A Guide To Music Festivals

music festival

Music festivals are one of the UK’s favourite pastimes. Day by day increasing numbers of us are buying up huge quantities of tickets from festivals all across the UK. So what exactly feeds this demand for music festivals? in this guide we will look at why music festivals are so popular, what makes them unique and why most of us feel compelled to go to them.

What Is A Music Festival

A music festival is several concerts normally run over a set of different days. Typically festivals are held in rural locations and there are often camping facilities available as well as shops and  food stalls. Music festivals can vary wildly depending on the type of music being played as well as where the festival is being held. One increasingly popular festival that takes place once a year in Cornwall is known as board masters. Board masters was originally started in the 1980s and since then has continued to grow in popularity. Board masters is tailored towards surfers and people who like watersports but everyone is welcome at the festival. A variety of different artists feature and there is also often surfing taking place on the beach right next to where the festival is taking place. Another music festival that is extremely popular is reading and Leeds. Each year tends of thousands of music fans descend on Reading and Leeds in England to here a variety of artists perform. What makes this festival different from others is there are thousands of fans that camp at the festival over its duration and it has a different atmosphere from other festivals where camping may not be as accessible.

What’s Involved In Running Music Festivals

When it comes to the running of music festivals there is a lot that goes on in the background to ensure that everything runs smoothly as possible. One of the most important aspects of running music festivals is the staff that are working there.  It is essential for festival organisers to source the best possible staff to ensure that their event runs smoothly. An example of an event not going smoothly to begin with was the London Olympics. This was almost a disaster for the UK as security firm G4S notified the organisers months before the Olympics was due to start that they would not be able to provide the numbers of staff expected for the London Olympics. Therefore the army had to step in in order to manage security for the event. This is a prime example of a company failing to fulfil what it promised for a high profile event.

As well as the companies that are sourced the staff on the ground can really make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful music festival overall. E.G the greeting some people receive as they enter the event may influence their overall perception of the event in the end. To conclude music festivals are only likely to continue growing in the years to come and continue to provide a platform for new artists as well as important trips for devout music fans.

Cosmetic Dentist in Manchester | Facts About Cosmetic Dentistry

Before visiting a cosmetic dentist in Manchester, here are some facts that you should know.

Cosmetic Dentistry Can Correct a Number of Issues

People seem to think that cosmetic surgery is all about aesthetics. Many people do get cosmetic dentistry treatment to fix issues with the look or form of teeth. But cosmetic dentistry can also benefit functionality as well as being used as a reconstructive measure. If you have a tooth that is chipped, cracked or damaged in some way (such as poor enamel), then cosmetic dentistry can be used to not only fix this, but alleviate some of the sensitivity that you may be experiencing.

Variety of Options

There are a variety of options when it comes to cosmetic dentistry in Manchester. There are a number of treatments that can be customised to each individual’s facial structure and feature. Some of the many cosmetic dentistry treatments include;

  • Inlays/onlays or porcelain fillings
  • Composite bonding – corrects slight imperfections is a quick and painless manner
  • Teeth whitening – used to break through stains and brighten smile
  • Dental veneers – corrects a number of cosmetic flaws in one go
  • Dental implants – for single or multiple tooth replacement

Pain and Anxiety Free

If dental anxiety is what’s holding you back from getting cosmetic treatment, there is a solution. Many cosmetic dental practices can offer sedation to patients who feel overcome when sitting in the dentist’s chair. Depending on the severity of the procedure and your anxiety levels will determine the type of sedation you will need. Speak to your cosmetic dentist in Manchester for more information.

Many People Don’t Know Their Options

Even though there are many different cosmetic dentistry treatments, many people still don’t ask about them. It is usually the dentist’s recommendation or suggestion that makes them explore the possibilities of cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Whitening is the Most Requested Procedure

Teeth whitening is the most requested and more popular procedure. This may be due to the fact that people see it as a quick fix that guarantees results. Crowns, bridges and veneers are also common, for reconstructive purposes but many don’t ask for them and are instead offered them as a solution.

Cosmetic Dentistry is an Investment for the Future

Research has shown that when we get older, our smile still makes an impact on people on first impression, no matter how much our other features change. Not only this but getting treatment now can save your natural teeth in the long run and actually work out cheaper.

It’s an Art as Well as a Science

Cosmetic dentistry is an art form. Some cosmetic procedures such as veneers and teeth whitening can be performed by your dentist. But for others, such as the remodelling of a smile, you may need to go to someone a lot more specialised as this type of treatment takes continuing education and specialised training in order to understand the structure of the face along with the dimensions of a smile in order for it to look perfect.

Hiring Event Crew Agencies to Erect Tensile Structure at LC Carnival

event manager

For the most recent LC Carnival, we decided to do something a bit different with the structures we had at the event. We hired in some event crew agencies who helped us to erect a tensile structure in the form of a circus tent. We think the nature of the structure really added to the event and looked fantastic on site.

Find out how it went on-site in this article today.

The Tensile Structure Trend

Nowadays, if you attend a festival in the UK or abroad you are bound to run into some form of tensile structure. This modern form of the temporary building is proving to be extremely popular at festivals and carnivals worldwide. In order to jump in on this trend, we had to make sure to find something unique that celebrated the LC Carnival event. In the end, we went with VBS Structures who have plenty of experience in providing a brilliant tensile structure.

Circus Tent Style

When looking at which tensile structure to choose for our carnival, we debated between the modern white style which is often seen in art galleries or exhibitions, and the circus tent style often seen at festivals. We decided, in the end, to go for the more circus tent style as it conveyed the sense of fun and excitement that we want everyone to feel when attending the LC Carnival. Our choice of colours, in the end, was a class red and yellow combination, matching many of the key themes of our carnival.

Perfect for a Carnival

The light structure ensures that people can party into the night with shelter, but also is not a stuffy space. Once the event crew agencies had erected the structure, it became the perfect party space for all of our carnival attendees. Not to mention, this type of tensile structure is far easier to erect and take down than, for example, a building made of walls and a ceiling.

Event Crew Agencies for Construction

Not only did we have to source the perfect team for our tensile structure circus tent, but we also needed to find the right event crew agencies to erect the thing. There are a few companies we normally go with, but on this occasion we found TenTen Events to be really reliable. They had our structure up quickly and it looked fantastic at the Carnival site.

Carnival Loadout

Not only were our event crew agencies quick to have our tensile structure erected, but they were also brilliant when it came to our carnival loadout. The best thing about this type of structure was that it was easier to take down and store into the transport, than perhaps a more solid structure may have been. It ended up being one of the fastest load-outs that LC Carnival has had!

How the Leicester Carnival Could Benefit from a Power Stacker Lift

festival prepare

Here at the Leicester Caribbean Carnival, we have so much equipment needed around the time of the festival, and which we share with various other events throughout the year. It can be a real struggle trying to ensure that all of the gear is stored correctly. On top of that, we need to find a way in which we can move and lift the various props that we use for our shows and events. After a bit of brainstorming and some research, we found that the perfect solution may be a piece of equipment called a power stacker lift. Usually used in industrial environment, we think that the benefits could transfer well to our needs at the Carnival.

Read on to find out more about the power stacker lift and how we want to incorporate it into our day-to-day.

Helping Store the Light and Sound Equipment

The first way in which we want to utilise the benefits of a power stacker lift is in storing all of our light and sound equipment. We have a lot of equipment which we store in a compact storage unit meaning some shelving and so on is relatively high up. It is both dangerous and stupid for us to try to lift the equipment, so we have to find a machine which could do this for us- the power stacker lift.

Lifting Props onto Stages

Another lifting problem we have, often comes in the form of lifting props onto the stage as the venues we use in Leicester do not have a ramp or lift facility. Instead, we would suggest using a power stacker lift to get the items where they need to go!

Transporting Props or Equipment

The next issue we often have is getting our equipment or props from A to B. This includes either getting them into the vans to transport from workshop to venue, or just getting them from one area of the venue to another. We believe that a power stacker lift, or even a somewhat similar form of equipment, would be great for helping us to do this.

Help Us Raise Money for a Power Stacker Lift!

With all of this in mind, we are looking to invest in a power stacker lift for the festival. Which we will endeavour to lend to other community events who need the equipment throughout the year. However, for this we may need your help. We are in the process of applying for grants from both charity and government for the equipment, but any donations would be gratefully received. If we do receive the grant funding, we will put this money back into helping those who need it in the Caribbean community of Leicester!
