UK: Standon Calling has enlisted Weezevent as the cashless provider for its upcoming edition, set to take place from July 25 – 28 in Hertfordshire.
The 15,000-capacity festival will be headlined by Rag’n’Bone Man, Wolf Alice, and Nile Rogers & Chic.
Festival Director, Alex Trenchard, commented: “We are very much looking forward to continuing our cashless journey with Weezevent. We’ve been impressed with their technology, and as a festival with a significant family presence, Weezevent’s ability to operate multiple wristbands off one email address and bank account offers significant customer service benefits. Over the last two years, we have also seen a significant growth in customers topping up their RFID accounts via their phones. For the first time this year, we will have a festival app, powered by Greencopper, whose Weezevent integration will make it much easier for customers to check their balances and top up.”
The move to Weezevent follows the recent appointment of Olly Goddard as the company’s UK Country Manager. Goddard said of the news: “Standon are the festival experts when it comes to RFID and cashless technology. Their decision to become our first festival partner in the UK is an endorsement of our solution and reflects our intention to expand here in the UK as we have done so in France. I’ve always loved Standon and am really looking forward to working with Alex and his team.”
