This year’s event is fully cashless! You’ll be able to buy anything you need with just your RFID wristband.

Here’s how it works: a tag to your credit card is stored on your pin-protected wristband, and each time you tap your wristband to make a purchase, your credit card info is automatically retrieved to complete your purchase. No topping up required!

Registering your wristband is simple:

  • Upon arrival you will receive an RFID wristband from the Box Office - walk up to the Billfold Payment Activations located at the entrances.

  • Use a Billfold Payment Activation to complete a one-time credit card registration via a secure server!

  • Register on-site at a “Billfold Payment Activations” area and create a 4-digit code that you’ll use to complete every transaction. Remember this code! This code protects your credit card info if it is lost or stolen during the event.

  • If you do forget your code, don’t panic! Simply head to any Billfold Payment Activation area to re-register your band.

  • That’s it! Stow away your wallet, grab some food or drinks, and make your way to the dance floor!

Wristbands are non-transferable and non-refundable. Damaged, tampered, stolen, and lost wristbands may not be replaced and may be voided. Treat your wristbands with love! We recommend that you do not put on your wristband before the festival weekend. The wristband will be scanned as you enter the festival grounds. You must wear wristbands at all times during attendance of the festival.


What if I want to pay with cash? No problem - you can load cash credits onto your RFID wristband through one of the RFID Cashier areas. You could also both register your credit card and add cash value, this way when cash runs out your credit card steps in to complete your payment.

I added cash, so how do I check my balance? Simply head to any RFID Cashier area and ask the cashier to check the balance for you. I’ve linked my credit card with my RFID wristband, but I forgot to opt-in for email receipts and/or I typed the wrong email address!

That’s alright! Simply go back to a Billfold Payment Activation kiosk and re-register your credit card; remember to opt-in for email receipts and check your spelling ;)

What exactly is RFID? RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips are tokenized for secure access to a PCI-compliant credit card payment storage and processor.

How do RFID wristband payments work? A tag to your credit card is stored on your pin-protected wristband, and each time you tap your wristband to make a purchase, your credit card info is automatically retrieved to complete your purchase.

What if I lose my RFID wristband? Not to worry - nothing is stored on your RFID wristband except a UID (unique identifier code). You can think of your wristband as a key which, paired with your 4-digit code, allows you to confirm payments quickly with just a tap of the wrist

I don’t feel comfortable “storing” my credit card with Billfold! This is no different than storing your credit card on apps like Uber, Amazon, or Ticketmaster for fast check out. Your sensitive information is stored in an ultra secure, PCI-compliant server operated by PayPal. That said, you may load cash onto your wristband instead (see map for cashier locations).


We are committed to protecting your privacy rights. Your consumer information helps us understand how to best tailor our events and deliver the best guest experience. Importantly, we are both PCI-compliant and GDPR-compliant.
