Live to service Glastonbury into its 50th anniversary
Live Trakway and Barriers has renewed its contract to provide temporary roadways and security fencing until 2020 when the festival will celebrate its 50th year.
The contract renewal took place at Worthy Farm where Live’s relationship began in the early 1970s. Michael Eavis was joined by the Live team and industry veteran John Robinson, who together with his son Dale, were involved in designing the Super Fortress fence to counteract Glastonbury security breaches in the late 90s.
The structure has become as iconic as the festival’s pyramid stage. At an imposing 4m high and 8km long, the fence is an essential part of the Glastonbury Festival operating license and ensures the safety and security of the attending public.
