yskyfest2009018 2 - Stars of Strictly.jpg

Rouge created two weekend festivals, one in July in West London and one in Scotland in September. 

The legendary Will Young, the stars of Strictly Come Dancing, comedian Frankie Boyle, superstar DJ Seb Fontaine, Nickelodeon's Sponge Bob Square Pants and the stars of Disney's High School Musical were just some of the incredible line-up of entertainment.

On Friday night, despite the occasional downpour, The Sky Choir rocked the crowd and headline act Will Young took to the main stage, while under cover we created an indoor beach party the weather couldn’t touch.

Saturday was Family Day and Sky partner channels Disney, Nickelodeon, Nick Jnr, Cartoon Network and Cartoonito all provided family-friendly content in the Kids Arena and stars of English National Ballet were on hand to give dancing lessons to budding ballerinas.

In Edinburgh the final rounds of Skystars brought Sky's internal talent contest to a nailbiting conclusion and the lucky winners will make their TV debut in front of a live TV audience on Sky's new show later this year.

Each day on the main stage festival-goers were put through their paces by the Stars of Strictly, and the cast of High School Musical and the Hannah Montana Hoedown Showdown got the crowd limbered up before what was described by Guinness World Records as an “amazing record attempt”.

Rouge was also responsible for managing all logistics during the two-week build and on the day, from security, to transportation, including public transport, car parking, shuttle services, taxi ranks, public safety and health and safety and, in London, transforming a grass field into a full working festival site with toilets, trackway, fencing and associated structural works.
