Amazing Tents heads to the 2015 UK Festival Awards

It’s that time of year again – the UK Festival Awards, and Amazing Tents is super excited to be heading to the ceremony in London on 26th November. There isn’t a ‘best stage cover’ or ‘best event tent’ prize at the UK Festival Awards 2015 (although we’re quietly confident of success if there was) – so why are we going?

The answer is simple – our world-renowned SaddleSpan tents have been spotted at pretty much all of the UK’s major festivals and music events, including many of those featured in this year’s shortlist.

For example, our SaddleSpan S5000 Concert tent, the ideal stage cover due to its precision-designed shape and structure, was a central feature at Leopallooza in Cornwall, which scooped the Grass Roots Festival prize in 2014’s awards. Amazing Tents also popped up tents at Latitude, which had the best line-up in 2013 and is up for Best Medium Sized Festival in 2015.

We’re deeply and passionately involved in the UK festival scene, and the 12th annual UK Festival Awards are a great way to celebrate the achievements of all involved in putting together our country’s very best events.

Congrats to Creamfields and Download for a huge 9 nominations between them

Some festivals are heavily featured in the shortlists every year, and two that consistently perform well are Download and Creamfields. While radically different, both are nominated for Best Major Festival, Best Toilets and Best Hospitality in this year’s award, with an impressive 9 nominations between them.

Rock festival Download, which Amazing Tents has worked closely with in the past, has a massive nominations in total, after enjoying success back in 2013 when it was named Best Major Festival. Forward-thinking Download is also up for Best Use of New Technology, due to its use of RFID Cashless Dog Tags.

Our work with previous winners Creamfields

Meanwhile, dance festival Creamfields has its category – Best Dance Festival – pretty much cornered, winning this prestigious award in both 2013 and 2014. The Cheshire event is nominated in this category yet again, along with nominations in 3 other categories including Best Major Festival and Best Toilets.

The Amazing Tents team is quite familiar with this long-running and hugely popular festival, after transforming the hospitality field in August 2014 with our S5000 TriSpan, S5000 Enclosed and S5000 Concert tents to the delight of VIP guests. That’s why we’re chuffed to hear that Creamfields is shortlisted for a brand new award – Best Hospitality, sponsored by Snoozebox. After having worked wonders in the hospitality area of this particular festival before, we can confidently state that Creamfields excels in this area and has a very good chance of scooping the prize.

Best of luck to all of the fabulous UK festivals shortlisted for this year’s event. We’re sure to see lots of familiar faces at the official ceremony at London’s Roundhouse on November 26th, and we absolutely can’t wait to celebrate the continuing success of the incredible UK festival scene with you all!
