For the second year, FGH Security returned to keep people safe by overseeing the security and crowd management at The Beat-Herder Festival. The event is now in its 14th year and was its best one yet set in the beautiful Ribble Valley, near Sawley around the forest surrounding Dockber Farm.
The unique festival was a sell-out with over 12,000 revellers attending to see acts including Rudimental, Groove Armada, Sister Sledge & Basement Jaxx. The music kicked off on Friday 12th July and ran until midnight Sunday. Altogether more than 80 artists played across the weekend with a wide range of food stalls and entertainment on site. When it comes to Beats & Barminess, it has no equal. This independent festival has changed rapidly since 2006, growing in reputation and stature.
To keep people safe across the weekend our team provided secure search teams on entry, roaming campsite response, the local area and internal strategic static guarding, wristband checking on entry to the festival arena and guarding on gates, stages and unique areas to oversee the stage equipment, artists and crew. Our team, while delivering our friendly professional service we are renowned for working in partnership with Beat-Herder event organisers, the local constabulary, medical teams and social service to make sure we made a difference to the quality of the event.
Amy Stanley, Days Manager for Beat-Herder 2019 said, “we have supplied more than 200 team members to Beat-Herder this year. This is our second year on-site at the festival with team members deployed on campsites, main gates, in the main arena, woodland areas and on the main stages. The weekend has gone extremely well, all of the attendees are having a great time.’
