HellFrames: Uniting The Tezos Blockchain And Live Events Through Billy’s Innovation And Hellfest Collaboration

Billy, an advanced ticketing platform powered by Tezos, has joined hands with Hellfest, the largest music festival in France. Their innovative partnership presents the exclusive NFT collection named “HellFrames.”

Merging the high-energy world of live events with the progressive realm of blockchain technology, Billy, an advanced ticketing platform powered by Tezos, has joined hands with Hellfest, the largest music festival in France. Their innovative partnership presents the exclusive NFT collection named “HellFrames.”

HellFrames are Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), serving as digital twins of the 4-day passes for Hellfest 2023.

These NFTs artistically represent the various iconic stages of the festival, transforming them into unique digital souvenirs. The rarest among these HellFrames contain delightful surprises and grant holders access to distinctive experiences during and beyond the festival.

Hellfest’s venture into the Web3 landscape aims to provide an avant-garde, artistic, and technological experience to festival enthusiasts and those intrigued by the possibilities of Web3.

This initiative is powered by the Tezos blockchain, a high-performance, environmentally conscious blockchain that significantly limits carbon footprint through the use of a validation method called “Proof Of Stake”.

This method slashes the network’s carbon footprint by a staggering 99% compared to those utilizing the “Proof Of Work” validation, such as Bitcoin.

The beauty of this collaboration lies in its user-centric approach. While the concept of NFTs and blockchain might seem complex, Billy and Hellfest ensure a seamless experience for users.

Billy automatically generates a digital wallet for those who connect to the platform via email, providing an effortless journey for festival-goers.

For those who already possess a Tezos wallet, they can use it for login and transaction purposes. Festival-goers can view their unique HellFrames on the Billy web or mobile app, with no requirement for cryptocurrency to secure them.

This enticing HellFrames collection comprises six unique works associated with the six stages of Hellfest. Among them, 600 are categorized as Classic, offering an exclusive post-Hellfest game for a chance to win rewards from Hellfest partners.

Sixty are labeled Special, providing Hellfest merchandise vouchers and cashless credit among other things. The six coveted Rare HellFrames grant winners an exclusive backstage tour, VIP upgrades, and a chance to join the CULT for two.

Eric Perrin, the communications director of Hellfest, described this innovation as an attempt to create a fresh connection with their tech-savvy audience, providing an added experience to their journey.

“We are a festival that likes challenges, we like to renew ourselves and go where we are not expected. Our audience is generally quite tech-savvy. All the lights were green to get started in this area” (translated).

He also highlighted that the festival does not envisage a commodification of these NFTs by their owners.

“There will be no interest in reselling them on the secondary market, these experiences will take place during the festival” (translated).

Hellfest does not generate additional income with this operation; it’s an investment on the part of the festival.

To be a part of this exhilarating journey, all you need to do is collect your HellFrame before June 12 for a chance to win a unique experience.

On June 15, the lucky winners can claim their rewards from the Festival Info Point, setting the stage for an unforgettable festival experience. Come July, the magic of HellFrames continues with a series of thrilling experiences.

Incorporating the Tezos blockchain, Billy and Hellfest are pushing the boundaries of live event experiences, showing the world how technology can create more immersive, engaging, and memorable moments.
