What are the very best strategies for communicating at concerts

Latest news – For many years communications at major concerts have been a necessary element, at a time of a major incident or just a method of sendind a mass communication across to all that is working, 2 way radios have been the reliable source for the task. Two different ways of providing this significant element is to rent a group of radios for the event, from a nearby two way radio rental company or secondly is to purchase a future-proof digital system that allows separate calling, text messaging and the modern communication equipment.


Conferences, Exhibitions, Sports, Arts and Culture, Rallies, Shows, Music Festivals and much more are now part of our everyday lives, often held at venues that were never designed for the purpose, from public roads to large open spaces. Indoor events too have grown with many exhibitions taking place in multi-hall, purpose built centres.

From the management of contractors and deliveries at the build-up, to security, safety and co-ordination during the event, through to the break-down and clean up, organisers and their teams are well aware that they should expect the unexpected in whatever form it takes.

Which is why the use of two-way radios in event management is so widespread at events and for good reason; whatever happens in and around an event, someone needs to know, and two-way radios provide the instant, reliable communications tool that underpins a successful event.

Kenwood have been involved in supplying its proven two-way radio equipment to major events for many years, both in the ever present walkie-talkies and the complete trunked communications centres. These allow Contractors, Crowd Management, Safety and Medical teams, Stewards, Artist Management, VIP Concierge Services, Caterers, Site and Stage Management, Transport, Sanitation and of course Security staff to communicate within their own groups and cross-communicate with extended event management teams.

Now, with the extended coverage and security offered by Kenwood NEXEDGE® Digital Two Way radios, their unique analogue/digital Mixed Mode (which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios whatever the make) and turn-key digital trunked system and network capability, companies supplying or operating two-way radios at events have a straightforward and economical path to migrate to the benefits of digital at an affordable cost.
