DJ & Band Hire


The night time is ascendant at the moment and the days are short.  We have still been out and about. We did a lovely party down in Somerset for a 40th Birthday / Halloween celebration.  The band ‘The Mad Cows’, a Glastonbury Festival favourite, wowed the crowd with their great feel good music. The interaction with the crowd , which included an improvised start to the set with a song using a throwaway comment from one of the audience, was a joy to hear. Well worth seeing or booking for a gig.

Bonfire night saw us in the Cotswolds in the scenic environs of Stow On The Wold. We provided a yurt , a disco, laser lighting and glamping for a group of 12-13 year olds celebrating a birthday.

Over The Moon Events provided tents, lighting, decor, DJ’s and sound systems for the Summer Ball at the Oxford Union. It was a prestigious event to be involved in as the Union has been the place where weekly debates are held and many famous UK and foreign politicians have learnt the art of debate.

The events theme was the Garden of Eden and there was a choice of modern and old, black and white, tribal and urban tents with the courtyard filled with tipi’s, a yurt and a lovely black Intent.

 

The Yurt and Tipi's made a nice chill out space overlooked by the Oxford Union building.

It was the first booking we had for the black Intent and wasn’t she a beauty. This is a tent that cries out for a dancefloor, club type event inside.

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has publicly supported Glade Festival in an open letter today. By supporting his festival’s successful export, the letter also gives the community of smaller UK festivals a boost.

Glastonbury is without doubt the undisputed star of the British festival landscape, and the creative inspiration for a plethora of other successful festival organisers. It is also the mothership that has provided hundreds of thousands of people with their first festival experience.

Michael Eavis’ letter read: “About ten years ago I persuaded Luke Piper, Glade Festival Director, to run a new area at Worthy Farm called ‘The Glade’. ‘Why the glade’ Luke said – ‘sounds like a perfume’ – ‘an opening in the woods’ I said—‘a perfect venue’. And so it was. So successful was The Glade, he asked to borrow the concept for a site in Newbury which worked too.

“Now, after a good few years the site has moved from Newbury to Winchester, a beautiful farm in a natural amphitheatre with lots more room – better access, and a lot less people living close by.

“The Glade Festival has lots of Glastonbury connections with thrills and feelings not dissimilar to our own, including programming and atmosphere that has form and reputation.

“If you couldn’t get a ticket for our show here at Glastonbury, thank you very much for trying, but would you mind me suggesting that you give Glade Festival a try? I don’t think you’ll regret it!”

OverTheMoonTents will be at both Glastonbury and Glade Festivals this coming summer. We will be providing an Orange 15x13m Intent for the Rabbit Hole area at both festivals. We are stoked up to be at both these great music festivals. Our DJ’s and lighting engineer will also be playing at both events. Come and say hello if you are there.

Our Orange Intent is  excited to be able to welcome party people into her curvy embrace at Glastonbury and Glade this summer.
