Year 4 of the festival and my third year working in production and operations for this fantastic independent festival created by inspiring artists and experienced event professionals.

This year we moved site to a field nearby the old site. The opportunity here was we had one flat field to work with which was smaller and made it easier to plan and manage.

Last year I worked on developing the structure of the project and team and this year took on the responsibility for designing the plan and team for the following functional areas of the festival. On top of this, I was assessed as Safety Officer (Event Controller) as part of my NVQ Level 4 Spectator Safety Management, which I am proud to say I passed and on track to receive my qualification.

The areas I was responsible for included:

  • Accreditation
  • Ticketing
  • Security
  • Volunteers
  • Production
  • Crowd safety
