Nashville, Tennessee-- Allmost 80,000 music fans will head to Manchester, Tennessee this June for the annual Bonnaroo Music Festival. The four-day, multi-stage festival is held on a 700-acre farm in a city located halfway between Nashville and Chattanooga.
There will be 150 performances, several dozen comedians and more than 10 stages of music. With all of that epic stuff happening, fans will certainly want to stay connected to their social network to show off the awesome things they are experiencing.
AT&T is helping them do just that by blanketing the area with some cool tools.
They include two MegaCOWs and three COWs. COW stands for cell sites on wheels. The MegaCOWs are like seven combined cell sites.
Fans’ devices will also be able to access multi-beam antennas that help strengthen the 4G LTE network in the area. That’s allows fans five times more network capacity than a single-beam antenna.
And mobile cell sites, that cover several of the stages, will let fans connect when they need to.
And if you are one of the lucky ones getting to go, AT&T is the premier sponsor of the official Bonnaroo Festival mobile application. It let’s you stay up-to-date on all things Bonnaroo, including a full scheduled list of performers and events; a detailed festival map with all stages, vendors, and retailers.
“Bonnaroo draws in tens of thousands of festival goers and music lovers every year,” said Chris Percy, AT&T vice president and general manager, mobility and consumer markets for Tennessee and Kentucky. “As part of the Manchester community, we want to make sure those attending the festival have an exceptional wireless experience. AT&T’s network enhancements will enable the thousands of Bonnaroo attendees to use their wireless devices to stay connected while texting, making calls, sharing photos and utilizing social media platforms with blazing fast 4G LTE speeds.”
