FOLD (Freak Out Let’s Dance) Festival is a 5000 capacity festival curated by Nile Rogers (Chic) held at Fulham Palace boasting artist the likes of Beck, Alison Moyet, Labrinth, Angie Stone and Chic which launched in the UK in 2016.
The Event Umbrella produced this event on behalf of Robomagic. As an inaugural event held on a beautiful but challenging site, it was vital that TEU worked closely with the landowners and the promoter to ensure that the delivery of the event was achieved with minimal impact to the site and to the budget as required by the promoter.
We worked closely with the local authorities and agencies to develop an event management plan that could be agreed by the Safety Advisory Group. Due to the historical nature of the site we had to follow extremely strict guidelines as to weight loading on the ground and vehicular access to the site was very limited.
The regulations attached to the site would have dissuaded most production companies from attempting an event of this scale. However we dealt with every regulation and problem solved to achieve an excellent customer experiences that sat within the requirements laid out by both palace and promoter.
