BoomTown appoints Mojo Barriers

Mojo Barriers has secured a contract with independent festival BoomTown Fair, which takes place 13-16 August.

BoomTown Fair has called upon Mojo Barriers to design and deliver its stage barriers for this year’s festival, which will take place at Matterley Estate in Hampshire.

Mojo Barriers, which recently supplied AC/DC’s tour, will supply 450 metres of stage barrier, 200 metres of bar barrier and 13 line-up gates across the festival site.

Set in its own unique, fantasy festival town, Boomtown features nine different districts with winding streets and a host of bespoke entertainment venues, including a casino, hotel, hairdressers and roller disco.

BoomTown Fair is now in its 7th year and this year will witness performances from Mungos Hi-fi, John Butler Trio, Dreadzone and hundreds of artists across 22 stages, including a new main stage.

“There is a lot of original thinking going on within the independent festival scene and we’re excited to be working alongside BoomTown Fair, which is widely renowned for its unique character,” Mojo Barriers’ UK manager Kevin Thorborn said. “Moving away from the traditional five or six stage festival format, with its own crowd dynamics within a temporary town setting and we have worked with the organisers to identify the ‘hotspots’ to ensure festival-goers are kept safe, deploying crowd barriers where densities are at their highest.”

Mojo Barriers has reported an increase in work with independents in 2015, after it secured new contracts with 51st State, Found Festival and Glastonbudget Festival.
