madrid. This festival has been firmly anchored in Madrid’s agenda of events for several years. To popularise the festival and make it better known outside of Madrid, it was scaled up in 2011, and the admission charges lowered. Vetusta Morla were the stars of the festival. They even had to delay their performance by half an hour due to the sheer number of fans – the queues at the entrance were so great that not all managed to get near the stage by the appointed time.
Commissioned by Music2day, NUSSLI constructed five stages of differing sizes throughout the festival grounds. At times, 24-man strong assembly teams worked to complete the construction within the given deadline. One exceptional feature of these stages was the temporary ground support system, consisting of 30 tonnes of dead weight. This was needed, as the stages were loaded with a large number of lighting elements. In addition, the stages had to be 9.5 m high, so that the concerts could also be broadcast on television.
