Vanguardia Make it Happen

28th September 2009

Over the past few months Vanguardia has been busy ensuring numerous music events can go ahead in the UK. Giving expert advice based on years of experience, we are able to reassure local authorities that music events can occur whilst minimising disturbance and achieving licence conditions.

One of the most exciting was the Muse homecoming gig in Teignmouth on the 4th and 5th September 2009. A village green in Devon is an unlikely setting for one of the UK’s biggest bands but thanks to our Acoustic Consultant Warren King, Muse came home for two very special evenings. View NME article.

The Reading Festival was also permitted to operate at higher offsite limits than previous years due to the advice offered by our Director, Jim Griffiths.

Melvin Benn from Festival Republic states “To be fair, the sound has been massively better. Last year we were having to run so low that it wasn't possible, that hasn't been the case this year. Generally, we've been running between 101 and 103 decibels, sometimes 107, amazing," he explained.

Other events that were granted a premises licence that required significant acoustic input from Vanguardia include, Oasis at Heaton Park, Take That at Ricoh Arena, and Creamfields at Halton near Liverpool.
