Hellfest: staggering numbers for an unconventional event!

Hellfest needs no introduction, this annual High Mass gathers more than 200,000 heavy metal music fans in the quiet town of Clisson, France.

In action:
  • +200 000 festivalgoers.
  • 1 400 devices on the ground.
  • 1 500 scans per hour per queue.
  • 50 000 3-day passes sold in 1.5 hrs.

200,000+ festivalgoers for 3 days

This means wel­com­ing more than 70,000 fes­ti­val­go­ers each day. Hellfest trusts Weezevent to run its cash­less pay­ment sys­tem and check-in the gen­er­al audi­ence as well as VIPs!


1,500+ scans per hour per queue

Every fes­ti­val­go­er with a wrist­band can top-up his/her account online to avoid queue­ing on site, alter­na­tive­ly there are top-up kiosks at the fes­ti­val. This wrist­band also enables the fes­ti­val­go­er to access the fes­ti­val, sim­ply by scan­ning the chip inside the wrist­band at one of the Access Box kiosks. Check­ing-in only takes a few sec­onds.

1,400+ devices on the ground

Spread across four areas over 50+ acres, the fes­ti­val requires a sol­id and reli­able tech solu­tion. The 4,000 peo­ple on staff for the fes­ti­val start­ed using the devices right away to accept cash­less pay­ments, top-ups at kiosks and scan tick­ets and wrist­bands. Deploy­ment and train­ing were quick and effi­cient thanks to the Weezevent team.

400,000+ litres of beer consumed

This amount required opti­mised man­age­ment of the flow of peo­ple at bars and food & drinks areas. Sim­pli­fied pay­ments through our cash­less sys­tem enabled fes­ti­val­go­ers to make the most of the fes­ti­val thanks to short queues and a secure pay­ment sys­tem. Mean­while, the teams of vol­un­teers had a sim­ple and quick soft­ware that allowed them to place orders direct­ly on the devices.

Sim­i­lar­ly, at kiosks, pay­ment ter­mi­nals con­nect­ed to our cash­less sys­tem increased the safe­ty of trans­ac­tions and allowed for eas­i­er book­keep­ing.
