X is a CASHLESS Festival.
This year at X Festival we are excited to introduce a new CASHLESS WRISTBAND system that enables you to safely and securely pay for you drinks, food and merchandise FAST!
HOW DOES IT WORK
The CASHLESS WRISTBAND has a small plastic tag attached to it which has a tiny RFID chip (Radio Frequency for Identification) just like your contactless bank card does. So just like using your contactless card in a store you will use your CASHLESS WRISTBAND to buy food and drinks during the event without worrying about losing your bankcard or cash every time you put your hand in our pocket.
HOW DO I GET MY CASHLESS WRISTBAND
Upon entry to X Festival you will be given a your CASHLESS WRISTBAND. You’ll then need to follow the signs to the top up point where you’ll be able to quickly add funds to the wristband either using cash or bank card. When you top up your bracelet for the first time there will be a £1 admin charge for the chip activation. Don’t worry, your subsequent top ups will be free
CAN I PAY FOR FOOD AND DRINK WITH MY CASH OR CREDIT CARD?
No, that’s what your CASHLESS WRISTBAND is for.
WHAT IF I RUN OUT OF CREDIT?
All you need to do is pop back to the top up point and you can put more money onto your wristband.
WHAT IF I HAVE MONEY LEFT ON MY WRISTBAND AT THE END OF THE NIGHT?
It’s really simple, you can either return to the top up point and do it before you leave the site, or you can do online up to 7 days after the event. Details of how to do this will be posted here on the site.
WHAT IF I LOSE MY WRISTBAND?
Your CASHLESS WRISTBAND is just like your wallet or cash in the sense you must take care not to lose it as we cannot refund any credit that may have been on it. It will be tied to your wrist so someone will have to have forcibly removed it in which case you will need to report it to the authorities on site. You will be able to get a new one and add more credit. NO personal or confidential information is stored on the card, so no need to worry about identity theft.
