Role Backbone:

Backbone International is involved in the production of Mysteryland for many years now, working closely with their production team. For this year’s edition we took care of, among other things, the technical design and technical production of the Main stage, Q-dance stage, Big Top tent, Holland Casino Zipline and several chill-out areas. We were also in charge of the execution of the campsite production and last but not least, our Risk & Crowd Services Manager supported our clients’ Crowd Service Manager on ensuring the safety of all visitors during the entire festival.

The load in started on the 9th of August in the rain, just like the years before. However, along the production period the temperatures were rising till quite extreme for this time of the year. Our team nevertheless managed to keep their heads cool and finish the load out within a couple of days.
