White Light Sponsors UK Festival Awards

November 2015

As the complete production solution specialist with a constantly growing presence in the fields of outdoor festivals and concert touring, White Light once again are to sponsor this year’s award for Best Use of New Technology award.

With categories including Best Major Festival, Anthem of the Summer and Best Line-Up, the recipients of the UK Festival Awards are decided through fan-voting and expert judging panels. The awards were first launched in 2004 and are now a key feature in the industry’s calendar. This year’s ceremony will take place on 26 November at the Roundhouse, London.

Prior to the actual awards ceremony there will be a conference day featuring a series of talks and events led by key individuals from the festival industry. Richard Wilson, Director at WL, comments: “The Festival Awards are always a really unique, innovative occasion. Not only do the actual awards highlight the most influential figures within the industry but the conference day is a fantastic opportunity to create new working relationships as well as catch up with old friends.”

WL returns to this year’s UK Festival Awards having worked on more concerts and festivals in the past twelve months than ever before. This includes the 50 Cent one-off Concert at London’s O2 Arena, Frankie Valli and Gladys Knight’s UK tours, Goldie’s Timeless concert at the Royal Festival Hall along with supporting artists at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Richard adds: “This year has seen huge expansion at WL. We now have a fully dedicated audio department with an expert team and a commitment to investing in the very latest audio technology. As we increase our staff force and resources we are able to bring even more to concerts and festivals. Only last week we worked on a concert for Death Cab for Cutie and are always on the lookout for opportunities in which we can offer our expert production support.” 

Tom Lawson, Events Co-ordinator at the Festival Awards, comments: “We are delighted that WL is once again supporting the UK Festival Awards. The generosity shown by the company, along with the other sponsors, makes the awards a possibility and we are really looking forward to what will no doubt be an unforgettable evening.”
