The Brief – To organise all foreshore events for 2021 Schoolies Festival.
The Event – Schoolies Festival is the final celebration for school leavers (under 18) across Australia, each night has a new theme, games and live DJ.
Initially for 500 school leavers over five nights. However, there was increased demand as the festival drew closer. Due to this demand, Whitsunday Police had safety concerns and asked the festival be expanded to seven nights so the school leavers had somewhere safe to continue their celebrations.
Seven nights in total and over 1200 participants.
Airlie Events was responsible for sourcing entertainment, council permits & licensing, insurance, WH&S management, securing the festival areas with perimeter fencing and security, stage management including lighting and sound, photography, personnel and volunteers.
