Apple Park flyover highlights mystery rainbow stage


Brightly colored segments make Apple Stage look like a rainbow.
Is this the site of an exclusive Apple concert?

It’s been a while since we saw drone flyover videos of Apple Park, particularly now that everyone has moved in. But an update by master drone video maker Duncan Sinfield — his first of 2019 — offers a new airborne overview of Apple’s HQ. Complete with a rainbow-colored mystery stage in the centre of Apple Park.

Check it out below.

Apple hasn’t revealed exactly what the stage is for. From the flyover, it very much appears to be a music stage. That would suggest that it could be for a concert for employees.

Apple, unsurprisingly, gets some pretty big names for these events. A few years ago, for example, it got a live concert from Pharrell. This gave the world the endearing footage of Apple’s executive management team “dad dancing.”

It’s not clear when the concert (if that’s what it is) will take place. If it hasn’t happened already, that is!

Building Apple Park

Apple got permission to build Apple Park from the Cupertino City Council in November 2013. The $5 billion HQ houses more than 12,000 employees in one circular four-story building. Employees started moving in in April 2017, although construction work continued for a while.
