Proposal

A bandstand (in french : kiosque à musique) is a polygonal structure set in a public space, often a park, designed to accommodate musical bands to perform concerts. Most of them were built during the 19th and early 20th centuries. They can be found in many countries, mostly in Europe, North America and the Commonwealth.

Rationale

People may need to find the place of a concert or public meeting. These buildings may also have a historical or architectural interest.

Examples

Tagging

The "leisure = bandstand" tag is occasionally used , about 35 occurrences according to Taginfo (e. g. in Hyde Park, London). The aim of this proposal is to formalize this usage.


As of October 2013 there are a few other variants:

  • leisure=bandstand (122)
  • amenity=bandstand (58)
  • building=bandstand (43)
  • building=band_stand (3)
  • man_made=bandstand (2)
  • historic=bandstand (2)
  • leisure=band_stand (2)
  • amenity=band_stand (2)
  • tourism=band_stand (1)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- I think that 'amenity' would be more appropriate than 'leisure'. Looking at the precedence of things tagged under each, it appears that 'leisure' leans toward things which the public can use spontaneously for the intended purpose, while 'amenity' leans more toward scheduled event use to entertain the public ... in the general area of performing arts, that is. So, we have amenity=theatre (which includes music venues) and amenity=cinema. Granted, the general public can use a bandstand for leisure activities, but entertainment by a band (intended use) is generally an organized and scheduled activity rather than a spontaneous one, which signals use of 'amenity' over use of 'leisure' in my opinion in this particular case.

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. -- I agree with ceyockey, it is an amenity, not a leisure item. The term bandstand is very very specific, but "stage" is not. here in Japan, there are several stages in parks, not amphitheaters or stadiums, but bare concrete stages near open grass fields that basically turn the whole park into a venue. They are also found in commons, like high school or university quads, as well as in corporate open areas for staff events. (my high school, college and Apple's HQ all have bare stages in their grass quads). amenity=stage covered=yes for a bandstand should do it, and be flexible to handle the plethora of other lonely stages throughout the world.

  • +1 --> amenity=stage + covered=yes ... that sounds quite flexible for a global solution. --Ceyockey (talk) 01:08, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. The definition that it is "a polygonal structure" suggests man_made=* or building=* rather than leisure=*. The sample photo shows a construction of a kind I use to tag as building=pavillon. Of course you may use a combination of the tags building=* + leisure=bandstand, to separate physical characteristics from usage. I would like that. In any case, this proposal should make a statement on how it relates to buildings. I am also concerned because there was no valid voting period. Some people made votes when the status was still RFC. It wasn't until 2013-10-31 that the status was actually set to voting and the propsal appeared on Status Voting. The mail to the tagging list is still missing, and the voting start date is missing too. I suggest re-starting voting properly and letting it go for 2 weeks. Otherwise I consider it a poorly done coup. --Fkv (talk) 20:14, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. -- Brycenesbitt (talk) 09:00, 21 December 2013 (UTC) While the restriction to polygons is silly, a band stand is a distinct object, and the tag description can be cleaned up later.
