Port Eliot Festival Responsive Website and CMS Case Study

Our long standing relationship with Port Eliot Festival, made us experts in developing a fully responsive bespoke web application to truly reflect the unique identity of the festival. The unique artist sign up and approval feature allows for an efficient and smooth work flow transition, as well giving the client full control over what acts are released onto the live site. It was heavily praised from Festival-goers using it to find out who was playing from their mobile devices during the weekend.

What we did

The website encourages a slick user journey, whilst showcasing the individuality of each artist and where to find them. Using our bespoke CMS platform with added bespoke functionality, the site has been tailor made.

Content rich experience

This fully responsive site proved very successful with festival goers using it to find out who was playing from their mobile devices during the weekend.

Artist Scheduling

The artists timetable and schedule is fully managed through our CMS and integrates across the site using our bespoke form system.

 * @return ArtistSlot
protected function createItem()
    $item = new ArtistSlot();

    if ($this->lineUpHelper->hasStage()) {

    return $item;

Easy listening

We integrated the Spotify API in to the Port Eliot Festival website allowing users to listen to the artists before or whilst at the festival.

Bespoke artist system

Artists are sent a link via email to a Port Eliot Festival artist sign up form. Once the form is submitted, our CMS automatically creates the artist in the system and takes all of the information submitted and applies it as a draft Artist. The CMS admin then reviews the information submitted and adds the artist in to the schedule. The artist’s profile is then set to live on the festival site.

Easy filtering for seamless usability

Complicated filtering can often result in losing users and causing serious frustration. We wanted to give festival goers an efficient and simple way to search for their favourite artists and find out what stages they are playing on.

All your favourite artists in one place

The selection of favourite artists are then collected and stored using cookies on the favourites page. Here the user is able to share with friends so that they can all watch the same artists or share with other devices in order to create a seamless festival experience.

Thanks so much for getting both the Port Eliot Festival and new Port Eliot House websites live. They both look magnificent and we all appreciate all you had to do to turn them around in time.
