We have been working away now for a few weeks building a future proof festival website. We see our ticket holders and the bands that play as part of our BBFest Family so with that a community website had to be made.
We have all the usual things like blogs, line ups, band profiles etc but we have also added a community forum where people can chat about the festival, arrange car sharing and even suggest bands for the next festival.
With us now living in an era of social media we have also made it quite easy to sign up to the community website. We have Twitter and Facebook registration so no passwords ever needed. Just sign in with your Facebook or Twitter accounts and away you go!
We have also added a reward points scheme. We rely on word of mouth to help spread the word about the festival so we will be automatically rewarding you for sharing posts, joining in with the forum, reading the newsletter we email to you and purchasing your festival tickets and merchandise. What the points add up to we will tell you soon but there is a leaderboard on the website to see who the top supporters are so keep an eye out!
We really hope you like the website and join in with the BBFest community. See you at the festival!
