RFID FAQ's

  2. ORDER: Once inside the show grounds, order from any of our bars
  3. TAP: When it is time to pay, tap your wristbands, choose tip amount, enter your PIN and GO!

RFID Top Code

You will be asked for an emergency contact, you can list yourself or someone else. This is just one additional security measure.

After entering your wristband ID number, you will create a unique 4-digit PIN to use when paying with your wristband. This is an exclusive PIN of your choice that will be needed to complete all purchases. (this is not to be confused with your debit card PIN)

Enter remaining information as prompted – your email is requested in order to send you receipts for each of your purchases.

No, this will work just like your debit or credit card.

Yes, absolutely. This is just an added convenience for those attendees who would like to participate.

Yes! It works in conjunction with your debit or credit card, so it carries all the same security features and protection. You will also set a PIN during the registration process, so no one else will be able to use your wristband without your PIN.

Works at Bars: YES

Works at MERCH: YES

Works at FOOD BOOTHS: YES

Works with craft vendors: NO

Don’t panic, that is why you have a PIN. Your PIN will guarantee no one else can use your account. If a wristband is lost or stolen at the event please go to the BOX OFFICE for assistance.
