Customers will be able to buy tickets, food and beverages with it. They will also need to link it to proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.

The organizers of Frontier Festival are confident they’ll be allowed to go ahead with their premiere this summer, thanks to a series of measures that are supposed to make the event COVID-proof.

Only visitors “from the region” will be allowed to attend, according to the announcement, all acts, none of which have been announced yet, will come from the Netherlands, as well. 
Neither date nor location have been confirmed, however, the organizers around Frontier Events founder and director Obo Orgut have already announced the measures that are supposed to make Frontier Festival COVID proof.
Most notably, visitors, artists, crew and staff will all be required to show proof of having taken the COVID vaccine or, alternatively, a negative test result, taken no longer than 72 hours prior to the event.
The personalized tickets, which haven’t gone on sale yet, will only be validated once the festivalgoer has produced either one of the above.  
The technology linking the ticket to a negative test result or vaccination certificate is called Frontrow, and was co-founded by Orgut.
The announcement of the premiere also states that the festival site will be spacious enough to allow visitors to maintain a distance. All stages are outdoor stages, but there will be ample opportunity to shelter from rain or sunshine.
Food and beverages will be ordered via app, which also informs customers of the emptiest bars in their vicinity in order to avoid queues. Organizers promise spacious toilets that are cleaned throughout the day.
While no artists have been announced yet, the genres have been confirmed: techno and hip hop, both hugely popular in the Netherlands.
Festival promoter Ibo Orgut has 20 years of industry experience, having worked for ID&T and Q-dance and their respective events.
