reduced waiting times at the entrances and the gastronomy stands, security concerning imitation and theft, cashless payments through an integrated cash system – with the implementation of the RFID-wristbands there were a lot of ambitious goals. Now we have to stop this project.
The reason for that: The new technology, that should have been applied the first time in Germany at Hurricane Festival, was not able to meet our expectations.
All guests who have already received their wristbands with RFID-chip via mail have to go to the luggage inspection at their preferred camping areas. Guests, who don’t have a wristband but are already in possession of a ticket, get a valid wristband at the entrance stations. Guests who have already transferred money to their accounts get their amount paid back at the service points on site.
Amounts that are not picked up at the service points, will be transferred to the related banking account, from that the transformation was made.
Thanks for your appreciation!
No RFID-technology at Hurricane Festival 2012!
