Wild Paths, the independent conference and music festival celebrating the creative music scene in Norwich, recently partnered with Gigseekr to create a ‘platform takeover’ for their 2022 edition, so that audiences could access the timetable of events across the five days. Gigseekr’s App gave Wildpaths a fully branded, dedicated platform carrying all of the festival’s content. Festival attendees experienced seamless branding into the schedule, which organisers could keep updated with live information
Wild Paths Organiser Ben Street commented:
“We’re really delighted to be working with GigSeekr and the support from their team has been excellent. The App takeover has been brilliant and gave us a level of technology we would not have been able to afford ourselves. In particular the gig scheduler was so easy to use and meant our audience didn’t miss any of their favourite acts.”
Gigseekr’s customisable takeover app allows features to be added or removed depending on each festival’s requirements. Some of these features include: festival schedule, venue capacity warnings, on stage now/next, a ‘clash’ planner, set time notifications and colour schemes.
Gavin Barnard, Gigseekr Chief Relations Officer explains:
“It’s been a great weekend with Wild Paths Festival in Norwich, continuing our work with some fantastic independent UK festivals. We are extending this free ‘Festival Takeover’ service into 2023, to support the industry through these difficult times.
“Our focus is always on the users. The ‘takeover’ means we can give the festival a direct link to attendees, with ‘live’ information updates, as changes happen in the moment, also, making the app easy to use and navigate, without people having to sign up or see annoying adverts everywhere.”
The relationship between the bands and fans now extends after the festival, as people can connect with the upcoming artists they like and continue to be alerted for future live shows.
