Summer Festival Season 2016

the-fair-2016

Summer 2016 has seen The Fair’s event production and health and safety teams flat out up and down the country at summer festivals and events, so we thought we’d give you a peek what we’ve been busy tweeting and instagraming about this festival season…

Imperial College London’s Festival came alive when 15,000 visitors flocked to Imperial to try out hand-on demos and enjoy the livelier side of science. In the fifth annual Festival, the campus lit up with exhibitions, demonstrations and talks on Imperial’s cutting edge research, as well as tours, music, dance, food and drink.

Cocoloco Stage

We worked with Bournemouth 7s for the first time this festival season. Bournemouth 7s launched in 2008 and is the World’s Largest Sport and Music Festival and takes place every year on the last Bank Holiday weekend in May, attracting over 30,000 sports enthusiasts and festival goers, here’s what Craig from Bournemouth 7s said about us:

“Over the past nine years, Bournemouth 7s has developed into a truly unique event which welcomes over 30,000 people and 400 teams to the South Coast for a bank holiday weekend full of sport and entertainment. The safety of these customers is our number one priority and we were delighted to welcome The Fair on board as part of our team this year. It was a real pleasure to work with Nick and Rob securing the festival and their approach was fantastic throughout. It’s great to work with people who are prepared to work with production to ensure the safety of a site rather than simply point out any issues. We look forward to building a long lasting partnership with the Fair.”

Here’s what Festivals For All had to say about Lunar Festival “There simply was nothing to fault; the site looked magnificent, the music policy was wonderfully eclectic with some bold, and successful, artist programming, the non-musical entertainment was simply excellent, the organisation first class, the facilities were way above typical festival standard, the site was spotless, the staff friendly, and the crowd”

LWE’s Junction 2 was held in amazing location, innovative and interesting stages, beautiful bars, impressive production and carefully chosen sound set ups made for whats being hailed the best festival of the summer.

gottwood-2016

Gottwood is mystical little party hidden in the middle of the woods. Gottwood is a critically acclaimed, independent, boutique, and intimate underground electronic music festival that had so many great reviews. The attention to detail and atmosphere created by the team was unique and we can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for next year’s show.

mostly-jazz-festival

Having secured their first Licence, we have worked with Moseley Festivals for over 10 years. Headed up by the same team as Lunar Festival, Mostly Jazz and Moseley Folk are firm favourites in the festival diary and with the likes of Nile Rodgers, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Booker T Jones, Eska and  De La Soul, the festival brings world class artists to the intimate setting of a private park, making for a truly special experience.

garage-nation-festival-goers

 

We’ve worked with Garage Nation on full production and health and safety management since their first Garage Nation an One Dance festivals. The show takes place over two days on Streatham Common and showcases artists including ms dynamite, heartless crew, dj spoony, jamie duggan and nicky blackmarket.

holi-festival-of-colours

Holi Festival of Colours came to Wembley Park this year and brought with it 13,000 colour festival fans, Johannes from the Holi Festival of Colours team kindly let us in to why they bought us on board:

“After hearing about The Fair’s previous experience with colour festivals, we approached them to produce this year’s Holi Festival of Colours’ London show. From our first conversations with the team we knew that we were in safe hands, their experience of this type of show plus their overall festival production knowledge ensured that our event was a real success. We have had so much positive feedback from the show – Nick and the team were great to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them”.

With London Cocktail Week happening as I type and something very exciting to come this month, we’ve had the best summer to date thanks to our amazing clients and with planning already starting for 2017’s festival season, we cant wait for what next year has in store!
