Future Music Festival 2014 – AUS – Site Management
Future Music Melbourne, Future Music Adelaide & Future Music Brisbane
Parachute International’s involvement in the Future Music Festival Site Management was hugely expanded upon the past 4 years of involvement.
This year, Parachute expanded to South Australia to run the Site Logistics in Adelaide at the Adelaide Showground, including a full site and bar crew.
Parachute’s Goose McGrath and the fulltime crew were onsite at Flemington Racecourse and across 8 days, built and ran the Melbourne editions of Soundwave Festival, Good Life Festival and Future Music Festival. The logistical challenges in Melbourne were ever present, having to build and break the centre of the site to return almost half the site to the venue to allow for a number of race days. This essentially meant a large number of overnight bump ins and overnight bump outs to cater for the ongoing use of the racecourse, as well as staggered crews and various levels of high level management of contractors and stakeholders.
As well as Site Managing Adelaide, Parachute’s Geordie Barker stepped into the Site Management role in Brisbane last minute, running Good Life Underage Festival and Future Music Festival at the Brisbane Showgrounds before following onto the Adelaide leg of this National Tour.
