Global Gathering VIP

Festival VIP

The Halo Group designed and built the festival VIP area at GlobalGathering in 2014. Our partnership with the festival organisers has grown year on year. Each season we add to the festivals infrastructure with a set of new and exciting installations. This year saw the introduction of a brand new two story festival VIP structure set within a hidden woodland location.

Our unique modular steel temporary structure system enabled us to create a framework for the build. Made up of light weight RSJ beams and connector bolts, it can quickly and easily be built to any configuration or design. Our system offered the perfect solution for the creation of our woodland set build, offering many solutions traditional structures cannot.

The Brief

Our client brief required a mezzanine temporary structure to house the festival VIP area which needed to feature a lounge on the second tier and a bar, DJ booth and dance floor at ground level. GlobalGathering asked us to take inspiration from the woodland setting so using a standard marquee would simply not answer the brief. We were also asked to incorporate a wet weather contingency into the design to safe guard against the notorious British weather. Key considerations also included designing a festival VIP area which could cater for up to 400 festival goers at any time.

The Solution

To achieve the look in the VIP Area we clad our steel frame with rustic waney edge timber, styled to resemble a giant tree house. Living foliage and floral detail was added to help blend the structure into its surrounding. A large stretch tent was then pitched over the top to act as a poor weather solution which spanned the dance floor and bar area beneath. The surrounding woodland was bathed in colour washes using up-lighters to bring the design to life. To add a fun twist we hung umbrellas, vintage bird cages and other creative props from trees as well as incorporating a range of bespoke seating booths into our overall design which even included 3 oversized jacuzzi's.
