The Float at Marina Bay, also known as Marina Bay Floating Platform, it's the world's largest floating stage. It is located on the waters of the Marina Reservoir next to the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, in Marina Bay, Singapore. Made entirely of steel, the floating platform on Marina Bay measures 120 metres long and 83 metres wide, which is 5% larger than the soccer field at the National Stadium. The platform can bear up to 1,070 tonnes, equivalent to the total weight of 9,000 people, 200 tonnes of stage props and three 30-tonne military vehicles. The gallery at the stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000 people. The Float at Marina Bay was presented as a temporary replacement for the Singapore National Stadium while it got rebuilt into a modern stadium. The idea for a floating stadium came from the organising committee of the National Day Parade, with one of the greatest benefits having the scenic Singapore skyline as a backdrop.
The motivation for building the Marina Bay Floating Stadium came when the chairman of the National Day Parade committee decided of finalising an alternate venue for holding the National Day Parade during the 8 years within which the National Stadium was to remain under renovation. After taking into consideration a number of other venues, it was zeroed upon the Marina Bay.
The main planning of the Marina Stadium was done by the Defence Science and Technology Agency of Singapore. The stadium was built in a manner where it could be relocated and also adjusted as per the nature of events taking place. Pontoons, pylons, and heavy duty rubber rollers went into making the foundation so that the stadium remained steady in tides. Importance was also given in choosing the backdrop of the stadium and as the Marina centre looked pleasing aesthetically, it was chosen as the final one. A lot of thought has also gone into the designing of the drainage, lighting, cabling of the stadium.
