Queue App: Modernizing the Music Festival Experience
Austin is known as the “live music capitol of the world” so it is no surprise that Austin hosts a number of music festivals each year. One of them is Fun Fun Fun Fest. Austin is also known as a bit of a tech hub and we are interested in finding out how coordinators are being modern and using technology to bring this event to life.
“Music festival” isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a modern company but Transmission Events, the organizers of FFF Fest, are staying ahead of the curve when it comes to making things easy, mobile and effective.
It’s all thanks to the Queue App. This simple easy to use application helps event coordinators stay organized. It all started with an idea to make things simple. We had a chance to speak to Greg Patterson, CEO of Queue.
“It’s an event management platform, so it’s not just the ticket services, it’s the planning, managing, analyzing the sales, and all that fun stuff,” said Patterson.
Queue has been improved each year. It can now be used on iPads, iPhones, and it’s also a web application that helps staff stay connected at all times. It’s important to them during this type of event.
Queue App’s ease of use, mobility and accessibility are just some of the most important elements of Queue. It’s what helped FFF Fest be a fan favorite. Each year, the festival has had an increase in ticket sales. This year, close to 17 thousand people were expected to attend each day of the three-day event. All of them have a code to be scanned and counted by Queue. It’s not only changing the festival experience for music lovers but for the people who work year-round to make FFF Fest happen. Patterson says Queue has also been expanding. They are lending their modern ticketing systems to other events, including South By Southwest sponsored events.
So what does the future hold for Queue and their partnership with Fun Fun Fun Fest? According to Patterson the sky is the limit. It’s all about modernizing the way music festivals and events operate.
