The bands will be performing on a small platform/stage behind the main building. The platform sits at ground level on the back and then projects out as the ground rolls down. The highest part of the stage (the front edge) is only 24 inches off of the ground. The stage was built very well and has been used several times with absolutely no problems. I do not have an official load rating for this small structure though.
