    here's the full article

    Lollapalooza is rolling out a new initiative this week called Lolla Cashless that claims to be the first effort from a major U.S. music festival to use radio frequency identification (or RFID)-enabled wristbands for payments. The Chicago music festival will begin sending concertgoers bracelets leading up to the August event that can be linked to credit card information for buying food and drinks.
    Here’s how it works: A small technology chip is embedded into the wristbands that concertgoers have to wear to enter Lollapalooza. Leading up to the event, attendees have the option to enter their credit card information once a bracelet is registered online. All of the restaurant and drink vendors will have point-of-sale systems set up so that users can tap the bracelets against a technology-enabled pad and type in a PIN code to pay for items. The payment is then automatically applied to a credit or debit card. "We feel like not only will that be big for us, but it will end up spreading across some of the other major festivals," said Patrick Dentler, marketing director at C3 Presents, which produces Lollapalooza, the Austin City Music Festival and the Austin Food & Wine Festival.
    The tech-enabled wristbands also work offline, a smart move considering Internet connections at these types of events tend to be less than stellar. The point-of-sale systems will store transactions until they can be processed later if the Internet goes down.
    Coachella, Bonnaroo and South by Southwest have also used RFID technology to tackle ticketing fraud and promote digital contests from sponsors. Already this year, marketers at Governor’s Ball Music Festival and [Electric] Daisy Carnival are putting a big emphasis on digital to connect with smartphone-toting millennials. However, Lollapalooza’s effort that layers in e-commerce is interesting because it shows how music festivals testing new types of payments may give marketers like McDonald’s and Starbucks that are already betting on mobile payments some additional insight into how millennials actually use their smartphones at events.

    I didn't take pics, but.... my passes arrived yesterday! YAY!

    I hope all of you get yours in the coming day. They were bundled with the passes, the souvenir placards, an Uber gift card (only one) and some info about Lolla Cashless. YAY! Three more weeks...

    Super excited for the The Last Internationale album…saw them at SXSW last year and was totally blown away! Not to many rock bands doing what they're doing anymore…trying to win tickets to Lollapalooza to see them again as they don't have too many shows right now! Figured I'd share here! woobox.com/7nizu8

    Looking like a rare Coolapalooza. Lower mid 70s all weekend. Being the festival is situated right on the lake, long pants and/or a long sleeve for later might make sense for Saturday.

    OMG. I love this town and I love this festival. So glad to be in Chicago to close out the month of July.

    The Swissotel is pretty badass, too. Yay!

    Today was a blast for us... Eminem was excellent in closing the first night, and Rihanna came out for 3-4 songs. Enjoyed Interpol and Royal Blood a lot, and what I saw of Lorde was good stuff. Samsung Galaxy VIP was awesome.

    Can't wait for Outkast tomorrow. Smooth sailing.

    At least lollapalooza cant police this board for the acknowledgement of the incident. Theyve been deleting any post on their facebook in regards to it.

    One of Samantha's tweets mentioned that it wasn't lolla staff but private security hired for that stage. I don't quite see how that changes much. Wouldn't it have been a private security company hired by lolla??

    yeah, they seem rather confused about the ordeal. of course it was outside security. who do they think lolla is securing the other 362 days of the year? i'm sure lolla has some clause in the contract with the security firm absolving them of responsibility if anything like this happens, though.

    Contracts that absolve liability don't always hold up in court. We don't know all the details yet, but if Dev really was assaulted without instigating, Lolla could definitely still be liable. As would the security company of course. Without commenting on the validity of the accusations, it's just an unfortunate situation.
