Festivals

Since their inception, TESS has been involved in safety management for outdoor events and festivals.  Starting with the International Festival of the Sea in 1999, TESS moved decisively into music events and by 2016 counted Glastonbury, Leeds, Reading, WOMAD, Wireless, Download, NASS, Boardmasters, Soundclash as service-users.

Festivals present a range of safety challenges, including all the needs of pastoral care, camping and utilities which are normally a fixed installation for regular event venues.  TESS have unrivalled experience in developing practical solutions; whether it be for everyday challenges or major incident planning for the biggest events.

It is common for the TESS team to become embedded as part of the festival planning team, helping negotiate Licensing requirements, crowd management and public safety, through to onstage technical issues site and infrastructure planning.

No matter what your show content or the entertainment choice of your public; TESS offers dependable hands to help steer your event safely home.
