Leicester Music Festival 2014

EFS have been asked to provide ground protection for this amazing weekend summer music event over the weekend of 25th and 26th July. For the first time the playing surface at Welford Road – home of the infamous Leicester Tigers will play host to the inaugural Leicester Music Festival attracting tens of thousands of fans and a host of top bands and support acts. LMF Leisure, the event’s organisers have lined up an amazing variety of acts spanning all musical genres and timelines. From the start of this amazing idea they managed to sign Professor Green, Billy Ocean, Aswad , and Soul to Soul. Based on this fantastic line up, LMF have continued to attract the very latest and most popular talent with local girl and X Factor winner Sam Bailey performing alongside the winners of Britain’s Got Talent dance group Diversity together with The Saturday’s and Labyrinth performing at Leicester’s best ever live outdoor music event. As the specialists in sports ground protection, the ground staffs at this impressive and iconic venue were delighted to work with us in planning the logistics of ensuring the success of the festival whilst ensuring the grounds were safe. We will be installing over 6,500m² of Temp-A-Path during 24 hours to cover the entire playing surface, this will enable the riggers, support services and festival go-oers to work and enjoy the event without damaging the “precious turf”. We then have to ensure that the entire pitch is cleared and ready for play immediately after the event. The 2 day strip out allows the crews the required time to dismantle the staging and lighting gantries before the next event at the Welford Road ground. Jeremy Simpson – Business Development Manager of EFS said “We are well versed in protecting a wide variety of sporting arenas, our recent work protecting the turf at Wembley Stadium demonstrates that. Working with the ground staff at the Tiger’s has helped us to recommend and provide the right product”. He added “Both the organisers of the festival and the venue hosts were delighted with our suggestions and we look forward to assisting with this fantastic new music festival in the heart of Leicester.” * Watch the Promotional Video
