A range of Mojo Barriers aluminium crowd safety barriers are now based in Budapest, with the announcement of a new Mojo distributor offering barrier rental for festival organisers and tours coming to Eastern Europe.

A stock of Mojo Barriers will be permanently located in Budapest for rental and it has already been hired out to create the front of stage barrier for the Gorillaz concert in Budapest at the Papp Laszlo Arena.

Stanley Jilsen, project and touring manager at Mojo, commented: “With the expanding live events market in Hungary and Eastern Europe, Mojo Barriers is proud to support organisers with local resource to help keep their events safe. Having worked with Sziget Festival for several years we are delighted to work with the innovators in this region pushing for higher standards.”

The new Hungarian distributorship is the company’s 12th along with the international offices in The Netherlands, UK, USA and Australia.

Dániel Benis, production director at Sziget, added: “We wanted to deliver our events to the highest of international production standards, particularly when it came to the safety of our audience, artists and crew. Our experience with Mojo Barriers has been very positive so we are delighted to be able to offer their products to other events in the region.”
