ID&C Support Festival Industry From the Ground Up

7 Nov

As the festival scene’s most recognised security wristband supplier, we’re showing our support for the industry’s indie-kids by sponsoring The Grass Roots Festival gong at the UK Festival Awards next week.

The annual Awards, which attract the who’s who of the festival industry, have seen Glastonbury, T in the Park, Mumford & Sons and Biffy Clyro pick up the coveted prizes in recent years. Organisers are expecting over 600 guests to the show, which moves this year, to London’s impressive Round House.

We took the decision to sponsor the Award following our work with LeeFest back in the summer. LeeFest, who previously won the Grass Roots Festival award in 2009, were recipients of a professional accreditation pack supplied by us.

Lee Denny at LeeFest had these kind words to say:
“’ID&C’s accreditation package was a dream come true – not only did it make the event safer and more secure, it made it more beautiful too. The products they provided brought together our crew, artists and dedicated fans in a way that I never thought a festival wristband could!”

The LeeFest Wristbands & Lanyards

Here at ID&C, we made a conscious effort to give something back to the industry’s inspiring newcomers, who we believe are a key ingredient to the growth of the festival business. LeeFest stood out for us because of their focus to offer the best possible experience for their fans.

As AIF (Association of Independent Festivals) members, we value the effort made by the festival freshmen who strive to bring amazing experiences to music lovers. Soon we’ll be launching a competition, giving one UK festival the chance to win the same package enjoyed by the team at LeeFest, so keep your eyes peeled!

The Grass Roots Festival Award winner will also receive a £1,500 bursary towards disability access training from Attitude is Everything, a prize kindly provided by Festival Republic.

We’re also showcasing our RFID wristbands at the UK Festival Conference which takes place at the HMV Forum before the Awards ceremony on November 15th.

All the best,
Craig

LeeFest and ID&C launch unique ‘VIPee’ Competition

25 Jul LeeFest VIPee

‘VIPee’ charity auction gives punters the chance to bid for festival tickets and win their very own luxury portaloo for the weekend.

Festival accreditation & access control company ID&C (that’s us!) is sponsoring the award winning* LeeFest’s unique competition to win festival tickets and… The world’s most glamorous portaloo.

The annual music festival in South-East London that began in a schoolboy’s back garden, is returning for its sixth year this summer. Headlined by the UK no.1 artist DJ Fresh, Fenech-Soler and British Sea Power, this grass roots gig has clearly established itself as a festival to be reckoned with.

LeeFest + ID&C VIPee Competition

Lee Denny, festival founder and director, measures the event’s growing success in terms of the portaloo count:
‘At the first festival, people had to use the toilet in my house, then the following year we invested in a single portaloo. Since then, the number has grown and this year we’ve got 39!’

To celebrate the new portaloo record, the LeeFest team are launching ‘VIPee’ – a charity auction with a twist! Punters will have the chance to bid for four festival tickets with all proceeds going straight to the London-based charity, Kids Company.

As a reward, the winning bidder will be crowned the ‘VIPee’ of LeeFest 2011 and given the key to their very own red carpeted and treat-filled portaloo for the weekend to share with their chosen few! Any winning bidders who already bought LeeFest tickets will have their original ticket money refunded.

The auction goes live on eBay TODAY at 6pm for a week. Search on eBay for ‘LeeFest VIPee’ and get bidding!
