Sónar is Going Cashless

Glownet will be partnering with Sónar on 18 to 20 June in Barcelona to provide their festival-goers with a completely cashless festival made possible by our RFID technology.

Since its induction in 1994, Sónar has been on the cutting edge of both music and technology. This is why we’re excited that they’ve trusted Glownet to provide cashless RFID solutions and take their festival experience to new heights. We will be partnering with them at both the day and night events.

Our cashless RFID system offers an array of benefits to the festival and festival-goers. Festival-goers will benefit from reduced queues, faster service across all bars and vendors, and peace of mind by being able to wear and safely keep track of their wallets. The festival will experience a higher level of security by cutting down on cash points and concentrating them at centralised top-up stations where guests can add credit to their wristbands. Since Glownet will be servicing the entire festival, festival-goers will be able to use any credit topped-up during the day at the night portion as well. At the end of the event, Glownet enables promotors to provide festival-goers with refunds for any remaining credits, an offering which is lacking in other festival currencies like tickets and tokens.

We are thrilled to contribute our solutions to Sónar’s long-standing record of innovation, as it continues to blaze ahead of the music festival industry.
