Festivals & outdoor

From music festivals attended by thousands to intimate outdoor experiences, we power your events, large or small

The logistics of staging an outdoor festival or event can be overwhelming. Let Gofer take care of your power generation and distribution requirements so you can concentrate on the bigger picture.

We help you plan what you need, deliver and install, and even provide event support if that’s important to you.

With more than 30 years’ experience, we understand the challenges festival and outdoor events organisers face, so we are always keen to make life as easy for you as possible.

Our equipment is reliable, quiet, and energy-efficient. We work to reduce your event carbon footprint as much as possible. Our hybrid generators, for example, use less energy than standard fuel systems.

We’ve been working with Gofer on numerous projects for over 10 years and can say that Nic and his team have consistently provided an outstanding service both in the planning and delivery of power at our events. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment, and Gofer have been very proactive and helpful in offering new technologies and initiatives to incorporate cleaner energy and reduce carbon emissions.

Event sector campaign

Red Alert! Lighting up UK landmarks to raise awareness


Gofer helped light up landmarks like the Orwell Bridge in red to support the under-pressure events industry. We provided the power as part of a high-profile national campaign drawing attention to the business effect of COVID-19.

Outdoor school support

Free power for primary school's temporary outdoor space


We were pleased to provide free power distribution and cabling for Sidegate Primary School, Ipswich to power its temporary outdoor learning space, necessary as part of social distancing rules.

Here in an emergency

Gofer comes to the rescue as site needs emergency power


We often get SOS calls when a site’s power has failed. That’s just what happened recently when a site needed an emergency generator, which we were able to deliver fast to get them up and running again.
