For us, July was largely dominated by music and festivals – from Glastonbury, Latitude, Wireless and Somersault, to the literary festival at Hay, The Henley Regatta and, one of our favourite’s; Goodwood’s Festival of Speed. We also toured with Stereophonics, Netsky and Passenger, taking in some of the best European festivals including ‘Rock am Ring’ in Germany and Belgium’s ‘Pukkelpop’.
As well as sending 13 trucks down to the south of France as part of a week-long event for Facebook on the beach in Cannes, our trucks were working out of several prestigious UK venues including Kensington Palace, Blenheim Palace and Somerset House for the popular Summer Series. From our London depot we provided a float for MTV as they took part in the 44th Annual London Pride Parade. As the biggest Pride parade to date, it took almost 4 hours to make its way past hundreds of thousands of spectators between Baker Street and Whitehall.
Here at Head Office, we took delivery of 3 of our new trailers which were immediately dispatched to London where Ed Sheeran was playing his first ever stadium gigs – three nights at Wembley followed by two nights at Croke Park, Dublin. We were on-site for the duration to manage the transport logistics at both venues which involved 37 staging & production trucks at Wembley, and a police escort through Dublin to accompany in the 21 meter-long stage towers. Have a look on our Facebook Page for some behind the scenes photos and pictures of the show.
