One Direction perform on LS-Live's stage

Worldwide pop sensations One Direction performed from a stunning sloping stage designed and built by LS-Live for the band’s video game themed sets on ITV’s X Factor final at the end of 2012. The hit talent show culminated in a live final at Manchester Central with the boyband as special guests.


The 3m wide by 12m long stage, which sloped up to a height of 2.5m, had to be assembled and roll on the stage in just three minutes!


LS-Live custom built a steel construction in six pieces, which rolled independently then locked together for a seamless look. The performance deck and the base deck were connected via criss-cross MDF strips sprayed metallic silver.


The 12m long sloping stage featured in the centre of an LED tech-fest that had the effect of putting the band in the centre of a virtual computer game.
