Ramsac has won a contract to provide network support for V Festival 2009 for the sixth year running.
V Festival is taking place on 22 and 23 August at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex and Weston Park in Staffordshire.
The VAR was chosen by promoters Maztec to support the backstage network that provides internet and email access to temporary on-site offices for the production teams and performers at the Hylands Park site.
Bob Angus, director of the V Festival, said: "It is very important that the production teams of the headline and supporting acts have internet access and as the festival promoters, we must have access to our company network to co-ordinate all event logistics.
"Ramsac has provided excellent backstage IT support for the past five years and we are very happy that they have decided to accept the challenge for the sixth year running.”
Ramsac will also be on hand throughout the two-day event for consultancy, on-site support and to ensure any technical problems are dealt with immediately.
Paul Mew, technical director at Ramsac, said: “We'll have a dedicated support team there throughout the weekend to ensure that all technical problems are rectified as soon as possible. As well as ensuring the overall IT infrastructure, there are specific needs associated with an event such as this – for example some of the supporting acts only have limited time in their dressing rooms, so it is essential that they are able to access the internet and their emails instantly.”
