“BES are the most professional, friendly and reliable equipment provider Compass Presents has had the pleasure of working with. Coming from the non-technical side of event production, BES really took the time to listen to our requirements and help us choose kit within the perimeters of our budget while still gaining maximum effect for our show. BES went above and beyond the call of duty, offering expert advise as well as providing brilliant kit. Finally, the whole BES team were always so friendly, enthusiastic and smiley- which goes such a long way when dropping off kit after hard days of putting on an event!”
Charlie Harman, Producer
“After hearing loads of good things about BES around Bristol we got in touch for our event at The Island at the beginning of May. We had a very specific vibe that we were going for with the lighting to set the tone for our art installation that hung behind the DJ. The team were super helpful and were great at giving advice on which lights would be perfect for the ambient pulsing kind of thing we wanted. Bex even programmed the desk for us to create a sequence for the evening. We couldn’t fault the BES team from start to finish and will definitely be using their expertise again for future events. Great knowledge, friendly crew and reasonable prices, can’t go wrong!”
Ben Jackson / Musu
Team Love / Love Saves The Day Festival
“We’ve worked with BES systems for over 5 years and countless events and they have never once let us down. Their service is exemplary in terms of professionalism and quality, in addition to complete calmness and resourcefulness when we add a whole load more equipment they need to supply to us at the 11th hour – they somehow always seem to come through.”
Tom Paine, Director
Tobacco Factory Café / Bar and Grain Barge
“Tobacco Factory Enterprises have been hiring DJ equipment from BES for many many years now along with staging, PA and lights for our live music and circus events across multiple venues. The equipment has always been in pristine condition and they are able to supply any specification, any brand and any quantity at sometimes very short notice with delivery also being quick. Their customer service is really important to them so we’re going to keep on with them.”
Kit McKenzie, Music & Promotion
Kambe Events / Shambala Festival
“Shambala Festival has been employing the services of BES for many years now. They provide a huge amount of lights, PA equipment, turntables and mixers throughout the site. They always go above and beyond the call of duty, are incredibly helpful and their prices are always very keen. I have recommended them to many other events who have also been very happy with the service that they have received and I will continue to recommend them. They have grown dramatically over the years, but they have never lost their attention to detail and professionalism. They are a delight to work with and their advice is always bang on the money.”
Dan Rafferty, Shambala festival organiser
“We’ve been working with BES Systems for over 10 years providing our sound , lighting and staging requirements, they deliver an exemplary service each time. They are approachable, professional and understand our needs and that of our partners, delivering everything on time and budget. Long may it continue!”
Frankie Mann, Event Organiser
“The team at BES Systems are professional, easy to work with and always reliable. They offer a quality service, providing high-end equipment and a skilled crew.”
Sol Curry, Managing Director
“There has been a lack of a really decent backline supplier in the south west for years meaning we have had to pay extortionate transport costs to get kit in from London. I was advised to try BES Systems by a colleague and we have not been disappointed. Their customer service is fantastic, nothing is to much trouble and the kit they supply is industry standard, good quality and very well looked after. I would happily recommend them to any colleague and will continue to use them whenever we’re working in the southwest.”
“BES are great to work with, always accommodating our needs, no matter how last minute and the sound quality they deliver is second to none in Bristol.”

“I would just like to thank and congratulate you on helping to create what was a fantastic event and a day to remember. You and you team were brilliant and a pleasure to work with. The guest and client feedback we have already received has been overwhelming and I am sure the guests will be talking about the day for a long time to come. I hope you have a great rest of the summer. On behalf of the whole Two PennyBlue team, thank you and we look forward to working with you again very soon.”
Dan Johnson, Managing Director
“An excellent and professional 5* service and equipment. Not only was Tom very knowledgeable with all our needs, but also accommodating to last minute requests. Highly recommended.”
Southmead Hospital Charity
“A huge thank you to you and your team for everything you did on Saturday – the event was a great success raising over £17,000 on the night and we are expecting more to follow.
You were so helpful in sorting out my complete lack of knowledge in this area and the team on the night where incredibly professional.
Very many thanks once again – I would not hesitate to recommend you to colleagues”
Elizabeth Bond, Trust and Major Donor Manager
Severnside Sub Aqua Club
“This is the third year that I have organised the bands, music, lights and stage for the Severnside Sub Aqua Club Yard Party at Bristol Harbour Festival.
Our 2015 event has been the largest and most successful event yet, due in no small part to us selecting BES Systems as one of our event partners for the first time.
Tom and the B-E-S Team assisted us greatly with their expertise and I value the professional guidance and the reliability of the service B-E-S provided. Managing bands and schedules at events is very stressful enough, so having a partner you can rely on to deliver what you need to support the event is absolutely invaluable.
B-E-S Systems helped us produce a quality event that was second to none throughout the Harbour festival, and I look forward to working with them again next time we stage the event.”
Jason Grey, Event Music Coordinator
The Downs School
“Just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of the School for the great job you did for us on Friday. Your guys were excellent and we are very grateful for the way you stepped in at short notice with no fuss. Thank you very much.”
