Largest Ever Coachella with eps america

With an expanded site and increase in attendees, eps america supplies Coachella with barricade and ground support

With the expansion of Coachella Valley’s Music and Arts Festival, long time vendor, eps america supported the increase in size and attendance with barricade and ground support. In years past, eps always supplied its GIGS barricade to the massive electronic-music stage, the Sahara Tent but this year, due to the increase in attendees, eps added a GIGS Truck Gate to the barricade configuration around the VIP section after weekend one.

Lead Supervisor, Pat Bohlen, explained, “there were so many people in the VIP section after weekend one that in an effort to alleviate stress on the patrons and staff, we added a Truck Gate to the VIP entrance which allowed us to close off the area once it hit its capacity.”

GIGS Truck Gates ideal to limit entry of attendees or protect an area


eps’ GIGS Truck Gates are wide enough to allow vehicles through but can also be used to limit entry of attendees, protecting an area from being overcrowded. Opening outwards, they can be released quickly should there be the need to evacuate. This year eps america doubled its inventory of GIGS Truck Gates and looks forward to introducing them to other site designs this festival season.

This year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was literally bigger than ever before. In 2016 the City of Indio had approved the festivals expansion in acreage at Empire Polo Fields and come 2017 they made use of the space. Goldenvoice increased available tickets to over 120,000, and added the Sonora Stage, their seventh stage. With an increase in space, stages and patrons, eps america was proud to be there with barricade and ground cover.

In addition to supplying barricade to the Gobi, Mohave, Sahara stages and FOHs, as well as the Outdoor Theater, eps supplied the festival with its aluminum LD Panels, as an easily deployable and effective solution to protect the natural turf from heavy machinery back stage.
