Wristband activation ensures a smooth process when entering the festival each day and allows you to add emergency contact information to your wristband. All you need to do is enter your wristband ID number (located on the inside of your wristband) and contact info to activate.

Register For Cashless

Cashless is the easiest way for you to pay for food, drinks, merch and more - with the tap of your wrist. Here's how it works:

  1. Register your wristband in advance: Link a credit or debit card to your wristband, then set a required PIN for security. Now you're registered for Cashless too!
  2. Once you're at the fest, just order at any bar or vendor location displaying the Cashless logo, and let them know you are paying with your wristband.
  3. Then tap your wristband, enter your PIN, and go.
