    Top-up Your Account

    Next, click the “Top-up” tab, select the “Top-up” button, and enter the amount of credit you wish to add. Click “Checkout” to be redirected to the payment site.

    All unspent credit, excluding top-up bonuses, will be refunded back to you after the event (less a $5.00 refund processing fee). Please review our refund policy for more details.

ENABLING AUTO TOP-UP

The easiest and most convenient way to add credit to your account is to “Enable Auto Top-up”. With the “Enable Auto Top-up” feature, your account balance will automatically re-load $40 into your account when your balance drops below $10.

In order to enable Auto Top-up, you must click “Yes, enable” when topping-up online and the transaction must be successful. Only then will the top-up amount be charged to your credit card and you will receive an email notification of this transaction. Your account will then auto top-up when you fall below $10.

Benefits of Auto Top-up:
  • Optimal convenience - you’ll never run low on credit at the event
  • Saves you time not having to visit a “Top-up Station” to top-up more credit
  • Automatic email notifications whenever your account gets re-loaded with credit
  • Automatic refund back on your credit card for leftover credit after the event

FAQ

  • WHAT IS A CASHLESS ACCOUNT?

    Think of a cashless account as a pre-paid account, and your RFID wristband as the key to that account. The funds you top-up are stored in this account, and each time you tap your wristband to make a purchase, the amount will automatically be deducted from your account balance.

  • WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REGISTER YOUR WRISTBAND?

    • Ability to top-up your account in advance, saving you time from visiting a “Top-Up Station” at the event
    • Email notifications of all your top-up and purchase transactions
    • Tracking of your on-site purchases
    • Automatic refund after the event (for any leftover credit from online top-ups)
    • Refund requests from cash top-ups onsite must be submitted from a registered account
    • If you ever lose or break your wristband, customer service will be able to cancel and re-issue you a new wristband (replacement cost is $20) and transfer your account balance – but only if you are registered
    • Contest and prize giveaway opportunities
  • CAN I LINK MORE THAN ONE WRISTBAND TO MY CASHLESS ACCOUNT?

    Register a new account for each wristband if you want to keep your spending separate. Assign a wristband to each of your buddies and have them each create a new account with their wristband numbers. Individual versus Shared Cashless Accounts

    Individual Cashless Account: linking only one wristband to a cashless account for individual spending.

    Shared Cashless Account: linking two or more wristbands to your cashless account to allow all linked items to make purchases from the same pool of funds. Once a wristband is linked to a cashless account or topped-up, you won’t be able to create a new cashless account for that item or add it to another cashless account for shared spending. You will not be able to separate the spending amounts of linked wristbands.

    **To take advantage of a Shared Cashless Account, make sure you link all wristbands before you top-up.**

  • I PURCHASED A SATURDAY AND A SUNDAY WRISTBAND. DO I NEED TO LINK THEM BOTH TO MY CASHLESS ACCOUNT?

    YES! In order for all of your wristbands to access your top-up funds, you must link both wristbands to your registered cashless account. If you topped-up your Saturday wristband but did not add it to a registered account on Day 1, you must create your cashless account and link the Saturday wristband FIRST (this transfers the funds from your wristband to your account.) Second, add your Sunday wristband to the account for Sunday spending.

  • HOW DO I TOP-UP CREDIT?

    There are several ways to top-up your cashless account, but we always recommend topping-up before you arrive:
    Before the Festival:
    Once you’ve created your cashless account and linked your wristband, you can top-up your account at any time, either from your computer or smart phone.
    At the Festival:
    You can top-up at one of the onsite Top-Up Stations located throughout the event grounds, and trained staff will be on-hand to help you through the process. If you’ve registered your cashless account, you can top-up at any time right from your smart phone!

  • HOW DO I MAKE A PURCHASE?

    Now that you’ve topped-up your account, you can make cashless purchases for food, drinks and merchandise at the event. Once you’re at a vendor location:

    1. Tap your wristband on the RFID reader.
    2. Place your order with the staff.
    3. Tap your wristband a second time to confirm your transaction.

    The amount will automatically be deducted from your account. It’s that easy!

  • CAN I COMBINE THE CREDIT OF TWO WRISTBANDS?

    The only way you can share credit is to have those wristbands as part of a shared account. Wristbands can only be added to a shared account prior to having been topped-up or registered to an individual account.

  • CAN I SPLIT THE COST OF SOMETHING WITH A FRIEND?

    No, you cannot split payment for an item. Only one wristband can be used to open the transaction, and that same wristband must be used to close and confirm the purchase. This is a security feature to ensure the purchaser is in control of their own spending.

  • HOW DO I CHECK MY CASHLESS BALANCE?

    If your wristband is registered to a cashless account, you can log in and check your balance at any time. Or, simply tap your wristband at any payment point or Customer Service location and your cashless balance will be visible from the reader.

  • I FROZE MY WRISTBAND BY MISTAKE, SO HOW DO I UNFREEZE IT?

    The “Freeze” feature, which is only available to registered users, allows you to “freeze” a lost or stolen wristband so no further purchases can be made. You can freeze your wristband from the “Wristbands” tab of your cashless account, and can unfreeze by clicking the button a second time. Or, visit any Customer Service station for assistance.

  • HOW DO I GET A REPLACEMENT WRISTBAND IF IT’S LOST OR I PULLED IT TOO TIGHT?

    If you’ve created an account online and linked your wristband to it, no worries! Visit Customer Service at the event and they will deactivate your lost wristband and issue you a new one (replacement cost is $20). Please bring valid photo ID. Link the new wristband number to your account and continue having a great time – your money is still in your account if you’ve previously linked it.

    However, if you did NOT create an online account and didn’t link your wristband, unfortunately your remaining credit balance can no longer be retrieved. To get a replacement wristband, visit Customer Service and show proof of your original event ticket purchase along with valid photo ID (replacement cost is $20). If someone else bought the tickets on your behalf, you will need to bring the original purchaser with you to the kiosk and show proof of purchase along with valid photo ID. Replacement wristbands will be issued at the discretion of the Customer Service Representative.

    To avoid this issue, we strongly recommend you create an account and link your wristbands to that account prior to the event. Treat your wristband the same way you would treat cash! We are not responsible for any funds stolen / missing from your wristband if you lose it.
