Tentickle Tents “Go Big” at AVA 2016 in Belfast

Part Conference, part nightclub, all a hell of a lot of fun!

The Audiovisual Arts Festival and Conference is celebration of electronic music and digital visual arts and was this year hosted on the 4th of June 2016 at T13 Belfast. This annual event is fast becoming a major music attraction for the city and played host to a number of emerging and established artists, DJ’s, producers, promoters, agents, record labels, designers, visual artists and of course some very special guests, These included, but were by no means limited to:

  • DJ Mag
  • Juan Atkins
  • Mano Le Tough
  • Gerd Janson
  • Psycatron Hammer

Maverick Marquees had the Party (and Conference) Covered!

The Bedouin style stretch tents created by Tentickle UK and supplied by Maverick Marquees are now a regular sight at most outdoor music festivals in Northern Ireland, and at this year’s AVA Festival it came as no surprise that we once again had such a major event covered! In fact, not one but two of our exceptionally versatile tents were requested by the event organisers and we were only to happy to oblige. These large UV Protected, Fire Retardant, Waterproof Tents offered more than just protection from the weather, they literally helped showcase the event for both the Boiler Room and the Becks BeKreative Area:

Why We Were Chosen!

The Boiler Room Stage wanted to use Belfast’s iconic shipyard cranes, Samson and Goliath, as a dramatic backdrop to the stage, and the event organisers needed a stretch tent to help create this effect. Thanks to the stylish lines and legendary good looks of our Tentickle Tents we were an obvious choice and the AVA organisers approached our tent rental partners, Maverick Marquees, to help them create the perfect Boiler Room Event:

There was certainly no shortage of energy!
