Festival Goers - It's That Time of Year Again

Yes that’s right, the time of year is now coming around again where all festival dates and tickets are released. Oh the excitement!

Just imagining which one you will be going to this year, or how many rather than just the one is a great thought, so let’s hold that for a minute and give yourself a moment to admire the madness you will be attending.

skignz done a bit of research to see what the top 10 festivals are this year that people will be attending. This is what we got:

Download Festival 2015

Wireless Festival 2015

Reading Festival 2015

Leeds Festival 2015

Calling Festival 2015

EDC Festival 2015

Creamfields Festival 2015

Glastonbury Festival 2015

V Festival 2015

Ultra Music Festival 2015

Now are you attending any of these? If you are you know how crazy, packed and fun they will be. 

However through all that fun you will want to make sure that whilst camping out, drinking and partying you will need to make sure that you can find your friends, tent, and stages and drink bars very easily, as losing any of these will defiantly be a drag to the festival experience. 

So how can you make sure that you will not happen to be in any state where you cannot find your friends, tent, and stages and drink bars? The answer is skignz

skignz is a free app that you can download to your mobile device. It uses augmented reality and GPS to allow you to place skignz wherever you are going and then easily direct yourself when you arrive at the location.

Now that probably sounds a bit confusing to you, well here is a little example of what skignz can do. 

‘Once you have downloaded the skignz app, you and your friend’s can all add each other and join together on skignz. Then you can place a ‘virtual’ skignz above your own head. Once you have done this say you are at the festival and you are all dancing away and your friend leaves to go and get a drink, now finding them again in that massive crowd is going to be a struggle. 

Well what you do is open up the skignz app on your phone, scan the crowd and there you should see a little floating skignz above your friends head telling you where they are and how far away so you are easily directed to them. How simple is that?’

With skignz, you can also pre place skignz on your online account through a Google maps interface with the free 3 skignz you get at the beginning of signing up. So say you pre placed a skignz before the festival and you placed one above the stage you want to see your favourite act playing, one above where your tent is going to be and one above where the bars are, you will easily be able to find your way to and back from the bar, to the stage where you want to be and back to the tent at the end of the night when after a few drinks finding your tent will seem to prove a little difficult! 

skignz can help make sure your festival experience is fun and you get the most out of seeing the acts you went to go see and not spent a lot of the time looking for others or getting lost. 

So why not download the app through iTunes or Google Play before you go and have a little play about. You can get used to it and then be ready to use it for the festivals you will be attending this year. The line-up for each festival looks awesome at the moment so you really don’t want to missing the acts and spending time wandering about hopelessly.

skignz on Stag Parties

Stag parties are the best part of a wedding that a guy (and his mates) look forward too. It has the 'title' as his one night of freedom to just lose control, let loose and have a laugh with his mates.

Wherever that takes place is completely up to his best man and group of friends who he trusts his entire wedding with, so why not trust him and his friends to organise his best night of the whole event.

Most stags depending on the type of party or person, generally takes place abroad or in another city. Somewhere that is a bit different and new to everyone. However the problem with that is that no-one knows where to go. 

Knowing where the best places are to go and the location of them makes the night more enjoyable to save everyone from wondering around getting lost and spending a lot of time in unusual places and maybe with some unusual people.

Plus who knows who you may bump into or what situations you may get yourself into after having, as we all know, quite a lot of drinks. Now people think they will go to a few bars, have a good time and then maybe as the night goes on end up in a strip club to give the groom a good end to his night. 

However we have all seen this get planned before and never go to plan. What film have we seen this on … The Hangover! 

The Hangover, parts 1 and 2, show two of the boys getting married and going on their stag do. Now all the plans they have such as no strip bars and just a few drinks never go to plan. 

Part One: Shows how the boys all end up lost and hungover in Las Vegas having got themselves into a lot of trouble and losing their main man, the groom somewhere in Las Vegas and they have no idea! 

Part Two: Shows Stuart getting married in Thailand and after the mess of the first stag do, he just wants a relaxing night on the beach then an early night in bed. 

This doesn’t happen. Yet again the boys end up somewhere random, very hungover in a new place, in a lot of trouble and losing the bride's brother somewhere in a new unknown city to them. 

Now as funny as these films are for us to watch, we know ourselves we would not like it if this happened to us on our stag parties. The panic would be uncontrollable and not to mention what the bride would be thinking … 

skignz can help to prevent all of these issues from happening – it is your very own personal tracker. skignz can make your night relaxed, safe and still just as enjoyable as you had already planned. (If you would like to know more about skignz then please go to the website or read more on the rest of the blogs). 

Now how can skignz help you to have the best yet organised and safe stag party in 3 simple steps ...

1. Prior to your stag party, you can plan which bars you would like to attend and then pre-place a skignz above the location so that when you get there it is easily accessible. Just open the app on your phone, scan the environment and it will direct you exactly to where your skignz and first bar is! (You can then do this for the rest of the night with the other places you have planned to go to). 

2. Arriving at the desired location, it can help you to find your accommodation straight away. To save you the hassle pre-place a skignz before you go then when you arrive no time is wasted trying to find where you need to be, you can be straight out on the drink starting to enjoy your stag party. 

3. You can place a skignz above yourself. So if you were to end up like a scene out of the hangover (let’s hope not), you would easily be able to locate were the others are as a skignz would pop up on the app and tell you where your friend is and vice versa. Now we know we always have the majorly drunk one and the sensible one on stag parties and someone always generally tends to wander off, so knowing you can easily find them if they are not answering their phone is a great thing! 

Plus a little something for the brides … you can use this technology as the guys do above on your own Hen night. But also you can keep an eye on 'Promiscuis Kassy', 'Pornstar Katy' or even 'Frigid Brenda'. 

However to end on a serious note, stag parties are meant to be crazy and all about having fun, but still make sure your safe. This doesn't have to be in the most serious way as skignz is a small safety icon that no one can see publicly only virtually. 

There has been a lot of stories in the news about people getting lost on stag parties and ending up in bad situations so make sure that the worst thing to happen to you is that you have a very very bad regrettable hangover the next day, but you are still somewhere safe and sound!
