Wakestock music festival first in UK to use microchips

Wristbands fitted with microchips have been worn by everyone at a UK festival for the first time. The technology, which designers claim will cut out fake tickets and queues, was used by 15,000 festival-goers at Wakestock, Cardigan Bay, Wales.

Designers claim the advantages to fans are that they can pre-load them with money to pay for food and drink, check into social networks and ensure they have a “cleaner experience”.
