Gibtelecom - enhancing your festival experience through technology

Gibtelecom is the Official Technology Partner of this year’s Gibraltar Music Festival, which is being held on 3 and 4 September 2016 at the Victoria Stadium. The Company is working with the music festival team to enhance the communications technology at the event, and in particular the availability and performance of its Gibtel mobile network at the festival. 

Working with the Gibraltar Music Festival (GMF) team, Gibtelecom’s core technologies and mobility solutions are to be used across the festival to power all of the communications, content delivery and payment solutions. Gibtelecom is providing enterprise grade fibre connectivity and Wi-Fi services throughout the Victoria Stadium, helping keep the artists, media and production teams connected. Additionally, Gibtelecom is powering the connectivity which will facilitate the cashless payment solutions at the event.

Adrian Ochello, Head of Marketing and Business Development at Gibtelecom, said: “as social media usage on our network continues to soar, we have worked with the GMF team to deliver a connected festival experience.  We have invested heavily in optimising the 4G+ and 3G networks at the festival venue to ensure customers can continue to benefit from their data plans and share their experiences. We want to help everyone there stay in touch with friends and share every memory, using our superfast technology to get the most out of their experience at Gibraltar’s biggest music festival. Gibtelecom looks forward to welcoming you to the Gibtelecom stage and to sharing this year’s Gibraltar Music Festival experience with all of you”

Gibtelecom is also sponsoring the second stage on which some of the main acts will perform. Festival goers will also have the chance to get their pictures on the big screens at the Gibtelecom Stage, by uploading pictures of themselves with the hashtag #GMF16. This will be linked to an exclusive competition to be launched at the festival. 

In the run up to the festival Gibtelecom is also giving customers the chance to win a VIP festival weekend, consisting of four VIP tickets, transfers to and from the festival, a meet and greet with 80s superstars Europe and a goody bag of festival merchandise.
