Midas supplies Jockey Club Live events

Temporary power specialist Midas has provided power for 23 Jockey Club Live shows across seven racecourses this summer.

Beginning with Aintree in May, which saw acts such as Tom Jones and Deacon Blue perform in a 10,000 capacity structure, Midas have supplied events throughout the summer, concluding Jockey Club Live 2016 at Newmarket on 27 August.

Midas is in the second year of a three-year contract with Symphotech, the company managing production for Jockey Club Live.

Midas MD Dave Noble commented: “Jockey Club Live is a demanding schedule with so many dates close together at different venues, but Symphotech has good contractors working together and it’s a slick, successful operation.”

Symphotech director, Julian Spear, added: “Power is a vital part of the equation. It’s got to be right, every time, and Midas is a trusted component in the Jockey Club Live machine.

“It’s competitive; any minor changes aren’t a problem, which is crucial, and Dave and company keep running times to a minimum. I’m very pleased with the way all the dates have gone this year.”
