As part of an on-going competition to win music festival tickets, ChooseFest.com has opened up a festival review system which allows users to give feedback on festivals and rate them with up to 5 stars over four categories (Line up, Atmosphere, Location and Organisation.)
Furthermore ChooseFest announced the integration of festival photo's into the ChooseFest prototype,
"You will also see for some of our 2012 Festivals we have started adding photos" - this addition brings more visual media to the website, something which ChooseFest continues to emphasis with its Pinterest presence. "We are just getting the hang of pinning and have found a fantastic community of festival lovers with some really great festival imagery."
As well as sharing their developments with photographs and an update of their reviews competition ChooseFest announces their joining of Pinterest and the release of some new festival boards:
"Pinterest lets us share visually in a great way – we can see lots of great festival pictures finding their way there and we hope to bring them all together." They have 10 festival boards at the time of this release which include:
- Festival Meme's
- Historical Festival Photos
- Festival Essentials
- Mud Shots
- Festival Posters
Also in this new blog post, ChooseFest discuss changes to their festival tickets system:
"For festivals in the last half of this year (and beyond) we will increasingly be showing you a better selection of tickets on the festival page. This is because we are building the mechanics behind ChooseFest, slowly but surely. For example if you head over to our Bestival 2012 page you will see that we now show multiple ticket types (Adult weekend, Adult single day, Car parking tickets, etc.) This is a step forward towards a totally transparent way for you the festival goer to see your options for buying festival tickets; we will be working hard over the winter to make this even better for 2013, so watch this space!"
ChooseFest is the latest project from StormGate, an app development company based in London, England. ChooseFest matches users to festivals by collating their tastes and comparing them to up to date festival line-up information. For more information on ChooseFest visit http://www.choosefest.com
