Cashless technology provider Tappit has announced a new partnership with grassroots music festival Leopallooza, and appointed two new senior members of staff.

Now in its 13th year, Leopallooza bills itself as ‘the greatest house party, in a field’ and takes place in Cornwall. It expects 5,000 attendees this year.

The festival has a 0% landfill policy and recycles 90% of its waste, with the rest being converted into fuel pellets. Its website also says it was the first festival in the UK to ban single use plastic drinking cups.

Leopallooza will now offer festival attendees a cashless experience with spending tied to their personal RFID wristband. This will help provide faster queues and secure transactions.

Tappit will also be empowering the festival’s organisers with access to valuable data on attendee behaviours, providing actionable insights on how to improve the customer experience throughout the three-day event.

As well as the partnership, Tappit has announced two appointments. Gavin Barnard joins as director of business development for UK & Europe, while Craig Poskitt joins as head of sales in UK & Europe.

The pair will work together closely and be responsible for growing the company’s expanding partnership network across the UK and Europe.
