This Saturday 21 July, SimpliWifi will be providing superfast internet connectivity for R&B, hip hop and dance festival, Kisstory on the Common.

The one-day event will feature a range of DJs and artists, including the likes of DJ Luck & MC Neat, Romeo & Lisa Maffia and Fatman Scoop.


The festival is the largest ever hosted by UK radio station, KISS, with more than 10,000 guests expected to attend.

The “all-dayer” event will be spread across three stages headlined by some of the biggest artists from the genres of dance and hip hop music. There will also be entertainment for guests including Karaoke, laser tag, a ball pit and more.

By increasing the scale and scope of the event, the organisers require an extensive, reliable and fast communications and connectivity system in place to ensure the smooth running of the event and the safety of guests.

To achieve this, we have been asked to deploy a site-wide internet connection for health and safety, security and other event management teams, as well as vendors and guests.

Our strategy

We will provide a bespoke WiFi set up which links centrally into a main communications hub. We will use bonded 4G connections with a failover to multiple satellite connections providing a total bandwidth on site of around 400 Mbps. By using a failsafe network, we can build a robust system with little to no chance of failure.

We will also develop a bespoke WiFi guest portal to enable guests to connect to the internet.

During the event, our on-site support team will be on hand to maintain the system and help festival staff connect to the network.
