Brief summary of the results

  • Hybrid app, which the organizer can use to provide festival visitors with festival information and safety instructions via push notification.

The customer

Presented for People GmbH / 4 plus 1 Konzerte GmbH are the organisers of the two largest music festivals in Saarland. The Rocco del Schlacko, which has been sold out for years, attracts over 24,000 music enthusiasts from all over Germany and the surrounding area to the quiet town of Püttlingen every year, where world-class national and international rock and pop bands gather. The Electromagnetic - awarded as "Europe's best new festival 2012" - transforms the World Cultural Heritage site "Völklinger Hütte" every year with over 10,000 visitors and hip electronic music into a total work of art.

The challenge

With tens of thousands of festival visitors every year, Presented for People GmbH / 4 plus 1 GmbH were looking for a modern and fast way to inform festival visitors. App users should not only be able to call up event information via various functions. Also and especially in dangerous situations, the app should become a central component of the security concept if, for example, the festival grounds have to be cleared due to a storm. The app must therefore be platform-independent and at best usable on devices with limited resources.

The solution

Since Presented for People GmbH / 4 plus 1 Konzerte GmbH organizes various festivals with different target groups, we built an app that has its own database and design depending on the festival. However, the underlying technical basis remains the same. This not only accelerates the development process, but also saves costs. By using the slim couchDB/pouchDB, the synchronization between the databases works very fast and easy. We used cordova and ionic to make the hybrid app usable on iOS and Android. The organizer can now easily provide visitors with all information about artists, stages, site plans and other important event information in the look and feel of the festival.
we solved it.
