The start of summer feels like a long time ago, and we kicked off supplying our drinks to festivals back in May over the Bank Holiday weekend. We started the festival season with a custom Rhubarb & Strawberry frozen cocktail blend with Belvedere Vodka in the VIP area of We Are FSTVL.
Our frozen Margarita and Tonic blends were a hit at many festival bars throughout the season, with the two top picks being served at Mighty Hoopla, Camp Bestival, Big Feastival and End of the Road Festival.
We also supplied to a few local events, which we were proud to be a part of. Walthamstow Garden Party, Lambeth Country Show and Chingfest were all able to serve our delicious frozen cocktails, as well as All Points East and British Summer Time, who put on 2 weekends each of super cool gigs in London, and served both our Margarita and Tonic frozen cocktail blends to their busy crowds.
You could also catch bars serving our frozen cocktails at 51st State at Trent Park in Enfield, Balter Festival in Chepstow and Brainchild, the not-for-profit celebration of the arts over in East Sussex; who all got to enjoy our frozen Margarita’s and Strawberry Daiquiri’s all weekend long.
Gearing Up For Glasto
We can’t do a festival round up without mentioning the big guns.
The guys in the kitchen and warehouse had to work super hard to get many litres of slush mix made for Glastonbury. The festival saw over 200,000 attendees take to the fields of Worthy Farm, and 1000’s of our frozen cocktails drank over the course of the long weekend. In collaboration with El Jimador and Mangrove, those at Glastonbury got to enjoy our frozen Margarita’s, as well as supplying our frozen Strawberry Daiquiri’s and Pornstar Martini blends to Avalon, and our Pornstar and Tonic blends to Events, Bars and Catering. It wasn’t just frozen cocktails on the menu of the bars at Glastonbury either, as our Rhubarb & Strawberry and Hedgerow blends were on offer too; for delicious, quickly made cocktails.
Another big one for us was Boomtown, where we worked with Freemans and supplied 14 of our frozen drinks machines to serve frozen Pornstar Martini’s and Strawberry Daiquiri’s across the weekend.
We pretty much rounded off our festival season with Victorious down in Portsmouth – a brilliant festival right on the coast, with stages looking out to the sea. Victorious saw 10 of our machines down at their busy bars to serve the Victorious Daiquiri using our Strawberry blend, and the Pompey Pornstar – which I’m sure as you can guess, featured our popular Passionfruit blend.
It’s definitely been a busy summer for the Icely Done team, and it’s fair to say our machines have done the rounds – with most of them present at more festivals than the majority of people we know!
Though, we can’t always rely on the weather to bring the good times, we can guarantee our frozen cocktails will go down an absolute treat with festivalgoers up and down the country.
We’re looking forward to see what next year’s festival season has to holds for us, but for now we’re enjoying taking a breather. Keep posted for updates of any events we’re at over the next few months, as well as our plans over winter!
