You can activate wristbands at either festival bar and at two “Activation Station” tents at the festival.

Station One Hours: Thursday, 4:00 pm to 8:30 pm; Friday, 3:00 pm to 8:30 pm; Saturday, 9:30 am to 8:00 pm; and Sunday, 10:30 am to 3:00 pm. SCHEDULE PAGE
Station Two is located right inside the main gate, next to the Bluesapalooza Merchandise tent, and features both credit card and cash terminals.
Festival bars, North and South, will each feature 2 terminals (credit and debit cards only).
Simply place your wristband on the reader and follow the on-screen instructions. Linking your bank card to your RFID wristband takes less than 20 seconds. Please note: All food and retail vendors accept cash and credit cards at their locations, not cashless RFID payments.
Only the festival bars and festival merchandise tent require the RFID wristband as “cashless” payment method.
