Powerhire once again provided the rental generators and fuel tanks for this year’s Ramblin’ Man Fair in the idyllic setting of the beautiful Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent.
In it’s 3rd successive year this two day festival takes place at the end of July celebrating classic and contemporary rock, progressive rock, blues and country with its unique philosophy.…it’s a rock festival designed for rock fans by rock fans!
Due to it’s success, an additional stage was added for this year – The Grooverider Stage featuring Scorpion Child, Kyle Gass, Vintage Caravan and many more.
Described by Classic Rock Magazine as “the best new festival in Britain”, music & mud was definitely the theme for this years’ festival!
The weather definitely did not deter the crowds who came to see the 60+ bands from around the world coming together to create the ultimate festival experience including headliners Saxon, Extreme and ZZ Top, who delivered one of the most highly anticipated performances of the festival.
Rental generators were required to provide festival power in order to deliver this spectacular experience. Innovation Power who were providing the electrical distribution for the Ramblin’ Man Fair contacted our Sales Manager once again to discuss the rental generators that were required to supply enough power for the entire festival.
Being a locally based Company to Maidstone, Kent and due to our strong relationship with Innovation Power, they were keen to use our festival ready, super silent rental generators again for this year’s festival.
As the festival was bigger than the previous year, our Sales Manager liaised with the client on several occasions to put together the best rental package for the various live music stages, merchandise stalls, the luxury VIP area, the numerous bars and beer tents, eateries and the diverse accommodation of basic camping facilities to the luxury glamping areas.
Once agreed, the 23 rental generators and 21 fuel tanks were booked into the schedule by the rental coordinator and serviced accordingly before being transported to site a week prior to the start of the event.
On the agreed date Powerhire delivered and installed a variety of rental generators ranging from 30kVA to 500kVA along with the fuel tanks in accordance with the client’s festival power site map. All equipment was suitably tested and commissioned by our engineers to the satisfaction of the client before leaving site. An engineer was based on site as a precautionary measure to ensure that all equipment ran smoothly throughout the duration of the festival. Innovation Power were happy with the smooth running of our rental generators and fuel tanks, booking us in for the rental power for their next festival.
The 3rd year of Ramblin’ Man Fair was again a huge success with next years’ tickets already on sale!
