Live has renewed its contract to provide temporary roadways and security fencing to Glastonbury until 2020 when the festival will celebrate its 50th year.

The contract renewal took place at Worthy Farm where Live’s relationship began in the early 1970s. Michael Eavis was joined by the Live team and industry veteran John Robinson, who together with his son Dale, were involved in designing the Super Fortress fence to counteract Glastonbury security breaches in the late 90s.

The structure has become as iconic as the festival’s pyramid stage. At four metres high and eight kilometres long, the fence is an essential part of the festival’s operating license and ensures the safety and security of the attending public.

Live also install 25 kilometres of temporary roadway (more than 10,000 panels) and spend 81 days on site with 34 staff at peak times.
