I want to create a 3 step process is the admin system, which is going to take some serious customisation.

Step 1: Select venue and enter event details
Step 2: Select dates for the event
Step 3: Select car parks available for event and set pricing

Is this even possible? Thanks

That might actually be pretty easy, just use conditionals on the getCMSFields function, check for fields set, and depending on which ones are already set, present a different set of fields.

$StepOneFields = new CompositeField(
new DropdownField('VenueID', 'Venue', Venu::get()->map())

$StepTwoFields = new CompositeField(
new GridField('Dates', 'Dates', $this->Dates())

$StepThreeFields = new CompositeField(
new GridField('CarParks', 'Car Parks', CarParks::get()->map())

if( !$this->ID ) $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', $StepOneFields);
elseif( $this->ID && $this->VenueID ) $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', $StepTwoFields);
elseif( $this->ID && empty($this->CarParks()) ) $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', $StepThreeFields);
else // Add all 3 CompositeFields to FieldList
