Admission wristbands double as a way to pay for drinks, food or merchandise at the festival. Riverbend 2019 is a cashless event, so you’ll pay with your RFID (radio frequency identification) wristband rather than using tokens, cash, or credit cards. However, during the festival, you can visit stations set up to load cash onto your wristband. Those stations are called top up stations. The only way to add cash or tokens (tokens can be redeemed this year only) to your wristband is by visiting a top up station on site during the festival. Please note: this is the final year to redeem tokens for purchases.
To make purchases at the festival, we’ll simply scan your wristband and the cost of the purchase will be discounted from your credit balance loaded onto your wristband. Riverbend is using a cashless system to enhance your festival experience, with increased security and an improved festival buying experience.
To save time you can register your wristband here and connect it to your debit card or credit card.
