The most obvious proof of doing a job well is being invited back to do it again. Held over the August Bank Holiday weekend, AP has been present at Leeds Festival since it started in 1999.
Having been there at the very start, AP has grown with Leeds and has developed a solid partnership with organiser Festival Republic and has an understanding of its philosophy as well as the requirements of the audience.
This success can be traced back to cold days spent at Brixton Academy doing pit training with its staff, learning how to lift people out of a crowd, dealing with crowd surfers and the management of pit areas, pass checking and working with other agencies on the festival site.
This, coupled with extensive pre-planning, good management of the rest of the site and a clear focus on the needs of the crowd, makes for a safe and successful event.
