Rock City Festival

 

                                     Welcome to Rock City Festival featuring 'The All Mighty BrickStars'

Being a musician and Lego enthusiast I wanted to build something that combined my favourite hobbies. This model comes complete with lots of extra areas of the festival (not just the stage) and some great finer details, which I think might lack in other festival type sets. I wanted to make sure the detail was at the right level for musicians and people who work backstage.

Please click through the pictures while reading the feature list below.

Main features this model include are: -

  • Ticket Office - The ticket office features a list of show times next to the booth that is made from stone coloured Lego with minifigure inside to take money from either the card reader or cash (sloped grey angled piece and gold round piece) Next to the ticket office is a turnstile for entry into the festival.

 

  • Bar Area - The bar is coloured with different flooring to separate the areas and comes complete with pump and glass trays all around the bar. It also features a barrel behind with cans and glasses around and underneath the bar, this has a smooth bar surface also.

 

  • Backstage (loading area) - this has a folding (up & down) ramp for loading flight cases from trucks into the backstage area.

The area has different shelving units featuring records, fire switch and emergency megaphone along with a clock and recording devices on the back wall.
