WHAT WE DO
Trucked Up Entertainment deliver you circus and sideshow performers, with unique hire items and mobile circus stages for corporate and private events. We are an entertainment agency and production company rolled into one. All entertainment options are for hire and when we have a show on that we've produced, we'll tell you all about it.
We bring the circus to you, with options for any space, being it your backyard, a function room, nightclub or a large stage.
Trucked Up Entertainment stands out from your usual entertainment agency providers because we're fully involved in creating and producing custom feature acts, props, apparatus and costumes. We dare to go where other agencies do not, being fuelled by ideas and a love of hands-on creativity.
We have a long history of producing high quality entertainment solutions, from being an arts entertainment venue, directing and producing sell-out shows, managing outdoor festivals and even getting on stage ourselves. This is an all-encompassing approach to entertainment where we learn and practice by being in the thick of the industry.
Beginning operations in 2015, the Velodrome has since risen in profile as one of Australia’s premier music festival venues.
Once an underutilised sports facility, the Coburg Velodrome is now renowned for music and lifestyle festivals, local and Indigenous
community fairs, and major charity events (including the highly celebrated Ability Fest). Produced in partnership with the Dylan Alcott
Foundation, Ability Fest is the world’s first music festival catering specifically to patrons with disabilities. Promoted to raise awareness of
inclusivity while raising money for young Australians with disabilities, Ability Fest has raised over $350,000 in its first two years.
Our team are the first commercial event producers to organise major ticketed events for both municipalities of Moreland and Yarra Cities.
After working with each council to establish theinitial guidelines for these events, we continue to work in close partnership with
a number of their departments (including arts and culture, building, and environmental health). Most importantly, we
pride ourselves on working with individual councillors to develop stakeholder management procedures and reporting.
