Dec 2019 | San Bernadino, CA | Insomniac
At the end of 2019, Insomniac Events organized Audiotistic and Countdown NYE at the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino. Audiotistic is a festival with cutting-edge sounds and unforgettable performances from some top artists. The festival it’s known for its diversity in music genres, combining the worlds of hip-hop, dubstep, and dance music with advanced production for an audiovisual experience unlike any other. Countdown NYE is the largest New Year’s Eve party on the West Coast. This edition had an all-new alien theme, four stages, and various hidden surprises.
Backbone managed all festival operations on the exterior of the venue footprint and executed the installation of all infrastructure. Besides, Backbone assets are required to facilitate hotel and parking shuttle programs, box office, lost and found, and will call services. An excellent highlight of this project was that we were also in full charge of the ride-share pickup and drop-off.
Our team facilitated the attendees’ safe and efficient pedestrian migration to and from the event’s main entrance. It engaged with local law enforcement, traffic engineers, and parking staff to execute traffic and parking plans. This project’s biggest challenge was switching from Audiotistic to Countdown NYE. Because Countdown attracted more visitors and had a more important site, our Backbone team had many changes outside the venue in less than 62 hours.
