WOMAD Festival

WOMAD Festival 2015 – Generators supplied from Powerline

Powerline undertook this event when it moved to its current home at Charlton Park in Malmesbury, the new site gave the new supplier a blank canvas to devise a package that would power this famous festival.

We invested heavily to ensure that the event was a success in terms of power. Despite some hideous weather conditions in the first few years the event has become a firm favorite amongst the crew that work on it each year.

The site utilises almost every aspect of our service portfolio and is a showcase of Powerline at its best. Jim Creed comments that “the teams from all disciplines have worked hand in hand for so many years that there is a great family feeling amongst the crews that work here, this makes it so much easier when challenges inevitably present themselves”. The power crew supply everything electrical from the very first day production arrive onsite to mark out until the last man leaves after every spec of litter and human trace has been cleared away. The festoon runs alone add up to many kilometres and new aspects added in each year ensure the event stays fresh to the punters and a continued challenge to the suppliers.
