Activate Your Wristband & Register for Cashless

Activate your wristband for smooth entry and unlock extra safety features, such as adding an emergency contact. Next, register for cashless with your Amex® Card or any other credit/debit card. Cashless is the easiest way to pay for food, drinks, merch, and more—all with the tap of your wrist.

Here's How to Register for Cashless

  1. Activate your wristband and register your account with your Amex® Card, or any other credit/debit card. Then set a required PIN for security.
  2. During the festival, order at any food, drink, merch, or vendor and let them know you’re paying with your wristband.
  3. Tap your wristband, enter your PIN, and you’re done!

Reminder: Do not put on or tighten your wristband until you are ready to attend the festival, as they cannot be loosened or removed. If you later require a replacement, there will be a $20 wristband replacement fee.
