Instagram is a wealth of motivation, inspiration and a ton of selfies but every once in a while it shares some awesome pictures to give a little more insight into what actually goes on at events from the attendees, sponsors, staff or guests who are there. An homage to event planning we share some amazing pictures that definitely don’t disappoint. Whether you just want to browse some event awesomeness or you need a creativity boost these 30 crazy event pics show you that anything is possible when it comes to events and event planners creating extra special experiences.

This event experience in the Kuwait desert shown by Charlene Scodellaro is enough to leave us turning down lunch or inspired to at least leave our desk and go for a walk. These people are insane!
Beer Pong Tournament
There’s nothing like turning event games into their own tournament and Matthieu Duran shows us the Winamax Beer Pong Open in Paris, to show how crazy things can get when you scale things up.
This is an insanely awesome idea by Party Swank NYC for servers at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York who are suspended acrobats that also serve champagne! What more could you need? Entertainment and refreshment all in one.
Pool Party Antics
Have you ever thrown a pool party or event? Well it probably had nothing on this one shown off by Hannah Taylor-James at the Griffith University Village, how many more people are they going to try and fit in that pool?
This event by Pegasus Productions has turned everything red, from the acrylic dancefloor to the backdrop screen through to the décor. Is it too much?
Diwali is the yearly Hindu festival of lights and prompts many events worldwide but this has to be our favorite snap from Wedding Duo who managed to create floating light umbrellas to complement the sophisticated candlesticks in this outdoor event.

Indoor shrubbery is one thing when you are looking to bring an outdoor element to an indoor event but Lebanese Events take it one step further with this summer arrangement that is basically a whole garden separating the buffet tables!

This genius solution to venues with limited space by Corporate and Leisure Events is to use the overhanging roof for artists and music that blends into the background without taking anything away from the floor space below.
Toilet Paper Finish Line
Nothing says crazy sporting event like Klondike International Outhouse Race and the winners last year were this insane team including Amber Faucon dressed as The Spice Girls, crossing the line to the only suitable material, toilet paper.
Dior Couture 2017

Showing off exactly what a collaboration with Flowers Time will get you, the cascading flowers combined with the flower carpet create an atmosphere we definitely want at our next event!
White Night Melbourne
This incredibly vibrant public event in Australia involves lighting displays and illustrations throughout the city. Alex shows off his view of the White Night display which looks amazing using projection mapping onto the building.
The amount of seated guests Save The Date NYC have managed to get in this narrow venue is insane, the tables are double sided and go on for what seems like forever. We don’t know which event this was from but this, coupled with the chandelier/candelabra combo, make us wish we were there!
This wedding installation by Masha Kamenskaya brings a whole new meaning to the wedding event experience and was clearly designed to be as much of a part of the guest’s day than the couples. With acrobats, weird and wonderful décor and a podium that the couple could get married on in the midst of it all, this is definitely a wedding that is unlikely be forgotten!
Dawson City Lady Wrestlers Event
This brawling event in Dawson City Yukon looks fierce and insane and as “Ramona” seen here is winning against her rival with a huge amount of effort. The crowds are going wild, teaching us not to get on Ramona’s bad side!
Red Bull Soapbox Baku 2016
The Red Bull Soapbox event is always a crazy, yet hilarious affair, as everyone tries to go more lavish and outdo each other (let’s also not forget the introduction “style” points portion) and this picture from A+A Events highlights the creativity, venue and production that goes into creating one of the craziest annual events.
Wireless LED Lights
This wireless fairy lit dance floor has indoor trees and no wires for an ethereal feel and no hazards! Pegasus Productions also included matching centerpieces for this crazy cool venue set-up.

This stage illusion captured by Getty Fashion at the 2017 London Fashion week is Alpine-inspired but the multi-levelled stage and runway make this look trippy!
This awesome photo from Green Dot Events showcases exactly what you can do with weird shaped venues and how best to keep the layout. The lighting rigging and chandelier alone give this one a gothic vibe!
Music festivals are one thing but this image by Frank takes things one step further. This massive crowd is gathered and raving at the hands of this electronic and house DJ and let’s be honest, he is drinking it all in, definitely a view to savour!
Flower Drop Ceiling
This event venue in New York prepared by Pegasus Productions looks stunning but the crazy part is how much they have used the flowers and décor to lower the ceiling of a high room to create a more intimate setting for this function. It looks impeccable!
Desert Bar Mitzvah
Taking destination events to the next level, this desert Bar Mitzvah became an overnight affair complete with fire pit and games thanks to Danny Marx Event Productions.
