In this #ProjectHighlight, are heading back 10 years ago to August 2014, where Finnish rapper Cheek, performed two historical concerts in the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. Cheek became the first domestic act that would play for a full stadium in Finland, selling out the 40000-capacity venue twice. 🤩

The staging was a Prolyte Space Roof. A modular roof system based on a space frame structure. The roof can be suspended from standard Prolyte CT towers. The aluminium profiles combine with special node points to create a roof structure of any desired size or shape.

This type of stage was also on a scale not seen before for a domestic artist, complete with a massive light show and pyrotechnics. Thirty-seven lorry loads of equipment were brought in, some of it hired from the UK and other Nordic countries. Some 700 people worked at the stadium each evening.


United Audio Starlight AB a Swedish-based company specialized Rental Company; has a broad collection of stages and structures, including this massive Prolyte Space Roof. The design company behind this show was Visual45.

The stage for Cheek was based on a 60m. wide overhead construction, with a depth of 10m. based on the Space Roof elements. All calculations were made to fit the total equipment weight of 48,7 tonnes of equipment in the roof structure.
