RFID Wristbands

Using Cashless Payment Technology

Your personalized festival wristband is not only your ticket to get into Reggae Rise Up faster, but it will also be used as your digital wallet to make purchases at the event – all with a simple tap of your wristband! Gone are the days of having to worry about walking around the festival with your wallet or fumbling for change in your pocket; instead, enjoy fast, convenient and secure transactions using your RFID-enabled wristband. Now, all you have to focus on is enjoying the feel-good music!

Cashless is the only method of payment on-site. To make the most of your on-site experience, register your wristband online and ‘top-up’ by loading pre-paid funds into your cashless account before you arrive – this will save you tons of time at the festival, so you can go straight to the action.

If you’re worried about missing a performance at Reggae Rise Up because you have to search for a Top-up Station, the easiest and most convenient way to add credit to your account is to “Enable Auto Top-up”. With the “Enable Auto Top-up” feature, your account balance will automatically re-load $30 pre-paid credit into your account when your balance drops below $10. The pre-paid amount will automatically be charged to your credit card and you will receive an email notification of this transaction.

Don’t miss out on the benefits of Auto Top-up:
  • Optimal convenience
  • Saves you time not having to visit a “Top-up Station” to top-up more credit
  • You’ll never run low on credit at the event
  • Automatic email notifications whenever your account gets re-loaded with credit
  • Automatic refund back on your credit card for leftover credit after the event
  • Auto Top-Up can be disabled anytime from your cashless account settings


On March 2nd and 3rd, you will have the opportunity to swap your ticket for your wristband if you go to Vinoy Park between 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. If you can’t swap your ticket during these times, there will also be a FREE Reggae Rise Up Launch Party from 6-10pm at Vinoy Park to help kick-off the weekend, where you will also be able to swap your ticket for your wristband. Swapping your ticket for your wristband before Reggae Rise Up begins will allow you to register and top-up before the event, ensuring that you will be ready to go when doors open!

Note: If you are unavailable during these dates and times, you will receive your RFID wristband when you arrive at the festival in exchange for your ticket. You can then register and top-up using your smartphone, or by visiting a Top-up Station on-site.


    • Ability to top-up your account in advance, saving you time from visiting a Top-Up Station at the festival
    • Email notifications of all your top-up and purchase transactions
    • Tracking of your on-site purchases
    • Automatic refund after the event (for any leftover credit from online top-ups)
    • If you ever lose or break your wristband, customer service will be able to cancel and re-issue you a new wristband and transfer your account balance if you are registered
  • You can top-up at one of the on-site Top-Up Stations located throughout the event grounds. However, vendor stands will not be able to top-up for you, so make sure you have enough credit in your account before making purchases. Trained staff will be on-hand to help you through the process.

  • Now that you’ve topped-up your account, you can make cashless purchases for food, drinks and merchandise at Reggae Rise Up. Once you’re at a vendor location:

    • Tap your wristband on the RFID reader
    • Place your order with the staff
    • Tap your wristband a second time to confirm your transaction

    The amount will automatically be deducted from your account. It’s that easy!

  • No, you cannot transfer credits once they are in your personalized account. However, any leftover credit will be refunded to you in accordance with our refund policy.

  • No, you cannot split payment for an item. Only one wristband can be used to open the transaction, and that same wristband must be used to close and confirm the purchase. This is a security feature to ensure the purchaser is in control of their own spending.

  • No, you cannot combine credit from different accounts once those accounts have been created separately.

  • If you’ve created an account online and linked your wristband to it, no worries! Visit Customer Service at the event and they will deactivate your lost wristband and issue you a new one. Please bring valid photo ID. Link the new wristband number to your account and continue having a great time – your money is still in your account if you’ve previously linked it.

    However, if you did NOT create an online account and didn’t link your wristband, unfortunately your remaining credit balance can no longer be retrieved. To get a replacement wristband, visit Customer Service and show proof of your original event ticket purchase along with valid photo ID. If someone else bought the tickets on your behalf, you will need to bring the original purchaser with you to the kiosk and show proof of purchase along with valid photo ID. Replacement wristbands will be issued at the discretion of the Customer Service Representative.

    To avoid this issue, we strongly recommend you create an account and link your wristbands to that account prior to the event. Treat your wristband the same way you would treat cash! We are not responsible for any funds stolen / missing from your wristband if you lose it.
