About Ziro Festival

Nestled in the breathtaking landscapes of Ziro Valley, Ziro Fest 2023, an annual celebration of indie music and cultural diversity, marked its momentous tenth edition. To elevate the festival experience and tackle the challenges of handling cash transactions in a remote locale, Ziro Fest partnered with DC Cashless, a prominent provider of RFID/NFC cashless systems and payment solutions. In this case study, we delve into how DC Cashless introduced a cashless payment system that redefined the Ziro Fest experience.

DC Cashless Solution Integrated

Ziro Fest, situated in a captivating yet isolated location, faced the significant challenge of limited or no network connectivity. With conventional banking and payment infrastructure out of reach, managing cash transactions became a logistical headache. Issues like cash handling, long queues, and security concerns posed a potential threat to the festival's vibrant spirit.

DC Cashless's response was unequivocal: establish a seamless cashless payment system that caters to the unique requirements of Ziro Fest. Over the course of four eventful days, we implemented a comprehensive cashless ecosystem featuring RFID/NFC wristbands, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, and a robust backend system. The festival wristbands served as virtual wallets, enabling festivalgoers to make purchases and transactions with a simple tap.
