The massive set used:

freaks unleashed - candy mansion party - Gold coast 2017
Its not often you get asked to build a "huge, festival style" stage in someone's back yard, but the Candyman doesn't do things like everyone else! When he asked us if we could do it, we said we could, but that we could go bigger! So we did...the final stage ended up being 19m high x 22m wide and covered in sway poles, pyro, lazers, moving lights, and LED, making it bigger, and more technical than most festival stages in the country.

pop up globe - melbourne 2017
In July 2017 we commenced construction of a full scale replica of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre at Melbourne Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Completed in September 2017 the Pop-up Globe remained in place until February 2018 before it vanished again. We assembled over 120t of scaffold, fully clad with insulation and corrugated iron, to seat (or stand if you watched from the Groundlings area) 950 people at every show. This is Shakespeare as it was intended, in the building originally designed by the man himself.
Lux Populi - Vivid sydney 2017
"Lux Populi by Stagekings soars 10 metres above the forest floor, with a kilometre of glowing neon rope reflecting off the skyscrapers in the finance, district and transforming glass and concrete into a sparkling corridor of light.
Beneath the tree, renowned Argentinian restaurant Porteño roasts barbecue treats from an open-flame fire pit that casts a warm glow across the surrounding bar and dining area. Some of NSW’s best fire chefs are also joining Porteño, creating exciting culinary collaborations with locally sourced wines and beverages."
