IBA UK is delighted to be providing security services for the Minety Music Festival.

The three-day not-for-profit event is organised entirely by volunteers. This year, the funds raised will support Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Combat Stress and Naomi House & Jacksplace Hospice. Funds will also secure future charity fundraising events.

The event will take place in the village of Minety, nestling in the Cotswolds between Swindon and Malmesbury from Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July.

IBA UK’s Involvement

IBA provided services for the inaugural 2017 Minety Festival and we’re delighted to be returning this year. It’s great to be part of this local event and the fantastic causes that it supports. Our team will be contributing to the event by providing free Paediatric First-Aid training for event staff.

2018 – What’s on offer at Minety Festival

Last year’s event was a roaring success, so much so that it was shortlisted in the Best New Festival category of the UK Festival Awards.

In 2018, the festival offers:

  • over 40 bands on two stages
  • a huge range of music styles
  • plenty of eating options
  • a bar, gin & prosecco bar and cocktail ba
  • all-free Kidzone, including slacklining, inflatable slide and assault course, bouncy castles, circus skills workshops and more
  • free camping and camper-van pitches

All this, and Chesney Hawkes too!

CENS Digital Noise Suppressors and Minety Music Festival

From a professional point of view, music festivals are a challenge for security teams. Because they can find themselves close to PA systems for extended periods of team, they need effective ear protection to reduce the risk of hearing loss. On the other hand, they need to be able to communicate with each other. For IBA UK, there’s only solution: CENS Digital Noise Suppressors boost ambient noises such as conversations whilst suppressing damaging noise. We’ll be making use of ours at the event.

Have a Great Time…and Support Worthwhile Causes

The 2018 Minety Music Festival promises to be a fantastic long weekend experience for all the family.  We hope to see you there — keep your fingers crossed for the weather!

You can find out more about the Minety Festival (and book tickets) at their website.
