Samsung to use ticketless tech for Red Hot Chilli Peppers gig

Samsung are planning to roll out NFC-ticketing worldwide but for now they've taken the first step by introducing wireless ticketing using wristbands

 

Samsung have unveiled plans to launch the first ticketless gig in Europe letting music fans enter the venue simply by having a RFID-enabled wristband potentially eliminating queues.

The gig in question will be at Knebworth on the 23 June where the Red Hot Chilli Peppers will be performing. Instead of using a conventional ticket they'll be issued with a multi-function wristband.

Using RFID technology the wristband can be set up to check you in to your preffered social media platform of choice whether it's Facebook or Twitter.

Samsung will also be showcasing the future of NFC and using NFC as a ticketing device at special stands where music-lovers will be able to try out the Samsung Galaxy Note and of course the recently release quad-core Samsung Galaxy S3.

At present NFC on smartphones is mainly used in the form of Android Beam and most recently by Barclaycard who introduced their PayTag NFC sticker which makes any smartphone NFC-compatible.
