Music festivals are using RFID for
Hot summer and the music festival is starting. There is a
huge crowd waiting to get in. How to make access easier and
smoother and most of all safer. Big crowds usually cause stress and
pushing and pulling. Ensuring a smooth and fast access to the
festival area will minimize all problems.
RFID offers a fast solution for access. We have some examples in
the world, for example Rock Werchter that started on Wednesday and the
festival lasts for four whole days. Access control and crowd
counting are not the only things done with RFID at the festival.
Also the crowd gets to enjoy the benefits: They can link what
specific band they are visiting to their facebook and share with
their friends their whereabouts, get vouchers for FreeBee making
their rock festival experience that much more social and FUN with
the help of RFID.
We hope you enjoy your music festivals safely this summer!
A smooth transition from the queue to the festival area to
enjoy the music = RFID access control.
That's all folks - for this week. More news next week!
