For the seventh year running Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council are running their popular music festival ’Basingstoke Live’. A celebration of Basingstoke’s music scene, Basingstoke Live showcases the best local talent as well as featuring national and international artists from all musical genres on its 4 stages.
The most recent iteration of the website needed refreshing without fundamentally changing
Although the existing structure was to remain, the live event website design needed to be updated in order to enhance the users’ experience and raise the perception of Basingstoke Live. The four sound stages were each given their own branding that was aligned with the branding of Basingstoke Live but also that reflected the genre of music they would showcase.
Basingstoke and Deane Borough council’s Events Team needed to be able to manage content themselves
In order for the Events Team to add events to the line up, publish news stories or promote events, a CMS system based in Expression Engine was developed to enable users to edit content on the website.
With Basingstoke Live right on our doorstep, we were proud to be involved
Being a website design agency based in Basingstoke, working with our local council on such a vibrant and exciting event within our community was great opportunity to showcase our work.
