We are incredibly proud to announce that the annual Splendour Festival held in Nottingham will be utilising Haptic Networks' WiFi solution.
Playing host to top names such as Jess Glynne, Stiff Little Fingers, UB40, The Fratellis and Turin Brakes the festival is recognised as the city’s biggest summer day out and shortlisted in the final three for Best Festival in the national Live Music Business awards.
DHP Family and Nottingham City Council are keen to replicate the success of last year which saw 20,000 festival goers sprawled across Wollaton Park. With lots happening all over the park aside from the three music stages, including comedy in the courtyard, a kids’ area and entertainers out and about in the crowd, the festival is a fantastic day out for all the family.
George Akins, owner, DHP Family, said: “We’re delighted to bring bands to Splendour that have contributed so much to the musical heritage in this country. Once again, we’re confident that our mix of music legends along with some of the hottest artists of the moment will make it a winning day out for everyone, whatever their age or musical taste.”
Councillor Dave Trimble, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Nottingham City Council, said: “We’re pleased to announce a great line-up for Splendour Festival that I think Nottingham people will love. Splendour really is the highlight of the summer and with acts like Jess Glynne, The Human League, UB40 and The Darkness, tickets are sure to sell fast. Splendour truly offers something for all tastes in music, and with the comedy stage and kids’ area it’s a really fun family day out.”
Haptic have provided a full outdoor Ruckus WiFi solution to enable festival-goers the solid, reliable, family friendly WiFi connection they need to enhance their (hopefully sunny!) day out.
