CPS keeps the Blackpool Lights on
With over 100 artists on stage over three days at one amazing venue, Blackpool Festival 2018, held in July on the new Tower Festival Headland, needed plenty of power to keep it going.
With some of the world’s most famous DJs playing live sets on stage, from Faithless to Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo to Paul Oakenfold, dependable power was essential to keep the turntables turning, the mikes live and the mixers smoothly segueing the tracks.
The huge crowds that flocked to the seafront partied on all day and night, blissfully unaware of the efforts of the CPS team. We installed no less than seven portable generators, to both supply main power and to create an instant backup in case anything went wrong.
“The show must go on,” explained John Fitzmaurice – Regional Sales Manager, CPS. “Especially when you have thousands of happy festival-goers to entertain. CPS designed a system with the capacity to keep the festival flying all day and long into the night, whatever happened.”
It took our team a few days to get everything in place and wired up safely, but it was all worthwhile. The two huge days of dance went without a hitch, with the CPS generators purring away beneath the music. And they were still going strong on the Sunday for the children’s day with favourite friends like Peppa Pig and Peter Rabbit.
The festival season is always busy for us at CPS, but to be part of such a party, attracting a truly world-class line up to Lancashire, was a real privilege.

I would like to convey my thanks to your company for the professional approach and quick response to our call, it set the customer at ease that we could respond so quickly especially as he had called a supplier on their books and couldn’t get a definite response as to when they could get one.Midlands Power Networks Ltd
Just a quick email to say many thanks for sending Andy to site at such short notice. As usual Andy was brilliant, explaining things to my management and to one of the electrical managers that was on site to investigate the power down. His calm and assured explanation of the issue and the positive way he dealt with the units and brought them back on-line is a credit to CPS.Durham County Council

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the speedy response to our generator hire requirement yesterday afternoon/evening. The location for the generator was less than ideal for your operative to get into however he persevered and got it in there albeit a long delivery and late finish. Once again, a very speedy, professional and reasonably priced job.Gareth Owens - HFL Building Solutions
