Event WiFi Solution for Back2The80s Festival

"So impressed we are using them every year at our festival!"

Back2The80s were looking for a reliable and robust WiFi solution for their festival in Manchester. The two-day festival extravaganza saw tribute acts from legendary 80s artists such as Queen, Whitney, David Bowie, Bon Jovi and more.


Back2The80s required WiFi connectivity for two areas of the site festival—the bar and the main ticketing entrance.

Their requirements were clear:
