One of many automobile-themed festivals coming back with a bang in 2022 is Bug Jam, the ultimate celebration of all things VW. Taking place at Santa Pod raceway this July (22nd-24th), the Outdoor Stages team has once again been tasked with handling some of the most critical aspects of the festival.
With that in mind, let's tell you a little more about this festival and our role in ensuring that it's a runaway success.
Outdoor Stages Wins Event Production Contract for Bug Jam Festival at Santa Pod
Every year, the Santa Pod raceway plays host to Europe's largest meeting of VW enthusiasts. This vibrant and eclectic event manages to marry together attractions such as drag racing, live music, comedy performances, stunt displays, trade stands, and a massive funfair.
From VW Beetles to VW Campervans, many fans (and their vehicles) descend on this famous race track (nestled on the Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire border) to celebrate all things VW.
Given the sheer variety of activities and attractions on offer, we at Outdoor Stages have our work cut out to ensure that the event runs smoothly. We are, however, more than up for the challenge!
Full Technical Event Production for Bug Jam Festival Handed Over to Outdoor Stages
As the official stage and event production supplier for Bug Jam 2022, our team will be responsible for providing and managing all on-site stage production. This includes everything from supplying and setting up the stages to managing the PA systems and lighting for each performance area.
The main focus of our work will surround the installation of our 12m x 10m arc roof outdoor stage, which is fit to provide a focal point to even festivals of this size. We will spend a couple of days in the build-up to the event construction of this mammoth stage, including rigging the structure with top-notch lighting and sound equipment.
We will then finish off the stage with a couple of PA wings and matching LED screens to ensure all audience members enjoy a perfect view of the on-stage proceedings.
Even though this is a significant undertaking, we will be far from done, as we shall now explain.
Outdoor Stages to Provide and Operate a Further Five Arenas of Sound & Lighting
A huge slice of our event brief centres around bringing high-quality event production equipment (namely sound and lighting kit) to existing spaces across the festival footprint. From the comedy stage to the BugWam daytime music tent, we will be bringing our equipment and expertise to these locations to ensure a perfect show.
On top of these extras, we will also be operating all technical elements of the festival, including power considerations, sound mixing, and lighting operations. Talk about a busy few days!
We can't wait to get started on the works for this unique festival. Our team always loves a challenge, and this is also one of the most friendly festival atmospheres we get to work in over the summer season.
