Quick And Easy Festival Entry

Wristband activation ensures a smooth process when entering the festival each day and allows you to add emergency contact info to your wristband. All you need to do is enter your wristband ID number and contact info to activate!


Pay With A Tap Of The Wrist

ACL Cashless – it’s the easy way for you to pay for goods, grub, merch and more with the tap of a wrist. It works in conjunction with your credit card. You will set a PIN during registration — just like a debit card — that you will enter before completing a purchase at the fest. You can use any card to sign up! American Express® Card Members receive additional perks!

American Express® Card Members

Register your American Express Card for ACL Cashless payments to make the most of your ACL Fest weekend! Card Members who register will receive:

  • A one-time $5 Cashless spend credit, which can be used in a single transaction at all cashless-accepting merchants on site
  • Access to the American Express Card Member Lounge
  • Access to the American Express Cashless Entrance, located at the Barton Springs West Entrance
  • A complimentary monogram at the Monogram Studio in the American Express Experience

Be sure to register your Card before the festival weekend begins, as some of the benefits may take 24 hours to activate on your wristband. Cashless spend credit is for one-time use in a single transaction; any unused remaining balance is forfeited. See Benefit Terms for details here. Front Gate Cashless Registration Terms apply, including no refunds and exchanges for ACL Cashless purchases.

NOTE: You register for Cashless at the conclusion of the wristband activation process.
