Located in Achterhoek, the eastern region of the Netherlands, Zwarte Cross is one of the largest annual outdoor music and sports festivals in Europe. The event had over 220,000 total attendees at the 2018 festival, which took place from July 12th – 15th. The festival includes 33 stages, and spans a distance of 160 hectares across three villages and has 40,000 employees. As the festival grew and evolved the technology and communication needs did as well.
To support all these entities, continue to run a smooth, safe event, and to appease the mobile expectations of festival-goers, Zwarte Cross teamed up with Extreme Networks to design and deploy a purpose-built network solution for the 2018 festival.
