MTV created its most ambitious stage design yet for the 2017 Video Music Awards, held in Los Angeles in August. Stufish Entertainment Architects rigged 340,000 pounds of equipment to 560 individual points at the Forum. Six individual stages—including two main stages, a far stage, a “mosh” stage, and a central stage with a catwalk—allowed performers to connect with audience members. Overall, the reflective, metallic set used more than 8,200 feet of LED lines and 100,000 individual LEDs.
