Download Festival 2013

Providing one of the most essential services to Download 2013 was Portable Toilets Ltd.  Having worked with organisers Live Nation on many of their other events, including Hard Rock Calling and BT London Live, the supplier had over 1,200 Porta-John’s on site at the Donington Event.  They also supplied VIP trailer toilets, shower facilities, headline artist units, high dependency units and vacuum units for the guest area.

Arriving on 3rd June, the company spent a total of three weeks onsite, finally departing with the last unit on Friday 21st June.  In a significant change to onsite operational procedures, Live Nation implemented a ‘hazards off’ rule that meant all vehicles entering the site were forbidden from using their hazard warning lights.  Using hazard lights prevents a vehicle from using its indicators to signal its intention to turn left or right, which caused a collision at last year’s festival.  Portable Toilets’ Sales Director Ben Cruise said that this worked extremely well.

“We’re happy to report that we experienced no issues with the new procedure.  Due to the nature of what we supply, we have lot’s of onsite vehicle movement, so anything that creates a safer environment for those vehicles and the people around them is welcomed by us.”

Having been involved with the Download Festival since it started, the use of more trackway this year had a noticeable impact on the company’s operations, as Ben explained.

“Our job is always easier when we are able to safely navigate around a site.  Event though we were fortunate enough to have good weather, the additional trackway in the campsite areas allowed us to conduct our operations far more efficiently.“
