you don't need a proposal for user-defined building tags. They are
IMHO on the other hand not what you really want. An openair-arena is
more than just the bandstand. You might also want to tag associate the
parking, the fence and gates, the visitor space, the toilets and

Also the ones I was pointing to were IMHO far too big to be called
bandstands. At least what I read in Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandstand and see in the pictures this is
for fairly small "stages", it is probably not for something
festival-size. Also it seems limited to musical purposes, theatrical
plays and the like don't seem to be included. It is also limited (at
least according to wikipedia) to circular or semicircular structures.

If you continue searching Wikipedia, you'll also find:
sylvan theatre
which is though limited to spaces in green areas like parks and woods.
But IMHO it might somehow better fit for your purpose.

Why not stick to your originally proposed open_air_stage? It is
generic and easily understandable for non-natives as well.
