Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Relaunch
Aesthetic, functional and mobile.
The website of the renowned Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, known far and wide, has been given a new digital face. A completely new design and functional concept was created and implemented by gradwerk.
Based on Responsive Web Design and CMS 6, the bilingual pages also present themselves in perfect form and function on mobile devices.
In the course of the website's new orientation towards users and, above all, visitors interested in music, the navigation structures and search options were simplified and made user-friendly. Thus, events can be searched for in various ways, for example, by date, keywords, artists or even venues and, with the help of an external ordering system, event tickets can be purchased directly via the website. In a second step, the possibility of interactive seat reservations will be added soon. Bookings for the master classes, in which top-class artists and pedagogues devote themselves to the next generation of musicians in courses and intensive individual lessons, can also be ordered directly online. For this purpose, one of the most modern payment systems has been integrated with the help of Telecash-Payment.
The individual events on the website also contain detailed descriptions, extensive artist biographies and information about the venue itself. The provision of YouTube and Vimeo videos rounds off the multimedia offer.
Thanks to the new gradwerk CMS 6 content management system, completely new possibilities for the administration of all content and the evaluation of all activities are opening up for the staff of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival Foundation and Sponsoring Society. The new CMS 6 is the forward-looking website publishing system from gradwerk, which meets all the needs of a modern website developed for mobile devices. With the help of various databases developed for the client and seamlessly integrated into CMS 6, the event data, artist biographies, location information and the festival shop data can be managed directly in the CMS. Via corresponding interfaces to the Filemaker customer database, a fully automatic comparison of all master class registrations takes place.
For gradwerk, art and culture have always been a "matter of the heart", so gradwerk regularly supports the festival as a concert sponsor and invests in performances by renowned artists.
