V Festival Chelmsford

So, another V Festival has passed and it was a triumph in both Chelmsford & Stratford.

The Killers & Justin Timberlake closed the two shows on Sunday night while the team was getting ready to load out and get to the next job. Here are some pictures of the Chelmsford team loading out and getting ready for Electric Picnic!

Longitude Festival – Dublin

Longitude festival was a smaller, more intimate boutique festival compared to the scale of T in the Park  but that doesn’t mean an easy ride for the Voodoo team!

And so it proved.

Bars being set up - lot of work still to do!

This time the team was led by senior wizard, Dan, who with his small team of 3 was up against it from day 1.   When the team arrived on site the Voodoo truck was waiting to be unloaded which meant they could get stuck straight in to the instal and get ahead of schedule, all was progressing well until there was 2 additional bars added to the mandate and the team had to work through the night to get the job done.

Keep calm, Voodoo have arrived!

Its very rare that there is such a significant change in plan at such a late stage of production but the team took it on the chin and delivered as always.

Dan and flash oversaw the planning of the bars and made suggestions to the festival managers on how to make the bars more economical and efficient thus selling more beer and significantly reducing waste. Having worked in the industry for so long, offering such wizardry comes natural to each member of the Voodoo team as its in everyones interest to keep the beer flowing and maximising profit for all parties concerned.

All in all the festival was a triumph with Massive attack headlining the final night, the team worked through the night again to pack up and get rolling!
