The organizers of the festival approached UK-based ID&C to help boost the security of the festival with an RFID-based control system to replace standard wristbands, which need to be checked by eye and can feasibly be swapped from person to person to allow guests illegal entry. The wristbands contained the ticket details of each customer, encrypted with a 16-digit ID, and a gate system was set up to allow only one person with one wristband in or out at a time. If the RFID chip was compromised or the system detected an attempt at more than one entry, a red light was displayed and admission rejected. If customers had linked their wristbands to their Facebook account at registration, then once inside they could also tap the bands at stations around the site to update friends both at the festival and at home with details of the stage they were at and the act performing.
