The stage at the Cuatro Vientos aerodrome is also unique. Here, the Saturday night vigil will take place on August 20 as well as the Sunday Mass. It has an area of 650 feet that simulates a mountain with a metallic tree next to where the pope will be sitting. The face of which show projections and a light show.

“We wanted to make it, especially for Cuatro Vientos, a screen where we could project all sorts of things, as well as a light show, given that it is something going to be used mostly at night.”
The other places of honor will hold the youth and the Choir and Orchestra of the World Youth Day.
It will be built with materials that are easy to set up and break down, as well as very cost effective. Some areas are designed to highlight the presence of the pope among the more than one million young people expected in Madrid.
