Electric Castle was the first festival to integrate online payment for auto top-up and refund on RFID bracelets which were used as part of their cashless systems and entrance. Their use of technology was also spread throughout the festival, integrating technology in the entertainment offered as well as through their staff. A robotic arm was considered as one of the festival’s bartenders, creating over 1200 cocktails.
Interactive installations and sustainable solutions
The festival had its own Tech World, a place where one of their partners created a world of new technologies filled with audio video and sensorial technologies. Art installations used projection mapping and sound installations in collaboration with international artists, to create interactive installations such as 3D domes or dancing areas. More than 600 sqm of LED and 140 beams and lights were used to create the biggest light and video experience on a stage in Eastern Europe.
Besides having a strong focus on emerging technology and tailoring its experiences around art installations which enrich the audience’s experience, the Electric Castle Festival prides itself in contributing to the environment by recycling 67% of its generated waste, while their RFID payment system ensures cashless payment, also reducing paper waste.
Winners will be celebrated during the XLIVE Conference held at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas on Tuesday, December 12, 2017.
Electric Castle is a unique festival experience that takes place on the amazing domain of Banffy Castle, near Cluj-Napoca, in Transylvania.
