On Friday, a WiFi outage caused issues with the bars processing card payments and led to huge queues for revellers trying to get drinks.

Victorious Festival posted a message on Facebook at 5.50pm yesterday advising punters to bring cash.

The message said: ‘We’re having a few connectivity issues, so please bring cash. Thank you for your patience.’
