Kinetic Field is the largest of the Electric Daisy Carnival stages.

Kinetic Field, EDC’s main stage area, holds up to 70,000 people. It took an entire month to construct, and is 440 feet wide. The total weight of the structure is 700 tons–in other words, 1.4 million pounds. It’s the biggest of the eight stages at Electric Daisy Carnival.

The highlight of Kinetic Field is a 90-foot tall tree covered in lights. A whopping total of 1,400 lighting fixtures coat the stage, in addition to 33 flame torches and fountains.

So what does an architectural feat like this cost? The price tag on Kinetic Field rang in at $3 million.
