How to put on a festival or outdoor event

outdoor event

Immense thought into planning a flawless event or festival.

Outdoor event planning usually involves making arrangements for refreshments, entertainment, and sanitation among other things.

In this article, we’ll examine how choosing the right festival bins can enhance the experience at your festival or outdoor event. 

Using storage containers for refreshments

If you were to Google ‘how to put on a festival’, hundreds of results would appear, advising you about the kind of food you should have.

However, these results often fail to tell organisers how to store, transport and distribute food to festivalgoers.

This is a key aspect of outdoor event planning that can be addressed with storage containers.

Regardless of the size of the event, there’ll probably be a need to transport and store large amounts of food and drinks.

A plastic or steel drum with a food grade quality certification is the ideal choice for bulk storage.

This certification guarantees that the container can safely carry food without contaminating it. For a layer of added protection, you can pair the container with a drum liner bearing the same certification.

Additionally, if you’re interested in offering self-service to attendees throughout the event, these bins for events offer an easy solution.

Opening the container and filling it with ice and bottled drinks is a simple yet effective distribution method.

Though not a typical festival bin, an IBC is a useful tool for beverage distribution.

Much like storage drums, IBCs are large and great for transporting items in bulk.

For the purpose of outdoor event planning, they act as the perfect drink dispenser once a spout has been attached at the base of the container.

Using storage containers for waste management

More important than how to put on a festival is how to clean up after one.

Festival bins are crucial because nobody wants to deal with a dirty venue.

For festivalgoers, having to wade through rubbish or encounter pests will taint their overall experience of the event. For organisers, cleaning up will prove a nightmare.

Over time, a lack of proper waste management will degrade the festival ground or venue, too.

Steel and plastic drums may not come to mind when researching bins for events.

Yet they’re useful waste disposal tools. Simply inserting rubbish bags and placing bins in centralised locations across the grounds will provide guests ample opportunities to throw away their rubbish.

At the end of the event, the bags can be removed and disposed of, leaving the bins in the same condition and reusable for your next event.

If you’re looking to make your event more environment-friendly, you can designate different bins for different types of waste, such as paper, plastic and food waste.

Aside from their durability, steel and plastic drums offer a variety of sizes.

This allows organisers to invest in festival bins proportional to the size of their event. One of the worst mistakes to make is not having enough rubbish bins to keep your festival clean.
