Case Study | Brighton Pride 2017

Building an event site for 50,000 people on a public park in just 5 days, and on an extremely tight budget, brings many challenges.

Balancing the park closure timings and public safety with our suppliers' deadlines, mean the days are packed and go in an instant.

Wilde Ones employ a core team of experienced staff to manage each aspect of the event production, and work with trusted suppliers who know with the job in hand.

Performing at their first Brighton Pride in 2017, Pet Shop Boys brought their touring production to full effect with a spell-binding laser finale to the biggest Pride festival to date.

Giving their touring production team the tools to succeed and the right platform is just one part of Wilde Ones' job at Preston Park.

As the event has grown, so too have the production requirements, and our team manages each new element in order that the event can continue to grow.

One of Brighton Pride's major stages is the Dance Tent which has hosted DJs from Fatboy Slim to DJ Fresh to David Morales.

Tents present different propositions to the lighting designer and the additional attention to detail expected create some head-scratching moments in planning meetings.

Supporting our specialists on site is a major motivator and making sure that each team has what it needs is crucial for the show.

Planning meetings are long, arduous affairs but working with specialists who understand the event - and our attention to detail - help reduce the stress on site.

The Powerline have added stability to a crucial part of the production operation since 2015. The team is responsive and knowledgeable and their equipment is rugged - with extras always on the wagon.

Picking the right suppliers and trusting them with the plan is crucial to our site management culture.

Since 2012 Wilde Ones have managed all production of Brighton Pride on Preston Park.

The last five years have seen many changes, and as the event grows so do the production values at the UK's biggest and most renowned Pride event.

Wilde Ones feel a major connection with such a worthwhile event and are proud to be involved in the festival's development.
