Piggotts, the marquee specialists were selected by Innovision Events to supply a temporary marquee structure covering approximately 150sq meters at the base of the London Eye for the Red Bull Revolutions in Sound music academy event.
The event brought together 30 of the UK’s most prolific club nights such as, Rinse, Boiler Room, and Fabric. DJ’s from each of the clubs were designated a pod each, acting as there DJ booth to play and mix music from.
The event was broadcasted live, simultaneously across 30 club stages making this one of most talked about music events this year, with performances that stretched across genres, eras and postcodes. Highlights came from Mark Ronson playing a vinyl-only DJ set. Elsewhere, Richie Hawtin returned to his roots in the Lost capsule and Rudimental let rip above the city that inspired their astonishing rise.
At the foot of the London Eye, over 2,500 music lovers shook the pavement in silence at a Silent Disco featuring the likes of Ashley Beedle and Academy graduate Jackmaster. Off-site, an audience of more than a million viewers tuned-in from around the world to catch the action online via YouTube and Channel4.com.
Having supplied and installed a number of marquees around the Olympic Park for the London 2012 Games last year, the Piggotts team have extensive experience of managing temporary structures in central London, as well as remote locations across the UK; having installed marquees for the Counties shows and at V Festival earlier this year.
Lee Harvey, Managing Director of Piggotts said, “Red Bull is a very dynamic brand and we have worked alongside Innovision on a number of occasions. Our team play a small but very key part in these grand events, so it’s important for the organisers to know that they have a reputable company that will deliver for them.”
