A week in advance, the trucks carrying bits and pieces of the stages and other festival equipment arrive in Meadows Park near midnight, forcing the GLP to close off the roads leading onto Livingston Street. But wait, you might ask, the crew entrance is just off the motorway. Well unfortunately, the snooty residents of Meadow Hills filed a complaint against the organiser about 'potential distruption' because of the trucks a few nights before they were legally obliged to leave their homes.
This resulted in a logistical nightmare to get the 16-wheeler trucks into the park. After much negotiation over the course of three hours, slightly behind schedule, the trucks arrived in the park via an agreed route. And from then on, they got to work.
(sorry about the distruption from earlier. I think we're finally sorted now)
