“Bestival has always been about escapism and queuing doesn’t really make that any easier. We think Tappit’s wristbands can be a big part of solving that, reducing queues and hassles for festival-goers. They also give us the sort of real-time data insights that can help us with a lot of things like crowd management. We eventually foresee it all going totally cashless, which will make the whole Bestival experience even more easy going for everyone.”
