The summer festival season is well underway, even if the Great British weather has other ideas! At the Brown Stock Festival in Essex, music fans were treated to performances by Tinie Tempah, Kelis, Scouting for Girls and dozens of other artists, as well as DJ sets by Mark Ronson and Netsky. The festival took place between Friday 8th and Sunday 10th July, 2016.
Running any kind of event involves tight coordination between the organisers, the security staff and other critical services, such as the medics. But it often isn’t worth buying a fleet of two way radios just for one weekend a year.
With that in mind, the organisers of the Brown Stock Festival got in touch to hire two way radio equipment from Brentwood.
Dealing With Diverse Crowds
Music festivals are loud, busy places, and attendees cover a huge demographic. The vast majority of festivals go off without a hitch. However, there’s always the possibility that there will be some mischief-makers.
With that in mind, we recommended that Brown Stock hired a Motorola DM1400 base station. When coupled with a fist mic and an antenna, this acts as a handy, fixed hub. A fixed unit is difficult to tamper with or steal, so this guarantees a reliable central point for communications.
Brown Stock’s hired base station was situated in the medical tent, with hand held units available for event staff to take and use across the site. The team hired Motorola DP1400 analogue radios, which have fantastic noise reduction capabilities – ideal for an event like a music festival. They are also water resistant – ideal for use indoors and out.
We also supplied D shape earpieces, which are ideal for busy, hands-on environments. Earpieces let radio users communicate discreetly, and keep abreast of developments in real time.
Affordable Peace of Mind
Running a festival requires precise planning, and the ability to react quickly to any security or medical incidents. With our two way radio hire service, you can benefit from the best equipment available, without the need to purchase outright. The Brentwood team can advise on the right equipment for the job, depending on the number of users, and the specifics of the event.
