What part does Logistics play in Festivals?

Festival logistics covers all aspects related to the handling and transportation of your equipment as well as the full transportation and set-up of your promotional goods in addition to the operational processes for getting your supplies. Whether your goods require collection, warehousing or distribution, our festival logistics are specifically designed to help with the smooth running of scheduled events from start to finish. So performers can deliver a breathtaking experience.

What are the types of festival logistics

From music fes­ti­vals to arts and culture festivals no two festivals are the same. The same goes for the required festival logistics. Music festivals require the transportation of instruments, props and merchandise whereas arts and culture festivals may require sculptures or art work to be transported. With our 50-plus years of experience in festival and music logistics as well as work with some of the biggest festivals in the UK we understand that no two festivals are the same.


We hold all the relevant accreditations to handle your festival’s goods safely.
