EL PASO, Texas and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the success of Firechat at UME and SMF, Disco Donnie Presents is teaming with Firechat again to enable live, off-the-grid communications at the upcoming Sun City Music Festival in El Paso, TX on September 5-6.
Attracting over 40,000 attendees, the Sun City Music Festival, also known as "Sun City," is one of the largest electronic dance music events in the US. The 2015 edition will take place in El Paso, Texas, on September 5th and 6th, to welcome celebrated artists and DJs, including Armin Van Buuren, Hardwell, Dash Berlin, DVBBS, NERVO and Zeds Dead.
FireChat's award-winning technology lets you communicate without an Internet or Wi-Fi connection, by allowing people to create their own peer-to-peer network using only their mobile phones.
"We're thrilled to partner with Disco Donnie Presents and SMG Events at Sun City for our third collaboration after UME and SMF," said Christophe Daligault, FireChat's Chief Marketing Officer. "An increasing number of festivalgoers use FireChat to stay in touch with their friends and chat live with their favorite artists, before, during and after the event. It's a great feeling to solve communication problems while helping everyone have a fun time."
