Cashless Payment for Festivals
No cash, sorry! This was the motto for many music festivals worldwide especially in 2015 when open airs like Coachella, The Isle Of Wight or Melt! invented RFID. Lines at entrances moved faster, revenues increased and the number of cash and card thefts reduced. The benefits seemed to be positive for everyone. But technical problems and high costs stopped that euphoria, and promoters got back to cash-only this year. So is cashless payment dead and cash still the king? Or does it just need a bit more time for development or new technology?
