Review of Solis Street Party & Beer Festival

Overall rating: 2.5 Verified review

The street party had potential. The music was good. But the queuing was shocking. Queuing for the bar 30mins then straight to the toilet que for 45 minutes. We lasted 2 hours there and had to leave because of this. As did many other people.
The last entry was 4 and they where still letting people in at 5 when we left so I can only Imagine how bad it got later.
I feel slightly out of pock*t as it cost us 20 to join continuous ques. Absolutely shocking and never again It was such a shame though because the music was good while we where queuing.

Over crowded, Q's far to long, just not enough of anything given the number of people. Toilet situation was ridiculous. 30-45 minute in the Q.

Very very disappointed. The time we where there was spent in a q for something.

Toilet facilities were poor and not enough for the amount of people!
The venue was good but too small for the amount of people , couldn't move at all. There were not enough bars and staff on the bars, again for the amount of people. We left after only being able to get one drink because you couldn't come back in if you left and we couldn't get to the toilet. Good idea, if there was more facilities and bigger area it would have been great. But very poor, I'd like a refund!

What a let down, had been looking forward to this for months.. really bad event and will never go to anything organised by solis again.. one burger stall, 1. Pizza stall- overpriced!! Over crowded.. the queue for the beers/food were bad enough but the queue to go the toilet was not only dangerous to health but left pretty much everyone furious and p*ssed off, feeling degraded!!. So mad at the whole situation, only saviour was it was in city centre so sacked the "street party" off and had a great time in town!!

Good idea in principle, in practice not so much. A queue for a queue for a queue. Needs more businesses there to offer more for people attending and certainty more facilities for the amount of tick*ts sold! Overpriced and not worth it to be honest. Music was good though.

What was poor is that the organisers deleting comments of honest feedback from social media.

Absolutely shocking. Over capacity by about 300 people so queues for everything. 9 toilets do a 30 minute wait. Poor security so people were just pushing in. 1hr wait at the bar for over priced drinks. Was advertised as a "beer festival" however there was one tiny stall and the wait for over an hour. Also advertised showing photos of coronation st set, when we tried to take photos we were told off by a very rude security woman who threatened to kick us out if we did it again. There was no signs explaining no pictures and the way she spoke to us was shocking. I have since left a review on the events Facebook page only for it to be deleted. I would like a full refund and apology!

Wish I didn't bother. It's not the fact I had to queue to queue to queue it's the fact that after when we posted our dosappointment on the event page they were swiftly deleted with no apology or acknowledgement. The facilities consisted of 15 portaloos for 3000 people and there were maybe 6 bars. On to the music. The tunes were alright but were ruined by constant sax I enjoy sax as much as the next person but sparingly not over every single disco tune. Finally il end on the false advertisement. They clearly posted pictures of the coronation street set and we knew as it's been demolished we wouldn't be on the set but the cherry on the top was being accosted by a she witch screaming that we couldn't take pictures with the Wethersfield police sign a simple sign or communication befor the event that was advertised with coronation greet would have been nice. Also maybe to have kept the guard on a leash or at least taught her some basic customer service. It was underwhelming, over sold and definitely didn't measure up to what was advertised. We left after an hour and 30 of that was queuing for a drink. Personally I feel the organisers don't care that the majority of people had a bad time and they were in it purely for profit. I'd ask for a refund but they'd probably delete that request too. Don't go to solis scam party.

Absolute disappointment this one. Firstly had to queue for 45 minutes to get in despite having already bought tick*ts. Understandably after what happened last week in Manchester the security was stepped up but more than a couple of people checking bags on the door was needed. The venue was way too small for the amount of tick*ts sold, trying to walk through it was a nightmare. Definitely not enough facilities to cater for everyone either; we queued for another 45 minutes to get a drink at one of only 3 bars in the main "beer hall". The gin was very nice but everything way overpriced. The rest of the drinks vendors were outside and the queues were equally as big. You could have fitted a few more bars in the main hall for sure. Think I only spotted 2 food stalls in the whole venue, it was as if they had a bigger list of vendors coming to the event but then they all bailed at the last minute. Music was pretty good but we left after about 2 hours, most of which we had spent queuing for one thing or another. Great idea in principle but very badly executed and organised this time around. Won't be going again! And apparently someone at Solis was deleting all the bad reviews left on their Facebook page last night... at least let people have their say if they were disappointed!

Not as advertised, beer hall with one beer seller, missing rum in the rum punch, street food reflecting Manchester' diverse culture, was pizza and burgers!! Celebrating all things Manchester, no celebration of Manchester at all. Hardly any toilets no place to wash hands, no disabled facilities at all. Plastered photos of corrie all over, try taking a photo with any remaining set and be abused off security, all in all somebody took the mick and made a lot of money, I'd like a refund.

This event was awful. Just two food stalls and 3 beer stalls. Hardly a festival. About 12 loos so the queue for the toilet was about 25 mins. Burger stall had no electricity so queues were 15 minutes and the meat was bloody, hardly cooked through. Terrible organisation and not what was on the advert.

Hour long queue. Massive queues for every drink station, there was 1 medium sized bar and then a few small vans selling prosecco. There was limited portaloos, I'd probably say about 10 and considering the event was sold out I would have thought they'd have put on more than that. There was one room with live music and the band was good but hard to enjoy after waiting in a queue for an hour and realising how long we would have to wait for a drink and for the toilet once we'd drank the drink. We stayed for approximately 10 minutes. A real shame.

We came last year but this year I felt the festival was over sold. There too many people in a small space which in turn caused a horrible atmosphere.

Review of Solis Street Party & Beer Festival

Over sold event, people queuing for over an hour to get in even though they had a tick*t. 15 toilets for 3000 people resulted in hundreds queuing for hours just to have a wee! Only 2 small food stalls and 2 world beers and no rum in the rum punch. It was advertised as a steeet party and beer festival but they ran out of beer and the 'street' was extremely small causing total chaos with too many people. on it. Wasn't allowed to take photos., the list goes on......... An ill thought out and badly managed event. They deleted over 150 negative comments/complaints off social media and haven't issued a statement of apology, refunds or even acknowledged everyone's complaints. Myself and 3000 others were mis-sold this event through false advertising. the whole thing was absolute shambles. It had the makings of a great event ruined by greedy organisers resulting in a lack of facilities. and no customer service or remorse has been offered. Not sure that many people was even legal?? Would never attend another event and will not recommend anyone attend either. They should man up, apologise and put things right for the next one so people don't feel ripped off.

The music was good and felt to be a good vibe but it was so poorly organised. Queues everywhere but you shouldn't be waiting 45 minutes for the toilet! Blokes were peeing everywhere, it felt like there would be a river flowing at one point. People were arguing in the queues, people cutting lines, just agitation everywhere. Final straw was when they told us the bar had run out of cider, at 5pm so we left. Shame really. Suppose they got my money beforehand so doesn't bother the organisers.

Such a good concept but really badly organised - for a food and beer festival there wasn't much food or beer! Also, they misjudged how many toilets they'd need and after waiting over half an hour to use a toilet (which didn't have an in and out system) we ended up leaving - the time we spent there was spent queuing to get in, queuing to get a drink, and queuing for the toilet - sadly, this was not worth the tick*t price at all!

Your bar was inside, which had a queue just to queue up for it. You should of had your bars outside, and food inside.... then again, you shouldn't have had the event at that venue anyways. It was crammed, annoying with the cobbles for people in high heals, some of your speakers were down or busted. You charge a stupid amount for a slice of pizza... like ONE SLICE. LoL. You should keep this event as a rooftop party and ONLY A ROOFTOP PARTY. The venue was utter crap, I'm sorry. It's cheap to get in sure... but it wasn't worth it when after 2 c**ktails my friends and all just left.

Rooftop party, or open space venue with less queues, especially to get drinks - or don't bother making another event next year.

Too many tick*ts were sold for this event. I attended it for my birthday and when we arrived there was a good amount of people there. However hundreds more kept arriving and being let in even after 4pm which was supposedly the cut off time for entry. There was not enough toilets and not enough food and drink stands for the huge volume of people there which left us standing in queues for well over 40 minutes for the toilet and over half and hour to get a drink. The event either needs to be held at a bigger venue with more toilets, and stalls or the number of tick*ts sold should be reduced dramatically! I was really looking forward to celebrating my birthday here but due to not being able to get a drink or go to the toilet, we left at 5pm.

Just plain naff, and a waste of money. Queued 30mins to get in then queued another 30mins to get a warm cider poured into a plastic cup by a rude, uninterested bar man with no manners. Far too small a venue for the amount of people they allowed in. Not enough toilets, we left below even attempting to join that line. Poor selection of food and drink options. Overpriced and I will not be attending another Solis party in a hurry.

Absolute waste of money. Overcrowded and unorganised. Waiting to enter the venue with tick*t and non tick*t holders in a ridiculously long queue, there was no separation. Rude bouncers when you've told them people are pushing in. 25 minute wait at the bar - couldn't be bothered waiting any longer for a drink. Well over a thousand people and a handful of toilets - clever. Should have been over a couple of days like the last event, which was amazing. Wasn't what I expected at all this time, clearly all about the money. Will not be returning to any solis event again.

We got there early so the queue to get in wasn't too bad and we're pleased with the increased security checks at the gate. However, once inside, we were confused about the fact that there were only 2 food stalls selling pizza and burgers because the event advertised food from around the world. We opted for a burger which we had to wait 10 minutes for but we couldn't eat it in the end because it was very undercooked. The queue for the toilets was ridiculous, people were buying drinks and getting straight in the queue for the loos, it was literally a hundred people long at 1 point. The "beer festival" was nowhere to be seen either, just a couple of places selling mediocre beers that can be purchased in most bars. We left after an hour and at that point the queue to get in was probably an hour long as well. Luckily the tick*ts were only 5 but I definitely won't be back.

DISAPPOINTING

Review of Solis Street Party & Beer Festival

Completely disappointing. Tick*ts were expensive however we were willing to pay due to the uniqueness of the venue. The event was crowded and there was only 10-15 toilets meaning people were queuing for a ridiculous amount of time. Behind where the DJ was, was the remaining Corrie set. when taking a picture a security guard appeared to go insane saying no pictures were allowed, however the event was mark*ted as being @ Granada studios, some would say the main appeal was going to party at the coronation street set so you would assume you could take pictures. Also there were no signs saying you couldn't take pictures so the reaction from the security guard when taking them was completely uncalled for.

Music was good but very bad organisation with queues and also the whole picture was annoying. We left after an hour and a half as we needed the toilet and couldn't keep queuing. Would not go to one of their events again.

Farce! Got there at 15:45 to find a queue back as far as the MOSI only to come back just after 17:00 to be told box office had gone home and they weren't letting anyone else in....it was supposed to be on until 22:00!! So essentially 5 tick*ts booked well in advance that weren't worth the paper they were printed on! Trading Standards field day!

Terrible, overpriced event. There was nothing included in the entry fee and the organisers were clearly more interested in making money than a fun event. There was too many people and we had to queue a long time for drinks which were overpriced and nothing special with others pushing in. A large line of loos next to a couple of food stores. Some lads who had paid for tick*ts were collecting jugs off the floor as they were told the bar had run out and they had to collect them if they wanted a pitcher. We left after 90mins, grabbed food elsewhere and ended up at the Oast House in Spinningfields with a live band. Far better. I'd quite like a full refund on a terribly organised event.

It was a long queu for everything, from getting inside the event around 20min, for a beer around 15min, for toilets 15min. There was not cash maching or the chance to pay with card. The music was two scenarios, a band inside the building and a dj that didn't know how to change from one song to another. To finish with it the ppl in there was tacky.

Not enough toilets, nowhere to sit and queue to get in was two and half hours and very expensive for drinks

Awful event. I wouldn't mind but the event organisers just need to hold their hands up and say "guys, we messed up, we have taken your comments on board and we shall try and act on them all next time".
Instead, the constructive cirisiscm left by the public on their Facebook page has been deleted. It's rude. The lady security guard also ruined the event for me. I felt she was so rude to one of the lads in our group of friends. We were not denying we had taken a photo but we do not need to be shouted at, just ask us politely not to take photos. Queues were TERRIBLE. I wouldn't even waste my money on the next and I was one of lucky ones that paid a fiver.

Upon entry the atmosphere was exciting; music playing, the smell of food trucks, lots of excited people ready for the bank holiday celebrations. After further inspection of the venue it turned out to be way to small/compact for the number of people there. Every food truck and bar had a Que of at least a 15/20 minute wait, there was even a Que to enter the inside space. This could therefore lead you to believe there were either too many people in the venue or not enough bars and food trucks. Another point to add, it seems like the person in charge of tick*t sales did not enjoy spending time with the person in charge of organising the toilets; as there were limited toilets compared to the number of tick*ts sold. The Que for said toilets was not a at all appealing, and thus caused the complaining of many passers by.
If you attempt another street party, I suggest finding a larger venue, including more bars and food trucks, add more toilets, and finally, don't over sell! I'm sure you made a hefty profit, but I believe the saying is quality not quantity.
Thank you, and I hope you take constructive critism well.

Choas. Qued over half an hour to get in. Went to find a bar, queued up for a little bit before realising there was no beer. Went into the hall passing a queue of over 100 people for 9ish toilets 👍🏻 Joined another queue for a bar only to be told he's not serving beer, no signs to let customers know this before waiting around half an hour again.
On our way out we passed 2 very average looking tents selling pizza and burgers. "Beer festival" the whole thing was falsely advertised. There should be refunds and an apology however people's justified complaints were deleted from their Facebook page so I don't expect that'll happen. Solis are nothing short of con artists.

Event was terribly organised. Queues were around the corner. Once we got to the front, we were told it was 1 in 1 out even though we had tick*ts. After seeing a huge amount of people leave, and not being let in. We decided to leave with a mass crowd doing the same thing. With most people actually managing to get in saying that after queuing for hours to get in, they just had to queue once again for either a drink or the toilet.
If possible I would want to find out if I can get my money back.

MASSIVE Disappointment would have to be an understatement...... totally disorganized had to spend half my time away from my friends queuing for the toilets... 15 or maybe 12 toilets to over 3,000 people that are all drinking probably was a massive mistake loads of people left because they just couldn't be bothered anymore..... the que for the drinks were also stupidly long... about 10 staff inside was a joke..... question for at least 45 mins so at this point we had to buy 3 drinks each just to make the wait worth it... then no seats or tables...... the back to the toilet by this point we left as we felt it was only going to get worse.... which it did as when we left there was a couple of 100 people still going in...... couldn't even enjoy the day so much pissing about.... waste of time would never go again

The event was awful- the queues for the food, drink and more importantly toilets were so long. 15 toilets for thousands of people and they just kept letting more and more in. They seemed to just want to pile people in to the max without thinking about the place being too full. 5-6 a pint.
Plus the organisers deleted all negative comments (there were many) from the Facebook group and just left positive ones!
Annoyed they were able to earn so much money for doing so little.

It was awful, so many queues. not enough provision for the amount of people that you let into the event. You should have increased prices and let less people in. we left after an hour as couldn't stand it anymore.

WORST EVENT I HAVE EVER EVER BEEN TOO!!!

Overall rating: 1

The solis was an absolute shambles and pisstake!!! Me and a big group of friends were there for my boyfriends birthday, expecting a great day and had all been looking forward to it! But it was literally the worst managed event and waste of money I have ever been too! I was starving and hadn't eaten as I was expecting a huge variety of food trucks, imagine my disappointment when there were only two food stalls... 6 pound for one bloody slice of pizza and a burger stand. Where the hell was the variety of culture that had been promised?? My friend had also brought a brownie in her bag which security would not let her take in and eat... is that a joke, you offer hardly any food and confiscate a brownie! How was that brownie and problem and what was she expected to eat with only a choice of two s**tty stalls? Advertising of it being a 'beer festival' also a joke. There was only about three drink stands with 30 minute queues, and everyone's too scared to buy a drink because they then knew they'd have to queue the 40 minutes for a toilet!!!? 15 portaloos for 2000 people, absolutely disgusting. Is that literally even legal??? The event realistically should have only sold about 500 tick*ts because they clearly had no amenities to cater for any more people. Where can I get a refund because it was an irresponsibly mark*ted event and a waste of time. We left after one hour (40 minutes of which were spent queueing) and had a much better time drinking on deansgate where drinks weren't overpriced and I could actually have a pee! Also had to get a subway to eat since I was starved with the lack and offer of food. Never going to a solis event again!!

2 words - Absolute Joke! Firstly upon arrival the security man said we all needed ID to get in.....I'm 39! The youngest of the group was 28, but he said we may not be able to get in if no ID, if ID was required this have been communicated to us before to bring which would have been no problem, luckily we got in! We arrived about 2pm, so it was just starting off, got our drinks and sat down, then it started to get busier and busier. We left after 2 hours because of the queues, I have never in my life seen a queue for the toilets as long as what they had there, it must have been around 100 deep for the toilet!! There was 20 toilets for the whole event! The queues for the bars were getting just as bad. I felt it was very badly organised, I would think twice about going to another Solis event, I have messaged them on face-book with no reply!! I think they should offer refunds I would have loved to have stayed but we just couldn't because of how busy it had got and mainly the queue for the toilet! Also we were charged 5.50 for a thin slice of pizza.....rip off! :(

I never got to enter the street party, we arrived at 3:30 thinking we had plenty of time to enter before 4pm, but the queue was on 3 sides of the block and wasn't moving. it was a mix of tick*ts and non tick*ts, there should of been 2 queues in my opinion. we had people with us that had just completed the 10k run and needed to get in, sit down and chill out. we left and went to Barca instead.

Poorly organised - not enough toilets or bars. Spent most of the time queuing. Only two food stalls, and a poor selection of drinks. And then they deleted the negative reviews on the Facebook page , which I find really wrong. Will not be attending a solis event again.

Absolutely shocking, spent 2 hours there where I was either in the queue for the toilet or a drink. It seemed really poorly organised and no way near enough toilets or bars for the amount of people there. Total waste of money and time. I got tick*ts for 10 each which was a rip of for the event which was shockingly bad! The entire thing was a joke.

Tick*ts massively oversold. Queued for an hour and 15 to get in. Once inside had to queue almost half an hour for the toilet. So busy. But then by about 7pm was empty as most people had left, probably to go somewhere they could actually get served and didn't have to wait half an hour to use the bathroom.

Really bad experience, didn't even get to go in. Clearly the company had sold way too ticked for the capacity of the place. Think solis need to either give a lot of the customer ls refunds for those who didn't even use their tick*ts or do something.

A great location that wasn't utilised well. Too many people were allowed in. Food was cold and a complete and utter rip off. Only two choices of food as well. Beer was usual sort of price, but more choice again required. Not enough toilets, even when they open up more. Just felt like a couple of rich kids had some money to throw a big party and look cool in the Manchester scene. They failed. If you want to experience something like this and it be amazing, go to Sheffield and Peddler. Plenty of drink to choose from, plenty of food to choose from, great location well utilised. Oh, and it's not a rip off.
Don't go to Solis. Just have an awesome night out in Manchester. Plenty of food and drink to choose from out there.

There were massive queues for literally everything. I don't mind queueing but when you're facing a half hour wait to do anything it's not worth the tick*t price, let alone all the food an drink costs. Poorly planned out, far too many tick*ts sold for the size of the venue, and opened over an hour late.
