Plot. Our festival & event CMS framework.

We’d like to introduce you to Plot. The engine behind successful event & festival website experiences.

We work with a number of events and festivals globally, delivering a positive impact for our clients.

Working with Parklife, Field Day, Winterville, Y Not, and Truck to name a few – we provide a range of services from brand creation through to design and development of the website.

The website is of vital importance and is admittedly the cornerstone of most marketing efforts, the key sales vehicle of tickets and the shareable asset that helps grow the social audience.

We know from our experience that it’s really important to have:

  • Exceptional design and front-end development talent to create websites that are stylish, unique and exciting to experience
  • Development solutions that help us roll out bespoke websites in the quickest amount of time possible
  • Content management systems designed for busy marketing teams, to allow for speedy, simple updates
  • Increased flexibility so festival teams can manage their websites throughout the life-cycle of the event
  • Longevity in our sites that provides a solid foundation to be improved year on year

We enjoy the creative freedom working with like-minded people and the work is loved, shared and very much appreciated by our clients. We want to help all festivals – whether they are a sell out 60,000 capacity, or in their first year hoping to sell 2,000 tickets – but with wildly varying budgets and ideas.

Since using Project Simply we have seen an instant increase in social sharing of the website by more than 15%


So we created Plot.

Plot is a Festival and event-specific CMS framework which has a couple of major benefits:

  1. It reduces the time we spend on development when creating your festival, which means we can spend more time on exceptional creative ideas and design
  2. It streamlines the way the festival marketing team set up and manage the festival website, saving loads of time and client side expense

By combining our expertise, creative talents and Plot, we can create sales-ready, ticket selling machines that also generate buzz, shares and social kudos. Through reductions in development time, we can put more effort into stand-out creative for the bigger budget festivals, and also create something convincing and engaging for festivals with more conservative budgets.

Plot has saved up to 50% of my time, allows me to switch up, edit and customise my own pages and I require much less development assistance


Plot is packed full of functionality that helps event and festival marketing teams streamline their experience right from simple yet intuitive user interface design right through to artist and stage management features. Based on client feedback we’ll explain a few of the most popular functions in Plot and why they help.

Complete CMS flexibility and control

Inside Plot we’ve built some clever functionality that allows the festival marketing team to launch their own sequences and content-reveals of the festival website experience – right from pre-registration pages, through line-up releases, to thank you pages – with complete control over edits. This saves time and stops delays.

Simple Ticketing

We know how time consuming setting up ticketing is on your website; you’ve got tiers, days, types and packages alongside alerts on supply. In light of this, we’ve created a simple-to-use ticketing process that creates everything you need in a matter of minutes, and hands the power of changes back to you.

Holding pages at your fingertips

We’ve given you the ability to create your own simple festival landing pages. Pre-reg and thank you pages no longer need to be long, drawn-out, costly affairs; they can be created on the fly, quickly and easily, by you, whenever you want.

We continue to develop and improve our well-trodden creative process and expertise, alongside our Festival CMS Plot, to better the digital festival experience, and we look forward to helping your festival better engage your audience, sell more tickets and grow.

We worked with Project Simply on Parklife. They are a pleasure to work with and they deliver high spec, great performing work
