Cashless system

Here we go again with the CASHLESS system. Leave your wallet at home, you will only need a wristband with a chip to pay at the event! Cash and card payments will not be accepted at festival area and V.I.P camp.

Top up your credit online before the event, pay by swiping at the point of sale device and track your spending simply online. If you don't spend it all, you won't lose the rest of your credit. You can apply for a refund free of charge within 14 days after the end of the festival (i.e. by 31.08.2024 at the latest).

For an even better overview, we recommend using the mobile app iOS, Android. Once the chip is loaded with NFC technology, you can clearly see your entire spending and current balance. You can also rate your purchases, receive notifications about individual orders and conveniently return any remaining funds to your bank account after the event.

Why top up your credit online in advance?

Recharge your credit online for free:
  • Top up your credit online for free and avoid the queue. (For technical reasons, pre-top-up is possible up to 2 days before the start of the festival.)
  • You don't pay anything extra.
  • You will receive the chip bracelet directly at the event after submitting the QR code found in your CASHLESS solution provider profile.

  • Top up with cash or card at a designated top-up point.

The credit balance refund is free of charge and without limitation for accounts in CZK and EUR.

We do not refund cash. Don't know what to do? Our video tutorial or CASHLESS support system can help you.

Why can't I pay by card?

- Chip credit can be topped up by card at top-up points. Providing the network infrastructure for card payments is too expensive for retailers at the event. Moreover, we cannot be dependent on the phone signal. Paying by card through a terminal involves internet communication with the bank, and sales would be significantly slowed. With chip payment, we can guarantee that there will be no downtime and that everything will work even without access to the telecommunications network.
