Weezevent and Standon Calling partner for 2019 to deliver a fully cashless operation to thousands of festival goers

This week sees our team partner with Standon Calling festival from 25th-28th July. The family friendly event attracts up to 15,000 attendees each day and is headlined by Rag’n’Bone Man, Wolf Alice, and Nile Rodgers & Chic. Located in the Hertford­shire, Standon Calling is an innov­ation pioneer in cashless technology and RFID wrist­bands.

It was one of the first festivals to use a cashless system in the UK in 2013. The festival previ­ously worked with two different cashless providers, but have moved to Weezevent in order to take advantage of our unique cashless solution. As an exper­i­enced tech company we offer an access control system that is independent from the internet and has been used by over 400 festivals and events across Europe since 2015. Standon Calling is leading a family-friendly festival that wanted to give families more control and simplicity regarding their cashless accounts. Thanks to our technology, access and buying rights can be set depending on the age of the attendees through RFID micro­chips attached to cashless wrist­bands.

On the practical side, all of the 180 staff at bars, restaurants, and independent traders operating at Standon Calling only use our cashless system. Green­copper, our mobile partner, also let festival-goers who download the Standon Calling app create and top-up their cashless account in seconds.standon-calling-greencopper-weezevent

A UK led Weezevent team of 8 is also on site to deploy and supervise the access control and cashless system of the festival.
