Summer Time, Festival Time

Summer time is always the busiest time for our hire department as we meet our commitments to festivals the length and breadth of the UK.

2016 is proving to be no different and this year has included supplying four different major festivals in just ten days. On Tuesday 5th July the systems for T in the Park and Wireless loaded out from Redditch for a Wednesday set up. Once the gigs came to an end on the Sunday evening the gear was shipped out to arrive back in Redditch on the Monday.

As soon as the trucks tipped on the Monday, the SSE Hire team set to unpacking, testing and repacking all the equipment so it would be ready to load out again the following day, this time to provide the PA for Lovebox and Latitude Festivals.
