Why we are going Cashless for Food & Drink!

SHORTER QUEUE TIMES!
Spend less time waiting at the bar and more time dancing as the cashless system allows bar staff to serve you quicker.

BETTER BUDGETING!
Top up exactly how much you want to spend at the festival, no more waking up in regret about overspending on your credit cards! Remember, any unused credit can be refunded after the festival.

TRACK YOUR SPENDING!
It is easy to keep track of your spending. Ask at any bar, trader or top up booth and they will tell you instantly how much money is left on your wristband.

BETTER SECURITY!
As the RFID chip is attached to your wrist there is no need to carry your wallet, cash or cards around the festival, which means you can’t lose them!

WHAT YOU DON’T SPEND YOU GET BACK!
At the end of the festival, any unused credit can be refunded back to you. Simply following the refund process on our website.

ACTIVATION FEE

There is a £1 activation fee applied and taken off your band when you make your first purchase at the bar at Mardi Gras Festival

REFUND APPLICATIONS
Make sure you keep hold of your wristband as you will need the 14 digit ID number from the back of your wristband chip to refund any left over money.

Our Refund applications window is Monday August 16th – 10am to 5pm.
Please make sure you apply for your credit refund before the cut off.

The benefits are the reduction of Cash Handling for you as well as a streamlined process when ordering drinks at the bar, this means less queue times and more time to enjoy the event.

Wristbands will be given to you when you arrive at the festival once you have successfully redeemed your event ticket.

You can top up your wrist band using cash or card, purchase items from craft stalls or fairground rides. But for all Food & Drink purchases that are made at the festival must be used using your RFID Wristband / Card.
