Bestival co-promoters launch event consultancy

The co-promoters of Bestival have launched House of Bestival, it was announced today.

Ziggy Gilsenan and Josie da Bank have come together to create the new event consultancy, creative production company, and prop hire agency. House of Bestival will give promoters access to unique, cutting edge event expertise.

House of Bestival will combine consultation services for marketing, experiential and live event briefs. The company will also use Bestival’s own handcrafted themes, including Bollywood, Desert Island Disco and Reggae Roots, plus a selection of micro-venues, bars, hand-painted signage, furniture and props.

“Our ethos is about developing an original, killer concept and turning it into an epic consumer experience that becomes the centerpiece to a truly effective marketing campaign or an unforgettable event,” Gilsenan said.

Since launching, House of Bestival has already worked on BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Nile Rodgers’ Chic album launch party at the Roundhouse, and Kylie Minogue’s British Summer Time gig in Hyde Park.
