Team Love Summer – We Thank You

IMG_9646

Well my Lovelies…. What Can I say, we’re home now and had 24hrs sleep after 2 weeks Funemployment in the fields with you all. It still hasn’t quite sunk in yet what you all achieved, but one thing I know is that this year it really came together, the hard work and dedication that has been put into this event by a huge number of people over 2017 really shone through, control of the event is no longer with a few people it has spread through to others who have most definitely picked up the ball and run with it, you blew us away, beyond anything we could dream of.

During the clean-up process we have had a chance to reflect on the combined achievement of us all and feel we have all created something very special. Moving forward into 2018 we already have our License in place and have taken a decision that we will NOT be increasing the size of the event, our focus will remain on the quality of our entertainment and production provision. The Performers, Entertainers & Production Crews have 200% proved this year that this is where our future lies, the show that you provided for us this year was phenomenal for such a small event.

Love Summer 2017 - Tim Francis - 25

All our site crew from the build\break crews to Stewards, Medical & Security have grafted this year and it certainly showed, it humbles us greatly and we are proud to be working with each and every one of you. One thing is for certain the place was run by a TEAM, the event didn’t need YOU the whole place was YOU, you cannot direct something like this, it’s dynamic and just has to happen, hence the quality of the outcome depends entirely on the attitude and approach of these people, there’s no Manual or Job Spec, there’s no dress rehearsal or dry-run, there’s little money and not a lot of thanks, it’s bang in your face from gates open and TEAM LOVE SUMMER the results speak for themselves.

Love Summer 2017 - Tim Francis - 2

Over the coming year we have made a decision to channel all our work into Love Summer alone, at times this year we became stretched due to involvement with other events, you have our assurance that we will be working for the next 51 weeks of the year to help build on the success you have all created. With over 800 Crew on site it is going to take us a little while to thank you all and it’s now almost impossible for me to get everyone in a single post without missing people out but I will try to make a start below and will be giving full coverage to you all on our website over the coming weeks:-

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

Ladies & Gentlemen

Please see below for our Rogues Gallery

Portable-Gas-Stove2

A DANGEROUS OFFENDER

Portable-Gas-Stove1

THE WORK OF THE DEVIL!

Seriously, I was at yet another festival 2 weeks ago that resulted in a customer having serious burns from one of these stoves, requiring an Air Ambulance to site. It leaked in the tent and then when ignited with the “sparker” the gas blew up inside! Same thing happened at Love Summer in 2013 but thankfully we were closer to the Hospital!

The Burns were Horrific!!

If you intend bringing one of these to the festival then it is essential for the safety of yourself, family and campers around you that you follow the Safety Rules for these appliances.

  • Always follow the instructions when installing the cylinder, the aerosol stoves can be quite difficult and if inserted incorrectly it is possible to ignite the appliance with a major gas leak present.
  • Never change or insert a gas cylinder inside a tent or building.
  • Never cook inside a tent 
  • Ensure the stove an any liquids are properly secured when cooking particularly if children are present, never leave a stove unattended.
  • Never operate or change a cylinder whilst intoxicated. 

We cannot stress enough how important this is, so many accidents occur every year at festivals with these stoves.

We have so much great food at Love Summer that you shouldn’t need to cook too much anyway, we see lots of food thrown away at the end of the event as peeps bring it and never cook it.

fridge

Gas Fridges – These bad boys are no better, I have witnessed 2 huge fires started by them one was at Newnham Park, both ruined lovely Camper Vans. I have never worked out why anyone wants to spend £15 on gas to keep £10 worth of food cold. A few ice packs or even a bag of ice in the cool box is usually good enough for a couple of days.

Stay Safe Party People xx

A Peak at The Site Plan

IT’S CALLED CABARAVE

We can’t wait to get My Bad Sister on site…. These girls are on Fire at the moment, on it ain’t the half of it… Check out their website here:-

http://mybadsister.com/

Check out this one out Rave Like an Egyptian…. This is gonna go right off!!!!!!!

These ladies are multi talented, they are accomplished singers, dancers and an absolute heap of other stuff too……..

We first listened to them when we kept hearing “stolen” samples of their work in DJ’s mixes left right and centre and they stood out,  So we made it top priority to seek them out and book them for 2017 – Top of our Booking List!

There’s loads more on their website go check them out

http://mybadsister.com/

and DJ’s next time you think to “borrow” their work….. Take a few samples from this one 😉

Festival Toilet Talk

loo-2

What is it about Festivals & Loo’s! Well I suppose its quite simple….. Some of them are GOPPING!!! You pay all that cash for your ticket and some events fail to provide even basic sanitation.

Now over the years I’ve seen things in portable loos that you just can’t un-see, it’s like a scar that you carry with you always…… Now! for our little people this can even be something that puts them off coming to Festivals in the first place….. Soooooooo! at Love Summer we have fully plumbed in FLUSHING TOILETS & this year we will be having TWICE AS MANY as you have told us this is something you like to see at events.

loo-1

We still have lots of portable loos dotted around the site and loos for peeps with mobility impairment will also be available. As with any loos you can have loads but if you don’t clean them they’re pretty useless. All loos are serviced by the provider on a daily basis and we have on-site cleaning crews on-site, all Loos are numbered so please report any problems to Stewards.

ACCESS TO ALL FACILITIES COMES AS PART OF THE STANDARD TICKET PRICE

PRIVATE PORTABLE LOOS

PRODUCT009

If you would like your own private loo for the weekend these can be booked on the website by CLICKING THE IMAGE ABOVE

In previous years we have placed private loos right in your camp, this isn’t great as you and your neighbours end up camped next to it all weekend. This year they will be placed on the edges of the campsite in blocks and you will be assigned one (with key)  in the nearest block to you.

That’s That All Sorted Then 🙂
