BoomTown Fair Container Case Study
BoomTown Fair is a UK based eclectic, multi-genre experimental music festival. Completely original and diverse, it brings together reggae, ska, folk, grime, garage, house, jungle, drum & bass, electro-swing and more for four days of partying. They say:
“Every city has a story, but Boomtown isn’t every city. Its history is as complex as the labyrinth of streets and corridors it contains. From the mysterious disappearance of the town’s forefather amidst rumours of alien technology and mind control to the serious political wrangling of high ranking oﬃcials and the gluttony of corrupt bankers: immerse yourself in a new world, become your inner character, be part of the story…”
So, when Matt from BoomTown contacted us, we were excited. He required some containers to be converted and used for merchandise and ticket/information units. After a few discussions, a final brief was settled on and we utilised four used 40ft high cube single curtain side containers, four used 45ft high cube double curtain side containers and four used 45ft high cube pallet wide containers. As you can see from the photographs, once the containers were modified, delivered and sited by us, they were elaborately decorated so as to blend in with the vibe of the festival. Due to this build being extremely bespoke, and needing to be completed for a very specific deadline, we liaised with Matt and his team every step of the way.
We had a wander around the site and saw containers being used in many different ways; from sound walls around the stages and for mounting stage props and builds to, to site offices, artist accommodation and backstage canteens. It was a pleasure to be a part of this amazing event, and we hope to be involved with even more next year.
Chapter 10 of BoomTown Fair runs from 9th - 12th August 2018, view all of the information here: https://www.boomtownfair.co.uk
