The project

Connect&GO provided RFID access control solutions for the 2018 edition of Heavy MTL at Parc Jean-Drapeau. Thousands of heavy metal fans scanned their RFID wristbands for access to the site and various zones within it. Festival organizers were able to track crowd capacity in real time and manage individual permissions on-site when needed. Wait times at site entrances were greatly reduced and any chance of ticket fraud was virtually eliminated due to the integration of RFID technology for access control.


  • Long wait times at festival site entrances.
  • Difficult to track crowd capacity on-site.
  • Risk of ticket sharing and/or fraud with printed paper tickets.
