The DS70 stages are Daytona’s original stage systems and are still as popular as ever with event organisers where a large stage is required but budgets are tight. The DS70 mobile stage system has separate PA wings and has an overall stage area of 72m2.
The DS70 has a lightweight construction but despite it being an older generation Daytona stage it is still built to the company’s exacting standards.
All our stage systems have the ability to be branded according to your specific requirements and the DS70 is no exception.

We understand branding is an important part of your event, you need to support your sponsors & your event image with a professional look. Our stages are designed for branding, with high quality mounting positions. We recommend branding specialists Sunbaba at www.sunbaba.com or tel 01638 507684 for the production of branding to fit our stages, they keep all the sizes & fittings on file. However, you may of course use your own preferred supplier, or it maybe you do not require branding at all.

On arrival there must be adequate access to the venues gateway from the road for an articulated vehicle. If necessary, the event organiser shall provide personnel to control traffic/general public during this manoeuvre.
Both outside and within the venue our vehicles need a minimum clearance of 4.3m height and 2.8m width for access to the designated Stage Area. Therefore any trees, overhead structures or cables should be taken into consideration.
Any weight limits within the venue that are likely to be encountered, especially bridges or manhole covers, need to be sufficient for the 13 tonne max weight of the DS70. This is evenly distributed between four axles and is comprised of 6 tonne for the stage and 7 tonne for the tractor unit.
The presence of any steep slopes within the venue that have to be traversed on route to the Stage Area, or any that are within the Stage Area itself must be discussed with Daytona prior to the event. If either party has any reservations a site visit may have to be carried out.
The area where the stage is to be erected must be enclosed by security barriers, and or security personnel to provide a safe working area before and after the event.
The minimum floor space required for the DS70 is 13m x 7m or 17m x 7m with PA Wings and 5.5m of headroom. Extra space to front of stage if Pit Barriers are used. Note: These measurements are for the stage only. There also has to be provision made for the tractor unit that pulls the stage. This will need room to manoeuvre the stage into position and then un-hitch.
The versatility of the DS70 is such that it can be erected on a variety of surfaces including grass, however, if the ground is too soft, the tractor unit will be at risk of bogging down while towing the stage into position. In such circumstances it is at the discretion of the driver as to whether or not to drive onto the grass. If the decision is made to go ahead, it is the responsibility of the organiser to provide any towing/tracking aides as necessary both on arrival and at time of departure.
Daytona Options including Sound & Lighting
We have additional options which can be added to your stage order. These include front of stage pit barriers, drum risers, extra
decks, which can be added to the front of stage to form catwalks or extensions, etc. Currently we do not offer sound and lighting packages but our preferred supplier is Event Sound & Light Ltd, who know exactly what sound and lighting requirements are needed for each of our stages. Please visit their website at www.eventsoundandlight.com or call their sales team direct on 01245 863863. However, we are happy to work with your own preferred supplier if required.
