Defender on the “island of freedom”

Adam Hall’s Defender brand of cable protectors once again proved why they are the industry and event standard worldwide. From 10th to 17th August, this year’s Sziget Festival took place on the island of Óbuda in the middle of Budapest. Cable protectors from the Defender range were standard safety equipment on the many stages.

The Sziget Festival is one of the largest multi-cultural events in Europe. Founded in 1993, this year Sziget celebrated its 24th year. The festival attracted close to 400,000 fans from over 70 countries. On this beautiful “island of freedom”, as claimed by the organisers, the guests experienced a festival holiday with a non-stop party atmosphere, great live concerts on approximately 50 stages and approximately 200 programmed events every day.

At Sziget, however, it is not just about music. The festival offers a variety of cultural activities such as theatre, circus and several exhibitions. The bands on the bill ranged from world-renowned stars, the biggest names on the international pop/rock scene to smaller bands and musicians from the metal, folk, jazz, blues, alternative and world music genres. The Sziget Festival even featured classical music! The line-up included well-known artists such as Skunk Anansie, Chemical Brothers, Rihanna, Muse, David Guetta, Sum 41, Sia, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Kaiser Chiefs, Jess Glynne and many more.

As long-standing Adam Hall Group partners in Hungary, the company Elimex had recommended Defender Midi cable protectors for the festival. These DEKRA-certified, lightweight, polyurethane low profile cable protectors feature 5 channels, moulded connectors and an approved and EU-patented plastic cover. Defender Midi cable protectors offer the additional benefits of B2 flame class as well as a load-bearing capacity of approximately five tonnes over an area of 20 x 20 centimetres.

“I am delighted that together with our long-time partner Elimex, we have once again been able to show why Defender cable protectors are the market leader in Europe, and that customers such as Sziget have great confidence in our products. Furthermore, I am also pleased to see the continued, growing presence of Defender products in the South-Eastern European region.”
