Create an app for The Republic of Extra Cold festival in South Africa.

What we did

Bespoke design and development, deployment, supporting hardware infrastructure.


CloseComms were engaged to provide a hardware and software solution for the annual Castle Lite (brewed by SAB Miller) Republic Of Extra Cold Festival on Stanley Island in South Africa.

We built a web app that kept festival goers up-to-date with all the live events during the event. They were able to upload social photos through the app and navigate their way around the island.

We also included a cool new feature where guests could find where their friends were on the island and talk to them through the app.

Guests were also able to order and pay for their drinks through the app, and we provided organisers with our POS terminals to take the orders and manage the process.
