Bevrijdingsfestival Utrecht is the provincial celebration of Liberation Day in the Utrecht province. The event was founded in 1993. It is an accessible, free-of-charge, contemporary event. The festival has a broad set-up and offers, besides music, a variety of (interactive) program components around the themes of 5 May. The theme for this years Liberation Day was “Choosing in freedom”.
This was the first time Backbone International assisted with the production of this event. We took care of the technical production and overlay management for our client Productieteam.
Our relatively small team buildup four different areas with something for everyone. On the mainstage renown artists were booked, while on the SENA Performers Stage rising talents performed. On the Freedom Stage there was room for cultural performances, and on the Talent Stage local talents could show their skills. Nice detail on the Freedom Stage was the fire truck with ladder that supported the tent.
Besides the many festivities, there was also room made for serious subjects. On the Freedom Square non-profit civil society organizations got the possibility to present themselves to the visitors. To complete this event, many food trucks were present for which practical arrangements had to be made. Last, a Children’s Festival was setup for the smallest visitors.
