Landscape, Vegetation & Your Venue

What many don’t realize when it comes to preparing a venue for a concert, show or any kind of entertainment event, weather & nature are two very important factors to consider. A great event to reference that was extremely effected by weather conditions is the Sugarland concert that took place at the Indiana State Fair Grounds in August of 2011. Even with multiple severe thunderstorm warnings and advisement from experts, the venue planners & band were more concerned about the rescheduling of the concert than the safety of themselves and the concert go-ers. In the end, the stage collapsed killing 7 innocent people and seriously injuring 58 others.

When it comes to concerts or events the people coming to enjoy the event are more focused on the atmosphere and the show they came to see than what is going on around them. If the event wasn’t canceled because of some storm warning it must not be that bad right? However, if you stop and take a look at your surroundings if a storm were to hit would the concert go-ers, staff, entertainers and all others be safe? Are the trees around the area and other foliage well taken care of so as not to have any falling trees, branches, etc. that could potentially become dangerous or deadly? A local arborist based out of Phoenix, Arizona states, “you would be surprised at just how dangerous seemingly safe landscaping can be”. Gilbert, once a small town in AZ has begun to grow over the years with many young families and young adults moving to the neighborhoods to raise families and enjoy the many different events that can be found throughout Gilbert. That being said tree trimming Gilbert experts, All About Trees say they stay busy with palm tree upkeep, making sure the trees and other foliage around the event areas stay well maintained, healthy and full of nutrients. A lot of the time trees become dangerous because of the lack of care they have received. If they are not getting the water, nutrients, and care that are needed they can start to die and become hazardous.

Music Festival Waste Managment

In one of our last blog posts, we wrote about the importance of sponsorships to a music festival as well as the great marketing technique for the sponsoring business. This is just one example of the intricate parts needed to put on a music festival and an amazing one at that. 

Amazing Music Festivals Are Born Out Of The Small Details

That’s right, amazing music festivals are born out of the small details. From the festival gear & apparel available to the outhouses, vendors and band line up all the big and small parts create the festival itself. One of the biggest factors to consider when presenting a festival is waste management. From sanitary bathroom facilities to sinks and handwashing areas and the disposal of waste, all of these matters! Working with a reputable portable bathroom company and utilizing large on-site dumpsters that can be hauled away easily are great ways to get a handle on waste management. Not to mention the more efficiently you handle waste conditions at a festival the easier and more sanitary the clean up is after the festival is over. Having a sanitation and waste disposal issue in the midst of a large festival can not only be problematic and stressful it can also create larger issues that can threaten the success of the festival itself.

Check out your area and do your due diligence when it comes to waste management and sanitation services. Finding a company you like and trust can make all the difference. A lot of times companies will work with you giving incentives should you utilize their services on a contractual basis. Florida based company, Dumpster Today, offers free delivery and pick up of your dumpster taking one less thing off your list of things to worry about. That means should you need the dumpster emptied every day, which is highly likely, you just schedule a pickup time and let them take care of the waste disposal.

Music Festival Sponsorship- Incredible Marketing Concept

Much of the success behind creating spectacular music festivals are the sponsors that help to make the festival possible. But not only does sponsorship benefit the festival at hand along with the musicians it also benefits the business. In fact, becoming a music event/festival sponsor has many great benefits and can have a very positive impact on the business providing sponsorship.

Perhaps the only downfall of becoming a sponsor of a music festival is finding the right fit when it comes to genres of music or festival style.

Why is pairing your business with the right music important for your brand?

One of the positive aspects of becoming a sponsor is that you have the ability to use the bands performing as a way to gauge the demographics of people that you will be reaching. This, in turn, helps you to showcase or bring awareness to your brand in the right capacity.

201 Wrap is a paint protection film & vehicle wrap business out of Florida. They began sponsorship of music festivals after adding a PPF to one of the band’s tour buses. They loved the band and the music and saw an opportunity to not only market their business but to also be a part of the music they identified with, while also helping to bring the community together. There is something about the love for music and the rush of enjoying it live in a concert-like venue.
