Event crewing company Gallowglass has been tasked with turning Cardiff’s Principality Stadium into a family entertainment arena – and back again – for a programme of Spring and Summer events that culminates in July with the British FIM Speedway Grand Prix.
In the coming months, Gallowglass crews will be putting-in an anticipated 180 hours of logistical support to turn the Stadium around in preparation for a series of high-profile live music and sports events.
At the end of March, the Stadium hosted blockbuster boxing showdown between unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker. During the coming months, music royalty will draw sell-out crowds at the Stadium, with Jay Z and Beyoncé in concert in May, followed by Ed Sheeran and the Rolling Stones in June. In May the venue will welcome Monster Jam – the adrenaline-fueled motorsport event featuring 12ft tall trucks with 66-inch tall tyres that perform wheelies, ‘donuts’ and big air stunts in front of audiences.
