Feelgood Friday!

Posted on 19 Feb 2021

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

In the meantime, let’s have some feelgood Friday vibes, and a pleasant weekend. read more...

Summer 2021 is coming! Are you ready?

If you have festival withdrawals like the rest of us, something you can do to prepare for this year is to check that the information you have listed on your DCSS PAAM profile is still relevant to you.

Throwback Thursday to Reading, thank you staff and upcoming work!

Posted on 27 Aug 2020

For those of you who are DC veterans you will know Dick and Janet, two of DC Site Services’ Directors who were here from the very beginning and established the Company in 1993.

This festival season will mark the first time in FOURTY SEVEN YEARS that they hav read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Leeds Festival!

Posted on 20 Aug 2020

This is another one that stings a little bit. Leeds and Reading festival have been a staple of DC’s event calendar for many years. These sister festivals are usually the peak of the festival season, our fullest weekend over the August bank holiday. This is usually when our managers are at their busiest, the office staff at their most engaged with phones permanently attached to their ears…so it feels odd to be in a strange limbo. We’ll settle for reminiscing over lovely sunrises, a sea of tents read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Ed Sheeran!

Posted on 06 Aug 2020

Who was there with us last year at Ed Sheeran? From start to finish, DC Site Services was there to provide a full waste management service for an amazing gig which was sandwiched in between a series of other big festivals!   We remember the hill that felt like a mountain that was thoroughly picked. Muddy boots. A LOT of hay and bins and one big stage. A few of our crew were even lucky enough to get a wave from Mr. Sheeran himself during the build. Thank you to everyone who’ve emailed in to sha read more...

Throwback Thursday – to the Royal Welsh Show!

Posted on 23 Jul 2020

Firstly, thank you to everyone who has been in touch with the office to share your memories from last years festivals. It’s put a nostalgic smile on our faces and a spring in our step as we plan for the future. This time, we’re throwing it back to the Royal Welsh Show, the “pinnacle event in the British Agricultural calendar.” DC has provided cleaning and waste management services to RWS for a number of years, and while you may not see your favourite rock band while off-shift, there is plenty e read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Glastonbury!

Posted on 16 Jul 2020

This was a hard one for everyone this year. Glastonbury is a legendary festival, the biggest in Europe, and 2020 would have been its fiftieth anniversary. From the sea of tents, to the temperamental weather, gorgeous sunrises and extortionate but downright delectable food (depending on the vendor!) there is honestly something for absolutely everyone at Glastonbury. Throw into the mix crew catering, working with your mates, the pyramid stage, sights you’d never expect to see and of course the i read more...

Throwback Thursday – to Kew the Music!

Posted on 09 Jul 2020

Kew the Music is a music festival located in the beautiful grounds of Kew Gardens. Appealing to music lovers of all ages, it’s the ideal summer evening outing in spectacular surroundings. So understandably, we’re all disappointed to not be there. DC Site Services is proud to have proved waste management services to Kew the music for a number of years, and though we’re sad to not be there now due to the current circumstances, it’ll make returning in 2021 all the more gratifying! If you happene read more...

So far we’ve caught up with Dan & Summer, Dave & Jane, and last week Ed. This week we’re catching up with a few more names you’ll recognise, Lorraine Cocker (old-school DC!), Sammi Ingram and Michelle Hession.

Catching up with Ed Hawker!

Posted on 17 Jun 2020

In previous weeks we’ve caught up with DC regulars Dan and Summer, and then Dave and Jane. This week we’re catching up with Ed Hawker who you may know as DC’s Operations Manager at the Office, or as the shouty person on the radio onsite at Glastonbury or Leeds festival. Ed has used his time to focus on his family by home-schooling and going for bike rides with his son, Harrison, and by stretching those green thumbs of his to lend his dad a hand in the family gardening business. Not only has he read more...

This week we’re touching base with two more DC regulars, Dave and Jane! Dave and Jane have worked with DC for the past five years and can usually be spotted at Glastonbury, in fancy dress (of course) killing it on shift and giving the young’uns a run for their money! Not ones to stay sedentary and read more...

Keeping in touch!

Posted on 03 Jun 2020

For many of us, we can’t help but think about which festivals we’d ordinarily be working at right now, the desperate amongst us even setting up tents in our back gardens! The hardest part of lockdown has undoubtedly been missing our friends and family, working at the festivals has never just been a job, it’s also a way of forging long-lasting relationships with people we might not otherwise meet – people you may be missing right now. So, because of this, we’d like to touch base with some familia read more...

What a difference a month makes! This is certainly not how we foresaw this year transpiring and like everyone else right now, we find ourselves quickly trying to adapt to the new and constantly developing circumstances with which we are faced. First and foremost, while many Events & Festivals have been cancelled or postponed, we’re pleased and touched by the amount of event organisers who have requested to lock-in DC’s services for 2021.

Goodbye to Deposits!

Posted on 21 Jan 2020
