Festival Security?
« on: January 27, 2011, 10:07:12 AM »

Our little company has been working a two day hippie festival for the past 3 years. Last year we found out that local security company was calling it quits and would no longer be doing crowd control.

So what do most of you guys do for crowd control security. This event is a BYOB camping event , gets a little rough at times.

I have contacted other local security companys in our area and they will not do crowd control.

This event is in Topeka, KS

Sounds like there was a problem and everyone's trying to keep their hands clean this year.

Close. Its a small festival that came about due to Wakarusa moving to arkansas. Its called Truckhenge. Nothing to big but with out proper security I told them I cant do the shows. So I thought I would help them find some real crowd control companies and not the good ol local boys.

This sounds like more of a venue/promoter thing honestly. If it has become your problem I would be charging the difference that hiring security is gonna cost.

Thats kinda my point. I told them if they cant provide proper security, I cant do the event. So being the nice guy I am, I thought I would lead them in the right direction.

Cool, was just checking there. Didn't want to see somebody get stuck with the expense and hassle when it is clearly not part of their job.

not sure the nature of your event, but the local Hells Angels have been hired to provide security for certain types of events around here, on occasion.
