Hi there, I'm just interested to hear if anyone has any experience of selling food or drinks at UK music festivals particularly bigger ones such as Download Festival and Leeds (Carling Weekend). I'm interested in rough guidelines of costs for setting up and running a stall as well as a rough idea of what you were selling and how successful it was. I have an idea that proved to be very successful at a place I once worked. I took this idea and did a small trial of it at Download festival last year by wandering around 2 of the 30 campsites selling it (I sold out very quickly!). This year I'd like to attend some festivals as a proper trader and see how things work out. I was thinking about attending a smaller festival first as the costs would be less and it would allow me to get a better idea of how my sales might go at larger festivals. I'm currently speaking to a number of festival organisers about doing so and my first estimate for one of these festivals is that it would cost me around £350 (before stock and transport) for the stall and one extra staff member to help run things along. There would also be around £200 in one off costs that would last over several festivals such as insurance. At this rate I'd need to sell quite a lot to be able to begin making a profit so I'm not sure whether it might be better to go directly for larger festivals because of the increased sales volume that I'd be likely to achieve. If anyone has any information or would like to share their experiences it would be much appreciated! For the record I have begun contacting the organisers of some larger festivals in order to gather information on pricing of stalls, it would be very helpful to hear from others' experiences though!
