Slam Dunk Festival, the UK’s biggest independent Rock Festival.

Slam Dunk South 2018 at Hatfield Park - how we helped

Our initial brief was to provide internet access utilising our Satellite Broadband. However, realising they could procure other services required at the festival, the organisers also asked us to supply CCTV and a radio system.

Broadband Internet Connectivity

Taking place at a large site the Festival required internet access across approximately 12 locations such as the Production Office, Press Office, Hospitality, the Act's Rest Areas, Ticket Entry and Catering.

To handle the anticipated data traffic our Installation Team installed 15 satellite dishes around the site to cover the locations that had been specified.

To provide WiFi access points the internet connections were channelled in through the satellite dishes, through a modem and onto routers. To further expand coverage we also integrated Point To Point access points with the Satellite Broadband.

During the festival, the internet connection was used not only to provide access to the web but also allowed access to web based services such as payment transactions for the many vendors on the site.



CCTV was required to cover the main stages and the front row with footage made available in the Production Office.

Our CCTV Engineers installed the CCTV system and working with our Satellite Broadband Engineers integrated the CCTV system with the Satellite Broadband.

Via a Point To Point wireless connection, camera footage was streamed to the Production Office.

Radio solutions for Festivals image

Two Way Radio

Rather than a back to back radio system, to provide good coverage to all users in all areas our Radio Engineers installed a radio system utilising a repeater to boost coverage across the festival site.

To provide high quality audio right to the edge of coverage we provided a digital system and a range of accessories, charging stations and spare batteries.


Whilst we helped provide the initial internet solution needed, the Slam Dunk organisers
were able to streamline purchasing of other solutions they required through a single supplier.
Planning was simplified by dealing with a single contact point.
