iFEST – improved Festival Experience with wearable Sensor Technology


Goal of the iFEST project is to improve the digital experience of large events, such as music festivals, by developing a new generation of festival bracelets. These wearable devices will be provided with advanced communication and sensor capabilities, which allow for a variety of integrated systems and services.

Aside from the design of a new generation festival bracelet and the supporting infrastructure, several use cases will be developed within the iFEST project. This includes general festival management methods, access control and security management, and the creation of an enriched festival experience for visitors.

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/01/2015 - 31/12/2016.
