Wilkestock Festival main stage Razorlight 2017

Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd September 2017

Taking place on a humble farm near Stevenage, Wilkestock is an annual charity music festival staged by the Wilkes family. Raising money for great causes such as Bloodwise and Keswick Mountain Rescue, Wilkestock is now in its 10th year and Vortex are proud to have been on board for 5 years.


Taking place across 5 stages, Wilkestock is home to live music, DJs and silent discos – plus kids areas, cinema zones and campsites. It was our mission to kit out the 5 stages of live music and DJs: the Main Stage, Bella Stage, Bangorang Stage, Rock Up and Rinse Stage and the Brambles Stage, plus provide tech for the cinema tent.


As well as providing all on site production equipment, rigging and de-rigging, we also supplied 10 professional engineers to run all audio, lighting and LED. We also had company director Iain Rendle onsite to oversee the team, and respond to any issues throughout the event.
