Electric Castle festival going cashless for 2016

Romanian electronic music festival Electric Castle will partner with Intellitix this summer to provide its 100,000 visitors with RFID wristbands.

The wristbands will function as ‘digital wallets’ for guests to make purchases and will allow them to quickly and securely enter the camping sites and pass through the event gates.

Intellitix CEO Serge Grimaux said: “It is always exciting to deploy our services for the first time in a new country. Romania will be the 18th border we cross, and what better way to introduce our solutions than at the Electric Castle Festival; it’s a magical event.

“Its rate of growth over the past few years seems to be superior to ours, and this is not something we have encountered often. We are truly looking forward to bringing a fully cashless RFID environment to all these fans.”

Electric Castle takes place on 14-17 July at Bánffy Castle in Romania.
