Plot is designed to cater for all stages of a festival lifecycle and is constantly evolving, with new features always being added to improve the user experience. Plot sites can be adapted, changed and updated according to a festival team’s bespoke needs – from sign up forms to banner ads, line-up release info to filterable artist pages, all on a quick to launch and load website that looks beautiful and engages users. Importantly, a Plot festival website is full of features, meaning customers can completely remove any ongoing costs for third party design and development once the website is launched.
Says Plot co-founder Christian Hill, “Plot allows festivals of all sizes and budgets to create a festival website that looks amazing, engages its audience, has all the features a festival marketing team needs, and will be delivered within a week. We are able to do this by removing the bespoke design process, whilst still delivering something unique, powerful and affordable.”
Over the last decade, Project Simply has worked with some of the most prestigious clients in the world such as Parklife, BPM, Sundown, Field Day and Love Supreme, but now also want to use all their skills and knowledge, via Plot, to help smaller festivals with less experienced teams, on tighter budgets. The team at Project Simply have essentially bottled all of their combined knowledge of what makes a great music festival website, removed the bespoke design process, but still created something flexible, unique and powerful.
Plot adheres to some key principles including the ability to create, modify, expand and grow the pages on the site in the lead up to the event as more information is released, and then scale it back once it is over. As artists and performances are at the heart of every event, Plot has created various custom tools and an intelligent, easy to modify system for managing and presenting performance and lineup information, filterable artist pages, auto-generated smart schedule calendars, What’s On listings and poster-style text lineup generators.
Launching an event is a stressful time, and making a system that gives all control to the admin teams with an instant site launcher – rather than having to speak to developers or hosting companies – is also a hugely important time and stress saving factor that stands Plot apart. Plot websites are also incredibly fast to load, even during launch phases. Plot has also created a fully branded, fully customisable and powerful, hassle-free form system for contact, email sign-up, pre-registration, volunteer applications and much more. Add in a smooth scroll system, a completely custom notification system with powerful banner messages and popups, the familiarity and comfort of WordPress and a simplified go-live process thanks a custom built system that can handle DNS and SSL settings within the admin area, and you have a superbly streamlined but feature packed and efficient site that is as easy to use as it it is engaging for both festival teams and customers alike.
Plot has everything it takes to become the most highly considered and best rated festival website solution for music festivals anywhere in the world.
