Extreme Structures does Electric Picnic


It’s been a crazy few weeks for us here at Extreme Structures however with festival season coming to an end we finally have a chance to show you what we’ve been up to and we’re going to start off with Electric Picnic.

Electric Picnic is one of the biggest weekends of the summer for both festival goers and event companies. With over half of our stock in tow and a brand new mezzanine structure ready for launch we headed to Stradbally for a crazy couple of weeks. We worked with a handful of different companies over the two weeks including Verve The Live Agency, Festival Republic and Oxjam.

Perhaps our biggest job at the picnic this year was the launch of our new Mezzanine structure. It was used as Electric Ireland’s throwback party venue and was a huge success. It played host to acts such as Bananarama and Snap who performed ‘Rhythm is a Dancer’ on the closing night to a crowd of very excited festival goers. You can check out the video here! We’ll be posting up more about this structure in the coming weeks so be sure to keep an eye out!

We were also back at Pink Moon Camping this year helping them create their luxury camping area. There we set up a 25m x 18m beige stretch tent for their chill out area complete with pallet furniture sets and bean bags. This area is a favourite among Electric Picnic goers with certain spots for next year already sold out!

Rabo Direct’s Tour de Picnic was back with a bang this year and it was great to see so many people take part. Here we set up our beige 15m x 15m stretch tent as well as our 10.5m x 7.5m yellow stretch tent. Our crew also set up two of our platinum 9m x 6m stretch tents for Festival Republic which were used for the Soul Kidz area along with a 10.5m x 15m beige stretch tent for Exhibit Design’s Cute Hoor area.

We worked alongside Grooveyard and Intent Productions for the set up of their Logic area. This structure played host to many well-known Dj’s including John Gibbons and Bongo Steve.

The Oxjam stage  returned this year where we installed a 10.5m x 15m beige stretchy along with a 6m x 3m stage. Judging by the #LivefromtheOxjamStage videos  it was a huge success. We  set up a red 10.5m x 15m stretchy for the #JustEatRetreat. Here the Just Eat waiters took orders from campers and delivered their food to them, even if it meant tackling the crazy crowds at the main stage.

So that’s it for another year for Electric Picnic. It was a long and tiring two weeks but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We can’t wait to see what new products we’ll have for you guys by this time next year.
