Universal CityWalk, L.A.’s premier free music venue, debuted a new concert-grade staging system last week that features a sophisticated LED lighting rig, a DJ platform, a massive new “CityVisionSM” video screen and state-of-the-art sound quality.
The new staging system will serve as the centerpiece of CityWalk’s lively Cinema Plaza performance space, combining new sight and sound elements to produce an outstanding outdoor music experience.
“The introduction of the new stage and the installation of the new CityVision screen are key elements in our plans to enhance free CityWalk music programs and deliver on our promise to provide ‘Always Unexpected’ entertainment to our guests,” said Brian Bacica, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Universal CityWalk. “Our stage will host free concerts featuring both top-selling bands and the best local emerging music throughout the entire year.”
The new 26×20 stage introduces a new lighting rig utilizing LED lights and moving fixtures to provide superior optics and vivid light shows, as well as a DJ platform extension dedicated to the growing popularity of electronic music.
The launch of the new stage coincides with CityWalk’s “Plugged In” series, a program that features free concerts by major artists throughout the year. Famed pop-punkers Good Charlotte christened the stage on November 4 during the official unveiling with a free “Plugged In” performance timed to coincide with the release of their latest album, Cardiology.
