Brazil's biggest music festival – The Villa Mix Festival Goiânia Edição 2015 – has set a new world record for the Largest stage rig for a music concert, usurping the title from veteran rock band U2.
Hosting some of the biggest names in Brazilian music and attended by approximately 48,000 people, organisers of the fifth edition of the festival which took place earlier this month had decided to construct the ultimate stage for the event.
Now verified by Guinness World Records the stage measured a striking 2,788.39 m² (30,013.98 ft²) and 52.34 m (171 ft 8 in) high.
Acts who performed at the festival included Ivete Sangalo, Luan Santana, Wesley Safadão, and Jorge & Mateus - watch their set in the player below.
Put together by 1,500 people, with 628 tons of equipment and featuring an incredible 1,191.50 m² of LED screens, the record-breaking stage took 31 days to complete.
This amazing feat is also significant in that it marks the first time a record that has been attempted in the Brazilian state of Goiás.
The festival's stage smashed the previous record set by U2 on their 360 Tour which was on the road between 2009 and 2011, and featured a 50m (164 ft) high spaceship-like stage that measured 2,694 m² (229,000 ft²) and was named “The Claw”.
“The Claw” required 120 trucks to transport and cost between £15 million and £20 million to create.
