Mojo Barriers unveiled its new access control system, the Gatekeeper 2.0, at Belgium’s Graspop Festival, combining a secure turnstile entrance with Playpass integrated scanning capabilities.
Eighteen Gatekeepers contained the ingress and egress of the 45,000 capacity crowd at Belgium’s ‘hardest rock festival’, headlined by Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden and Slipknot.
Belgium-based Playpass, which provided RFID wristbands to festivalgoers, fitted scanners to the kit, offering complete entrance control and instant access to data on audience movement and interests across the three-day event.
“The organisers of this year’s Graspop said that the crowd flow was one of the fastest of any year,” David De Wever, CEO at Playpass, told this magazine.
“The Gatekeeper ties in incredibly well with our offering. Without it, people can forget to scan in and out whereas this creates a solid barrier ensuring access is completely controlled and data is always correct. Events have to grow into using this technology. It is the future and the benefits are huge.”
