Mojo Barriers’ new Australian office is supplying stage barriers and crowd safety services across three of the country’s biggest summer music festivals in 2013.
The company has 2.5km of barriers on the road with the Future Music Festival, which kicked off in Brisbane on 2 March, with acts including The Prodigy and The Stone Roses, and tours nationally.
Mojo put 4.5km of barriers in for the Soundwave tour, across five sites, in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, and 3km for last month’s Big Day Out, which hit Sydney, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.
“This is a fantastic start for us,” Nicola Carroll, Mojo Barriers’ Australia director, said. “[We] have worked with these festivals in the past, but with our new premises and staffing structure we’ve been able to increase our stock provision and further integrate our specialist safety and security components into festival designs. Mojo Barriers line-up gates, mega-exits and high fencing are now key elements of crowd management in high density areas.”
