It’s festival season and the Event & Media Structures crew have been up at Williamson Park in Lancaster this week, building DJ booths and stages for the Highest Point Festival (2nd – 5th September) which is expecting a crowd of 35’000 over the 4 days.
For this year’s festival we’re building several temporary structures including:
- The Dell DJ booth
- The BBC Introducing stage
- Fire exit staircases
- Viewing platforms for wheelchair access
Many of our crew have a ton of experience when it comes to designing and building temporary structures for festivals. They’ve built temporary stages, DJ booths and entire nightclubs for some of Britain’s biggest outdoor music events.
The Dell DJ booth will be one of the main music venues to showcase several rising stars of the UK house scene including DJ Producer Luke Stanger, Richy Ahmed and Seb Zito.
We created The Dell using Layher system scaffold which we cladded with a skin of PVC brickwork. For visual impact we commissioned a local graffiti artist to add some tag art to the structure’s exterior.
Our second structure, the BBC Introducing stage was built through the night with only a narrow window to get it completed.
Turnaround was tight and our crew had just four-hours to complete the stage and install two fire exit staircases along with an accessible viewing platform for wheelchair users. But we nailed it well within our allotted time-frame!
This year’s festival line-up won’t disappoint and includes some classic artists, such as James, The Lightning Seeds and Rick Astley and new blues from Rag N Bone Man as well as Drum-and Base from Rudimental.
