Summerburst moves to Gärdet

and eps scandinavia helps moving

The Swedish Electronica Festival "Summerburst" originally started as a one day festival in Stockholm back in 2011. Since then the event, set up by Swedish promoter SPG Live, has constantly grown, selling 60.000 tickets in 2013 for Stockholm and the sister festival in Gothenborg together.

In 2014 Summerburst Stockholm has moved from its former venue Stockholm Stadion to the fields of Stockholm´s Gärdet, just opposite where 2 weeks earlier Metallica played Stockholm Fields. Moving from the grounds of a stadium with all the infrastructure in place it was quite a task preparing a "naked field" for the 2 stage areas plus catering and VIP facilities.

eps scandinavia helped preparing the site with 2.200 m² of Arena Panels, 18.000 (!) m² of Portafloor grass protection (the biggest area ever covered with Portafloor by eps scandinavia), 2.000 m² Hexagon floor cover, 1.400 m² Remopla floor cover and site material like flag poles.

So everything was well prepared for acts like David Guetta,Calvin Harris, Afrojack and others when doors opened for the first of two showdays on Friday the 13th. Those being a bit superstitious got their acknowledgement as a freaky storm destroyed tents and other material during the night after first show day. But with just a little delay for doors to open, the festival could be continued on Saturday.

The eps crew spent almost 2 weeks on site to set up their gear and after a separate show "Kent Fest" on Sunday, June 15th (with Swedish acts like Kent, Junip and Nina Persson amongst others) all material could be cleaned and packed to be moved forward to the next exiting summer events coming up during this busy Scandinavian season.
