Our first Festival
Scripin has just come back from their first Festival! Whoop Whoop!
We were at BardFest 2015, which is in Suffolk. It is over a 2-day period (Friday 10th – Saturday11th), which finishes at 12pm each night, with live performances from local bands, real ales and ciders from the surrounding area. Hog roasts and all manner of BBQ food. It is a family festival so it caters for children/families as well. Over the course of the 2 days BardFest had 2,400 festivalgoers through its gates.
We had an amazing couple of days, with superb results. The people of Suffolk/BardFest were unbelievably supportive and enthusiastic about the app.
We had all types people using the app; from kids all the way to 50+ it really was great to see the app in action.
Scripin Events was tasked with streaming the photos that the festivalgoers were taking and then outputting them on the HD TV’s and projectors around BardFest. This was the first time Scripin Events was tested and it was a great success, not only for us but the enjoyment of the festivalgoers themselves as well the organisers seeing the impact the images across the screens had. All ages loved seeing themselves up on the big screens – one Scripin fan commented ‘Look I’m famous!’ It was really pleasing to see that all the hard work we have done come to fruition, and that the BardFest community really enjoyed it too.
We learnt a lot from BardFest; feedback from the BardFest community, new opportunities from potential clients, key metrics, data analysis, and how the Comms works best. All things we can build on and better understand these types of events and only make our app/product stronger.
I would just like to thank the wonderful people of Suffolk and all the BardFest team for making the weekend the perfect experience for us. It was awesome to be a part of and to meet some brilliant people too.
Thank you BardFest 2015, we are looking forward to 2016!
