The festival season for 2015 has been and gone, and as winter hits us full throttle, we’ve just got the memories to look back on. It was a brilliant year for summer festivals – with people attending and enjoying a whole variety of music all over the country.
As a company who specialises in creating customised lanyards, we’re already looking forward to next summer. Lanyards are a huge part of festivals – they useful and used for several different reasons.
Used to Gain Entry
The main way in which lanyards were used during the festival season was as a substitute for tickets. Whilst most festivals still issued tickets to begin with – these were quickly swapped for lanyards once at the festival.
The reason for why lanyards are preferred at festivals is because they can be easily worn. Tickets are easily dropped or lost out of pockets – lanyards can be safely worn around the neck.
Festivals employ a lot of staff. Whether these are paid staff or volunteers – there needs to be enough people to keep everything under control and make sure that everyone is where they should be. They are also responsible for making sure that festival goers are behaving themselves, such as not bringing alcohol into the arena.
To make their authority more obvious to everyone, staff and volunteers are issued lanyards that clearly make it known that they are staff. This makes it easier for people to find a member of staff if they have a problem or a question.
For the VIPs
Festivals are often frequented by VIPs – celebrities and other important people. This means that they often don’t want to watch the music with the other festival goers – to avoid getting swamped whilst having a good time.
This is why they are often issued with special passes that get them into secret and private areas of the festival – in the form of a lanyard. This is definitely beneficial for the guests they bring who aren’t as easily identified.
Make custom lanyards a part of your next event – you’ll definitely see the benefits.
