CASE STUDIES BARCLAYCARD PRESENTS BRITISH SUMMER TIME (HYDE PARK) AEG Live commissioned us to manage all the their front of house and backstage bars for up to 65,000 customers per day, over two weekends featuring two sold out dates for the Rolling Stones – housed inside stunning buildings and bar environments. We worked alongside Barclaycard to deliver cashless and touch to pay across 15 bars on site inclduing 5 cocktail bars, a winery, a pub and all the backstage bars for the VIP’s and artists which included Bon Jovi, Lionel Ritchie, J-Lo and more in 2013. Over 800 staff were deployed each weekend.
FIELD DAY Field Day returned to Victoria Park in East London at the beginning of June. We have worked with the event since 2006 and we ran all 14 outdoor bars including a prestigious backstage VIP cocktail bar. Cold draught lager, local craft beer and ‘pokey’ Mojito’s were the order of the day for the 35,000 guests.
SECRET GARDEN PARTY The Secret Garden Party has grown a loyal, eclectic and fun following in its history and we are proud to have worked with the event since 2005. Cocktails are always a popular with this crowd and we didn’t disappoint – especially our head mixologist’s “secret” Bloody Mary recipe – it was the talking point of the weekend and certainly helped with the hangovers! As well as the main outdoor bars provided a rum bar on a pirate ship in the middle of the lake (which was only accessible via canoe-water-taxi) and was consequently exploded into a flurry of fireworks on Saturday night... 14
