Standon Calling has appointed Weezevent as its new cashless provider.

Taking place July 28-29, the 15,000 capacity Hertfordshire festival has been a cashless event for six years.

Alex Trenchard, festival director at Standon Calling, commented: “We are very much looking forward to continuing our cashless journey with Weezevent. We’ve been impressed with their technology and as a festival with a significant family presence, Weezevent’s ability to operate multiple wristbands off one email address and bank account offers significant customer service benefits.

“Over the last two years, we have also seen a significant growth in customers topping up their RFID accounts via their phones. For the first time this year, we will have a festival app, powered by Greencopper, whose Weezevent integration will make it much easier for customers to check their balances and top up.”

Olly Goddard, UK manager at Weezevent, added: “Standon are the festival experts when it comes to RFID and cashless technology. Their decision to become our first festival partner in the UK is an endorsement of our solution and reflects our intention to expand here in the UK as we have done so in France. I’ve always loved Standon and am really looking forward to working with Alex and his team.”
