Interesting idea and im sure plenty of people will take advantage of it, but I'm far too mistrustful and paranoid about the real intentions these big companies have when they offer "free" stuff like this. My fingerprints? No thanks.
If its closer to the entrance than my campground Ill definitely drop a case in there. Beats paying $6 a beer or walking all the way back to the campsite if its right by the entrance to the festival.
This could be very useful midway through the day depending on campsite location. Somehow I feel like it will be more towards the food vendors/rollerrink and all that stuff. I mean there isn't ever anything over by the entrance is there?
Never found the damn thing or I would've tried it out... we were parked @lot14d which was a helluva walk to get beer at sundown each day... I'm anxious to hear how it worked out from people who got a chance to use it too
"conversation is a game of circles and i'm getting dizzy-- bye"
My group and I stopped by in the morning because we didn't know what it was. The staff was like you can't be in here and asked us to leave. Now seeing what it was it may have been too early and they might not have been open yet. Didn't explain what it was for and at the time seemed to take up decent real estate. A sign outside explaining what it was for could have been helpful. We ended up thinking it was where Heineken staff members went to keep cool because the only thing that appeared to be staying cool in there was also being paid to work there.
Went W2 and this place was amazing. Not only did they have amazing fans blowing while you waiting in just a 2 minute line but they'd bring back your Heine's freezing cold. We took in a case each day and never waited more than 5 minutes to check in and out.
I only knew about it because a friend who works for Heineken told me about it. It definitely came in handy this past weekend. You check your beers and then check out however many you wanted. We would do it by the case as well and the dome provided a nice respite from the heat. It was only convenient if you were located near the dome itself, otherwise, it might have been a pain in the ass.

That went quick. I think I'm gonna try this when I get there, drop off a case just to have easy access to beers while hanging out in the main hub of the campgrounds. Sure beats walking back and forth filling pockets with as many beers as possible.
It will be back. I sent an email to Heineken and they confirmed. I was told to watch their FB and Twitter for info. A limited number of reservations will be taken online, the rest of the spots are FCFS at the festival
