The past three years the SummerDays Festival in Arbon was completely cashless: the cashless payment system by Swisscom Event & Media Solutions was rolled out across the entire festival site. Visitors were able to benefit from shorter waiting times, improved security and full transparency.
All catering facilities, food and drink stands, bars, non-food stands, merchandising stalls and sales outlets on site were fitted with a cashless payment system.
Around 24,000 visitors and 1,000 volunteers used their festival card with integrated memory chip to make cashless payments. Festivalgoers were free to charge their cards with the desired amount at cash points dotted around the site.
