Sphinxblick Open Air Music Festival Challenge

In October 2022, a leading bank was asked to provide reliable card retail services to the Sphinxblick open-air private music festival in Erongo Region. Erongo is in the middle of the Namib Desert and has no signal coverage. Sphinxblick hosts 11 bands with 2 from South Africa, in the picture, is Weissdorn from Namibia. Card facilities were required to service a kitchen and 3 bars for about 500 private entries.

The Solution
