THE BIG FEASTIVAL
ROLE: Event Manager
YEAR: 2015 & 2016
LOCATION: Oxfordshire, UK
The Big Feastival has become one of the UK's most popular family festivals for food and music lovers, held each summer on the farm of legendary Blur bassist Alex James.
Combining family fun, food and music, the weekend includes an incredible spread of culinary delights, including sessions from Michelin star chefs, as well as street food caterers covering a huge variety of cuisines.
Beyond the food, the music isn't half bad either. Its recent lineups have included Lewis Capaldi, Rudimental and Elbow in among all the extra fun, from tree climbing and arts and craft workshops, to the funfair and the chance for the children to meet their TV heroes.
After IMG acquired the event in 2014, I led the operations and production of the event in 2015 & 2016 contracting vendors for all elements, hiring the on-site operations team, producing planning and show flow documentation & site plans, and liaising with local government and community organizations for licenses and permitting.
