Mojo Barriers has secured a new three-year contract to supply its aluminium stage barriers to Roskilde Festival.
The company, which has offices in the Netherlands, the UK, the US and Australia, has a 15-year relationship with the Danish festival, which will this year take place between 25 June and 2 July.
Mojo Barriers will, as in previous years, supply a system which splits the front-of-stage area into four pens that are emptied between the bands, allowing Roskilde staff to control the number of people in those areas and divide the audience to prevent large crowd surges.
Mojo will also supply line-up gates to control the flow rate into the pens and give security staff an effective monitoring system.
“There is a great health and safety culture at Roskilde, and we’ve worked closely with organisers to develop a barrier configuration which provides optimum safety to festivalgoers,” says Mojo Barriers’ Alex Borger. “This three-year contact is [a] testament to Roskilde’s commitment to crowd management and we’re looking forward to expanding on our long-term relationship with this brilliant event.”
Roskilde Festival’s 2016 line-up features Red Hot Chili Peppers, New Order, Foals, PJ Harvey, Bring Me the Horizon, LCD Soundsystem, Wiz Khalifa and Tame Impala.
