FAQ – Cashless bracelet

What is the Cashless bracelet?

Why create an account?

To optimize their use, all Cashless wristbands can be associated with a personal account that will enable you to:

  • Top up your account before and during the festival via our website.
  • Register your credit card for faster recharging.
  • View your account balance and transaction history.
  • Block your wristband in the event of loss or theft, and obtain a new one.
  • Request a refund of your account balance at the end of the festival.

Creating an account is not compulsory for individual ticket holders, but is recommended in order to take full advantage of the dematerialized payment service.

How do I use my bracelet during the festival?

To make a payment, simply present your bracelet to the kiosk volunteer and the transaction will be completed in seconds. You can check your available credit before each order, and view your transaction history on your online account.
