Lollapalooza gets a new layout with Mojo Barriers

Lollapalooza 2013Mojo Barriers’ US office designed and installed a brand new barricade layout at this year’s Lollapalooza Festival, ensuring the highest levels of safety for audiences, crew and artists, 1-4 August 2013. 

Chicago’s Grant Park became home to the festival once again with performances from The Cure, Mumford & Sons, The Killers and Nine Inch Nails keeping the 90,000 capacity crowds entertained.

The Mojo team worked with festival producers C3 and NPB Security to assess the site layout and predicted crowd movements, designing new configurations across the two main stages.

Mojo Barriers’ US President, J.B. Dolphin, comments: “We used 660m of our patented aluminium barricade, implementing a new layout which consisted of a thrust leading to an off-center front of house.

“This not only improved the safety – giving additional space for security and crew – but also opened up the sightlines, ensuring the best possible views for the audience, which was one of our main aims when planning this year’s event.”

Mojo Barriers has supplied Lollapalooza for the past three years, and works with C3 to deliver other flagship US festivals including Austin City Limits.
