RFID Access Control Takes Center Stage This Busy June Weekend

EDC Las Vegas

Intellitix just wrapped up another festival-filled weekend over June 18-21, 2015 with five major music festival deployments ranging from the best in heavy metal, rock, punk, pop, EDM, and country music. A total of 860,000 music lovers flowed through Intellitix’s access control platform this weekend alone, validating RFID-enabled wristbands at 1/10th of a second. Intellitix’s advanced access control technology ensured ticket fraud and pass-backs were entirely eliminated, securing the event sites.

Here’s an overview of the festivals this weekend:

Amnesia Rock Fest: June 18-21, 2015

Celebrating it’s 10th birthday this year, Amnesia brought on big rock, metal, punk headliners including System of a Down, Deftones, Slayer, Linkin Park, and Rancid to name a few. The small rural town of Montebello, Quebec (with 900 local residents) attracted over 200,000 visitors to head bang and mosh till the lights went out. Founder Alex Martel started the festival at the mere age of 17! Rock on! http://amnesiarockfest.com

Firefly Music Festival: June 18-21, 2015

Set among the lush Woodlands in Dover, Delaware, the fourth annual Firefly Music Festival featured an eclectic line-up including Paul McCartney, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki and The Killers. Despite the severe lightning storm on Saturday night, concert-goers remained optimistic and partied hard the following day. http://fireflyfestival.com

Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas: June 19-21, 2015

EDC Las Vegas is the largest multi-day music festival in North America with over 400,000 EDM fans throughout the three-day weekend. Extreme heat wave aside, EDC took EDM lovers to new heights with full-scale carnival rides, neon dreamscapes, walkabout performers, and impressive pyrotechnics. Even Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad couldn’t keep away from the festivities and shouted the famous “Say my name” catchphrase on stage for Above and Beyond’s performance of their song “Walter White”. http://lasvegas.electricdaisycarnival.com

Hellfest: June 19-21, 2015

Hellfest marked the first event in France to deploy Intellitix’s RFID platform for access control. The sold-out, three-day heavy metal music festival boasted an aggressive line-up including Slipknot, KoRn, Marilyn Manson, Judas Priest, Alice Cooper and ZZ Top. Hardcore fans unleashed their angst on the battlefields outside the town of Clisson. http://www.hellfest.fr/en/

Chicago’s inaugural multi-day, multi-stage country music festival blew attendees away with featured performances from Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line despite the thunderstorm on Saturday night.
