How to choose the best backstage furniture hire for concerts & festivals

How to choose the best backstage furniture hire for concerts & festivals

We are fast closing in on the festival season here in the UK, and Event Hire UK are lined up to be heavily involved in some capacity or other for many of them.

If you hadn't noticed, a few months ago, our team was awarded the 'Best Backstage / VIP Supplier' award at the Festival Supplier Awards 2022, recognising our efforts, particularly at Creamfields, last year.  Of course, it's always nice for your efforts to be recognised, though we're conscious that we mustn't rest on our laurels, and strive to be ever-more client agile this year.

And it's the work we do behind the scenes at festivals and concerts which goes above and beyond. There are plenty of major artists playing the UK this year, including Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Stereophonics, Harry Styles, Taylor Swift and many others, and that's not even mentioning Bille Eilish, Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Diana Ross, all of whom are playing Glastonbury.  And that's naming just a few!

This summer looks like being a brilliant one if you enjoy live music events, with many tours carried over from 2021 after COVID, and a real energy and thirst amongst the public to get back to some sort of sense of normality.

Every concert and festival venue will need to kit out their backstage areas in keeping with the quality of artists that are playing the gig.   A Portakabin in a field just isn't going to cut the mustard any more.  The best artists expect the best, despite it being a temporary event and, often, in the middle of the said field!

When it comes to furniture hire for backstage areas, you can count on the team here at Event Hire UK to supply you with everything you need, including make-up mirrors for the hair and make-up areas, along with lounge furniture for the green room, and also cafe tables and chairs for the buffet and catering areas.  At the same time, artists will require garment rails and hangers for all their costume changes, as well as a fridge so that they can enjoy a well deserved drink after the show.  Then, you have specific requirements for specific artists - Rod Stewart, for instance, loves to watch football in his spare time, and so our entertainment hub, for example - which includes a TV, Sony Playstation and music speakers - is the perfect accessory!  

And, above all, let's not forget the modular pipe and drape which you can fit together to create runs of curtains, helping you to section off temporary dressing rooms, catering zones, green rooms and other backstage areas.  You really can kit out your areas in a professional and engaging way!

Our team here at Event Hire UK has years of experience in this field and welcome the opportunity to work with you as a concert promoter or organiser.  With this in mind, don't hesitate to browse and place your secure order online 24/7 and put your faith in the hands of the experts, as many others in your industry already do - you won't be disappointed!
