Tips for Surviving a Music Festival

Tip 1: Do your research ahead of time, and make sure you are fully prepared. Confirm:

  • Who the primary and secondary contacts are and how to reach them
  • How to gain access to the site
  • When units need to be delivered, serviced and picked up — dates and times
  • Where units are to be located
  • What issues have been experienced previously (so you can avoid them)

Tip 2: Get a map and scout the site beforehand so you can plan the best routes for your truck(s).

Tip 3: Have emergency and backup plans ready in case things don’t go according to plan. Additional units/services may be needed, routes may need to be changed, etc.

Tip 4: Have multiple employees work the event, if necessary, to keep units clean and stocked. Remember to charge accordingly.

Tip 5: Be prepared to see some weird things like drunk people or people on drugs, and don’t be surprised to find some weird things in the units as a result.

Tip 6: Remain patient and professional, even if other vendors setting up cause delays or concert-goers are obnoxious.

Tip 7: Get feedback after the event to find out what went well and if there were any problems so that you can avoid them next time.
