Corona Sunset Festival  

The Corona Sunset Festival is a mobile beach festival that has visited many cities all over the world. The festival is designed to replicate that of a perfect summer’s day, with a line up packed with eclectic musical performances, food, drink and beach games.

In recent years, the festival has proved extremely popular in locations such as Puerto Rico, Spain, Columbia, South Africa and even Australia. So you can imagine that the local residents and tourists alike, were delighted to hear it was taking up residence in the UK in Greenwich, London.

The Gorilla Marketing events team got in touch with Day Aggregates to help create the ideal beach festival environment. Day Aggregates has worked on many similar projects but this was by far the largest artificial beach that they had supplied!

The festival required a total of 560 tonnes of leisure sand (the equivalent to 20 loose tipped artic loads). Leisure sand is a fine grade material, with a washed aesthetic, which gives it a comparable look and feel as a tropical beach. This then made it the perfect choice for the project.

All of the material was hauled in by Day Aggregates, with the festival’s onsite team ready and waiting to create the perfect environment.

The festival was a great success, with more than 5,000 people attending. Guests enjoyed music from the likes of Robin Schulz and Felix Jaehn right up until the sun set over the city of London.

Once the event was over Day Aggregates returned to collect all of the sand. Nothing was wasted – the sand was taken back to its depot in Woking where it was resold as reject sand.
