The Bayside Festival will run throughout the period of the Olympic Games and will provide visitors to the area with a complimentary place to visit. Between 10,000 and 15,000 people are expected to visit the site each day.
Justin Litten, production manager, SXS Events, commented: “The site is a particularly challenging one as we are going to experience some extremely high Atlantic winds, as well as salt spray at the site location for a two-week duration. This is to be expected given the nature of the sport being shown here.”
The festival will take place over 13,300 square metres of waterfront, which will be open to high winds and the elements. As a result, SXS has taken steps to have all equipment and structures tested by CJN Consulting.
