MTN Bushfire Announces Festival App

Posted by radio On April - 25 - 2019

MTN Bushfire is excited to announce the development of the official MTN Bushfire App, that has come about through a partnership between MTN Bushfire and Real Image, the festival’s IT partner.

 

The MTN Bushfire festival app is in line with MTN Bushfire’s #BringYourFire ‘green’ mandate, a commitment to environmental sustainability. This year, the festival embraces the #GreenYourFire theme through delivering a paperless festival.

 

Other ways in which the event will embrace the theme include; recycling, tree planting activities among others. The Festival’s commitment to environmental sustainability extends into the Marketplace and Global Food Village, with vendors required to use recyclable or biodegradable materials for their packaging within the Festival.

 

 

The festival App is scheduled to be released in the second week of May and is set to transform the way patrons communicate with our key customer touch points, with access to the following; Tickets, Line up, Festival Map, Park and ride schedule , Merchandise, Sponsor a Child, Explore and General Info.

The app will also allow the user to view the Bushfire Artist line-up, Artists’ bios, performance stage schedules with an exciting feature that will enable a user to create a custom schedule of their favourite artist and then receive real-time notifications of when the artist is about to go on stage.

 

 

Users will be able to receive zone-specific notifications when they step into a certain zone (e.g. Kids Zone, The Barn, Food Court area etc). Examples of such notifications to be received include Safety & Security Tips, Park & Ride Tips etc. Accessible via the app will also be up-to-date maps of the festival site and other important locations.

 

 

A real-time Lost & Found notification feature will also been added within the app’s interface. Any user of the app will receive notifications if and when an item has been lost and handed over to the Bushfire team. The app will also feature access to the Merchandise online store.

 

 

MTN Bushfire the is acclaimed music and arts festival known and loved for its Afro-centric ethos and its strong focus on African music, culture and the arts. Listed by BBC as a “Top African festival,” MTN Bushfire has recently confirmed an eclectic mix of artists from Europe and Africa. The latest artist announcements reflect the diverse mix of styles, sounds and cultures that will be on display across the MTN Bushfire stages.
