WHAT ARE “CASHLESS PAYMENTS”?
The only form of payment accepted at all beverage and merchandise locations will be your RFID wristband – you just double-tap to pay! Beverage and merchandise booths will no longer accept cash or tickets. Instead, it’s all connected to your wristband! Paying for drinks and merchandise at the event is now easier, faster and…well, festive!
WHAT IS THE RFID PROCESS LIKE?
When you arrive at the festival, you will have to go get your cashless wristband at the Top-up station (formerly known as Ticket booths). To pay using your RFID wristband, you will start by “topping-up” and loading money to your cashless account using cash, credit, or debit – think of it like a pre-paid account. Once you make purchases by double-tapping your wristband at vendor locations, the amount spent will automatically be deducted from your account balance. If you run out of credit, you can recharge and top-up again (or set your account to “Auto Top-up” and never return to the Top-up station again! By enabling Auto Top-up, you can enjoy Festival with ease and get your unused money refunded back to your card after Festival *$5 processing fee will apply)
You can top-up your account in two (2) convenient ways:
- Set up your digital wallet by clicking here!
