Summer is almost here and that means fun in the sun and summer nights celebrating at a local music festival or other event.
When hosting your own outdoor festival, it is essential that you make a checklist of necessary equipment such as lighting, staging, and sound. Having the right gear on hand will go a long way in making sure your event is a success.
Set The Mood For Your Event With The Right Lighting
Day or night, your outdoor festival needs appropriate lighting to add excitement and flash to your main event. If guests cannot see where they are going, see the event, or cannot get in the mood your outdoor festival will be a visual bore.
Be sure to include lighting equipment at your event:
- Followspot lights
- LED lights
- Moving fixtures
- Conventional lights
Another reason to have the right lighting at your event? Safety. Good lighting along pathways, in tents, and other important areas will keep guests safe and comfortable.
Make Your Event Safer With Staging
Safety is of the utmost importance at your outdoor summer festival. A safe environment for performers, workers, and attendees will make the event enjoyable and worry free.
The right staging will help keep your crowd in a contained area and safely away from equipment, vendor areas, and rough ground:
- Fencing, barricades, and cable ramp
- Tent utility lighting
- Electrical generators and outdoor lighting towers
- Stage decks and safety railings
In addition, staging, combined with decor, will give your festival the look and feel you want in a reliable and clean fashion.
Get The Audience Pumped Up With Audio
Audio equipment is better than ever these days, and artists are demanding the best they can get. Make sure their creative efforts are showcased on point and not lost in the crowd with:
A clear sound with well-maintained and working equipment will do wonders in making your outdoor festival this summer one to remember!
Budget Carefully & Prepare For All Weather
As with all projects and events, budget carefully to ensure that you do not spend more than you can afford. Work with the authorities in your desired area, your AV company, and any catering and entertainment you have in mind to determine costs. Be sure to leave some budget room for those inevitable unexpected last minute expenses.
Weather is unpredictable so be sure to prepare for all sorts of weather with proper gear such as sunscreen, ponchos, sheltered areas, etc. Make sure to have an inclement weather plan that the entire staff onsite understands and follows.
