Building the ultimate Heavy Metal pavilion

By Poltsi

Having litteraly gone through several commercial pavilions during various festival both in Finland as well as abroad, some of our festival group got tired fixing and patching the thingies and instead decided to build on that could survive even the most brutal usage.

The initial specification was a pavilion which would resist the local weather-phenomenon, spaceous and resist the local earthquakes. Poltsi made some preliminary plans. The pavilion would be portable and the pieces were measured to fit a skibox. The initial dimensions are 4x4 meters with an option to expand due to the modular structure. Due to the weight-limitation of 60 kg, some parts (the legs) were made in two parts to fit an ordinary trunk. We purchased the raw-material after which the work could begin.

There is now a manual on how to erect the pavilion (in finnish) here
