Promoter: ???????????
Security: ESP Entertainment Security Personel
Where: Torquay Vic Australia
When: Easter long Weekend Approx 4 days

This was a great gig held on a sheep property in Victoria Australia over 4 days. The main problem faced by the Security staff I supervised was contraband as the osganisers saw fit to have their own staff carry out the search and seizure of over 17,000 people.We (the security then had to patrol the campsites and seize and/or evict anyone that wasn't searched properly. The promoters also had their own ""security"" to ""assist"" us, when we could find them?? Although they new how to use a radio when they needed urgent back-up when they mis handled a situation. They didn't wear a uniform and not identified as security unless they were asked questions like Who the F?#@*<""? do you think you are? By the end of the gig the REAL SECURITY were being blamed for various indiscressions That I can personally say were not the actions of the ESP Staff. It was clearly a way for the organisers to cut costs buy hireing their own ""security"" as well as employing a truly professional company. AG
