Kickbox Donates Shipping Containers for Use in Lubbock’s Outside in Festival
The Inaugural Outside In festival was a hit this last weekend! Artist from all over the world converged in the Hub City to show off their creative range and talent. The challenge: modify or create a performance within the space of a shipping container. During the two-day duration of the festival each shipping container housed different acts ranging from comedy to and ballet to musicians and Broadway style performances. Lubbock based and Texas Tech Alumni Owned, Kickbox Leasing, LLC donated the use of several shipping containers for the festival allowing artists to customize their performance spaces and show off their works to the Lubbock community. “We could not make this happen without the support of Kickbox” mentioned Jehan Hormazidi. The Outside In Festival was created by Jehan, Cory Lawson, and Rachel Phillips of the Texas Tech School of Theatre and Dance. The concept mirrors The Over het IJ Festival in Amsterdam on a smaller scale. Performers included; Ballet Lubbock, Art In Motion, The Burktech Players and many several more.

Kickbox answered the call, and had their equipment moved within hours. The two other national brands with leased containers on the project, did not answer or gave us a time frame a few weeks out. Kickbox moved their container and the others at no additional charge. They literally saved the project schedule and allowed the client to occupy the structure on time!
