Centennial, CO – KAABOO is “everything a typical music festival is not.” In its third year, KAABOO attracted 10s of thousands fun-loving gourmands and their families over the three-day festival—with art, comedy, cuisine, craft beverages, massages, creature comforts, and yes, even music. While this festival for all the senses may be a whole new concept, the infrastructure and logistics to set up is the difference between a successful festival and not. Johnson Storage & Moving’s San Diego office has supported KAABOO by storing and deploying essentials such as boardwalks every year.
The logistics for a multi-day festival at a racetrack—or really any space—requires careful orchestration and pitch perfect timing. From staging to electrical to cabanas and art tents, there’s a sequence for the set-up that can make or break a festival. Johnson is no stranger to working with precision timing. Working with festival operations, Johnson provides safe storage, timely drop-off and pick-up of miles of boardwalk that protects the Del Mar Racetrack grounds.
“Whenever people hear ‘storage and moving,’ they never quite think beyond residential and local moves,” says Don Hindman, EVP of Johnson. “While every Johnson Storage & Moving facility nationwide does indeed help folks move, we also have a number of other business offerings that include everything from corporate relocations—including hospitals—and hospitality solutions for major hotel chains. Our San Diego office does a lot of work with the military, moving armed forces and their families across country or even overseas. And it has one of our largest storage warehouses where we have everything from crate and store solutions for individuals and businesses, but also bigger storage projects for events like KAABOO.”
KAABOO is already selling Early Bird tickets for next year’s festival in September at www.kaaboodelmar.com.
