The Pitch

Event management can be a headache: thousands of attendees to communicate with alongside substantial operational overhead; plus any number of disasters just waiting to happen. So, when the creators of Festival App pitched us their idea for a user-centric app augmenting the festival experience through mobile ticket scanning, live notifications, GPS-location features and NFC technology – we were intrigued.

But with just 30 days to pull the Alpha version together, we also had to get our skates on to:

Create the most intuitive, easy-on-the-eye festival app on the market.
Enrich the live experience through social integrations, a GPS tool to locate friends, plus emergency notifications for weather updates, security threats, etc.
Leverage the phone’s camera for ticket scanning, and NFC technology to scan festival chips.
Build the app using AngularJS 5, implementing the latest Material Design.

The Process

With just thirty days to build a working product, we hit the ground running. After a short design sprint, we planned the necessary features which we released in two phases. We worked closely with the client to pinpoint the UX and UI based on Material Design elements, ensuring every requested feature made the final cut.

We implemented NFC and QR code scanners to accommodate the full festival experience.
We built the home screen to allow personalized notifications as well as a ‘create your own festival schedule’ feature.
We designed the app around social media to create a unified, sticky experience.
We implemented the schematic for emergency notifications.
We included a ‘Find My Friends’ feature built on the Google Maps API.

The Result

Despite the time constraints, we delivered a standout app which has been well-received across the board. Event organizers appreciate the streamlined nature of the ticket scanning process, while attendees love the social elements we’ve introduced. The app’s debut was on 5th July - with a host of world-class festivals signed up to roll it out at their events as well.

Leading festivals across the world have chosen Festival App to both simplify event management and enhance the live experience.
Initial customer feedback has been resoundingly positive.
The app debuted on the 5th July before full rollout - summer 2018.
