|Location||Marina Bay, Singapore|
The Float @ Marina Bay, also known as Marina Bay Floating Platform, is the world's most massive floating stage located on the water in Marina Bay, Singapore. Marina Bay is made entirely of steel, measures 120 meters by 83 meters, 5% larger than the National Stadium soccer field. The steel platform can carry up to 1,070 tons, which is equivalent to the total weight of 9,000 people, 200 tons platform support and three 30-ton military vehicles. The gallery of the stadium has a capacity for approx. 30,000 people. The events taking place at the stadium may include sports, music, exhibitions, artistic and cultural shows. The annual National Day parade was held there for five years as it was selected as a temporary stadium in place of the National Stadium, Kallang that was demolished as part of the Singapore Sports Hub.
The stadium is a part of the Marina Bay Street circuit turns 17 and 18, which hosted the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix. More infamously, this is where Nelson Piquet, Jr. crashed his car causing a Renault Formula One crash controversy. Following Singapore's successful bid to organize the 2010 Summer Youth Olympic Games, the floating stadium made headlines during the Games as the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies of the event. The floating platform will continue to celebrate the National Day Parade 2020 and 2021 along with River Hongbao and F1, before being demolished in 2022 to build the "NS Square".
