Marisa Freund's insight:

This article talks about Taylor Swift's "Red" tour across the United States. I think that this tour is a big thing for Taylor Swift because she has 58 dates, in 29 states. Also, there is going to be a lot of production that goes on every night before the show.

RFID Wristband: About The Latest In Music Festival Technology At Bonnaroo, Bamboozle, Coachella And More

RFID Wristband: About The Latest In Music Festival Technology At Bonnaroo, Bamboozle, Coachella And More | Touring | Scoop.it

The best part of this new technology is the ability to pay for things through a pre-funded bracelet, eliminating the need to carry cash or CC.  Sweet! ~ Tonia

 

Music festival season is in full swing, and while it is pretty obvious how much work goes into organizing the event and setting up the stages, something you don't think about are the tickets.

Marisa Freund's insight:

I found this article very interesting and I think that the RFID wristbands are possibly the best idea ever. These wristbands allow you to purchase your tickets, and add money to the wristband so you do not have to worry about losing your credit card or cash while you are walking around.

I found this article to be a very interesting read and think that RFID wristband technology is the wave of the future. These wristabands are brilliant! It is amazing that you are able to cut down the time it takes to get into a festival and you can also use the wristbands to buy items at the festival. It is so easy to lose your wallet or money at a festival. I think its amazing you can load funds on these braclets so you can buy things at the show and not have to worry about losing your money since the braclets are waterproof and dont break. I wouldnt be suprised if all concerts started using RFID wristband technology.

 

Pros and cons of this article.

 

Pros: I think the idea of RFID wristband technology is briliant and will change the concert industry.

RFID wristband technolog elliminates ticket fraud.

 

Cons: I think this article is really trying to sell you on the idea since its on a bussiness website so it may be biased.

 

I think alot of people would be reluctant to the idea of using a wristband instead of having a ticket because a lot of people see a concert ticket as a souvineer.

Music streaming service Turntable.fm now holds live online concerts, with each ticket going for $3 | Touring | Scoop.it
The online music streaming industry is highly competitive right now. Turntable, the company behind the music streaming site Turntable.fm, obviously recognizes these challenges — and it has rolled out a new feature in a bid to differentiate its...

Marisa Freund's insight:

In this article explains how Turntable is allowing anybody from around the world to watch certain live concerts, on their computers for only $3. I think that this is a great idea because if a person is too far away from where the concert is taking place or they do not have enough money to pay for it, they can see it live for a very cheap price.

Online concerts could make live music available to so many more people at an extremely lower price. This could seriously affect how and if people go to concerts.

Brandon Marsh's curator insight, October 14, 2014 8:58 PM

Live performance streaming, although interesting and new, does not completely encapsulate the full experience of an event, but it is still an exciting idea.

Stacey Boyd's curator insight, August 13, 2015 10:29 PM

Will live performance streaming be the sole future of music performance? How will this effect the artists and the consumer?

Vans Warped Tour: A backyard cookout with 80-plus bands, extreme sports and ...
Plain Dealer (blog)
What: More than 80 bands are part of this year's music and extreme sports festival. When: 11 a.m. Thursday, July 18.
Marisa Freund's insight:

This article explains how Warped Tour started out as just a one year festival with only a couple of bands, into one of the biggest music festivals in America.

 

Pros: It is one of the biggest summer music festivals in America, there are over 80 bands that play across 10 stages. Tickets are reasonably priced for an all day music festival with so much to offer. Also, there are always a few bands there that each person will know.

 

Cons: Warped Tour is mostly directed to one type of music genre. This tour also only tour around America, and some cities in Canada. Another con is that some of the set times overlap each other, and you can't make it to each set on time.

This article is interesting because it explains the lifestyle of warped tour that most bands get only a 30 min set and constantly changing.And that its about 2 hour set up time and 2 hour bring down

Madison Altonji's curator insight, November 7, 2014 10:36 PM

Warped tour feels a lot like a family to almost everyone who is a part of it. There is a very strong sense of community between the fans and the bands. Warped Tour is the longest running tour and it is what a lot of people spend their year looking forward to. The tour is a big deal and a major production for the crew and founder, Kevin Lyman. They describe it as building and taking down a small city everyday. 

Sydney Euber's curator insight, November 9, 2014 2:24 PM

Warped Tour started out as a way for a few small bands to gain exposure. It has since turned into a huge tour with around 80 bands and 8-10 stages. Each year the line up changes, and it is still used by some bands to jump start their careers and gain exposure. With many different genres of music presented, it attracts a variety of different music lovers. Warped Tour has created a dedicated community of musicians and music lovers alike.
