MusikFest was first started in 1984 by ArtsQuest, a community-based nonprofit organization. Over the past three decades, the event has evolved into one of the largest and most diverse music festivals in the nation, with 500-plus shows on 14 stages over 10 days. Each year more than 900,000 people make their way to the Lehigh Valley and the festival, with their sights set on experiencing all the music, food and fun of this musical extravaganza.
Seating Solutions was there once again this year to provide seating for the fans that come to watch performances on the main stage. To ensure everyone had a great view of the stage we provided them with two elevated Ultimate flip up style seating systems. Each system came with three aisles for egress, with mid aisle handrails in the center aisle. Both of our systems were safety code compliant with a fully no-climb picket rail. Fans were also able to enjoy the music on our rear party decks. These decks were fully picket railed for safety and were accessed through the aisles in the grandstands.
For the floor seating ArtsQuest used our FloorTrack flip up seating system (the same flip up seat as in the tiered system). Using our Floortrack seating was the best option for ArtsQuest both safety and revenue wise. MusikFest attracts more and more fans each year and the Floortrack system allows for them to get 20% more seats in the same overall area (over regular folding chairs) with code compliance and safety. Seat and aisle numbering were provided by Seating Solutions along with section signage which provides the guests with easy viewing of their section and aids in traffic flow.
Seating Solutions is proud to be a part of one of the largest music festivals in the country and we look forward to continuing to provide seating for and be a part of their future festivals!
