What Kind of Badge Holders are Perfect for Music Festivals?

At almost every large-scale music festival, you can count on needing at least one important thing: the admission ticket! The admission ticket serves as access to come and go as you please. Unlike traditional concerts, your ticket is used as a one-time pass into the event. With music festivals, these kinds of events can go on all day and have been known to stretch throughout the entire weekend—maybe throughout the weekday if it’s large enough. In such instances, attendees are coming and going at all times of the day whether they’re leaving to use the restroom, get something to eat, or retiring back to their hotel room until their favorite band comes on stage.

Badge Holders that Help with Traffic Control

With all of this coming and going, there needs to be some way to determine who has already paid their admission price to see the show. The issue is with music festivals, these events will give patrons the option of paying for the entire festival or perhaps for a couple of days, or maybe even a one-day pass. This is where the coordinator needs to be extremely organized in how they set up their admission passes.

Try Color-Coded Admission ID Badges

First of all, admission passes should be color-coded according to the type of admission package they’ve purchased. Specialist ID, an online wholesale badge ID distributor, offers music festival organizers plenty of options for color-coordinated passes. One in particular that we recommend is the Vertical Vinyl Color Frame Badge Holder that comes with a colorful border to display an ID pass. The vinyl pocket’s insert size is: 2 3/8" X 3 1/2", large enough to snugly fit a credit-card sized ID. It also comes with three pre-punched slot holes to thread a custom made lanyard or badge reel with. The available colors are: black, blue, green, orange, red, white, and yellow.

Protecting Music Festival Passes with RFID Technology

Another concern that music festivals need to take care in is accepting legitimate admission passes. The recent Comic-Con even in San Diego had to crack down on their admission passes by embedding their ID with RFID technology. The danger in this sort of technology is that while it can be easily scanned, it’s also easily assessable to cyber thieves and hackers.

Specialist ID has a solution to this!

Identity Stronghold Secure Badge Holder Flex

The Identity Stronghold Secure Badge Holder Flex comes in the same colors as the Vertical Vinyl Color Frame Badge Holder except instead of a colored frame, the entire one side of the badge holder is not only colored, but also RFID blocking, preventing thieves from extracting data from your visitor’s admission pass. This badge holder is wide enough to hold two ID cards. And comes with one pre-punched slot hole.

Oversized Badge Holders

For organizers who prefer to have their patrons print out their own tickets, the oversized ID Badge Holders are perfect for storing event passes and VIP tickets. Watch this video to get an idea of how large the vinyl pockets are here:
