Secret Solstice goes cashless!
ICELAND’S FIRST AND ONLY CASHLESS FESTIVAL
New for 2018, Secret Solstice is a 100% cashless festival. We are introducing a faster and easier way for you to experience our festival with our new cashless payment system. Top-up before the festival to get great rewards.
As one of the most unique festivals in the world, we bring together good music, unforgettable experiences and good company under 96 hours of the beautiful Icelandic summer solstice sun. We don’t think lots of long queues, counting coins and carrying lots of cash in your pockets should keep you from enjoying this experience to the max. So we wanted to change that by becoming Iceland’s first and only cashless music festival.
This means that for the first time ever all our bars, shops, food trucks and facilities services inside the festival will only accept 100% cashless payments. Everyone can pay contactless using a special RFID wristband as easily as do with your contactless mobile phone. (For our international friends that also means you can change less currency with pre-festival and auto top-ups).
Our new cashless payment system will make your transactions inside the festival quicker and easier. You make payments using your encrypted wristband that you can top-up with credit through your cashless account online before you arrive and whilst you’re on-site. You can even keep track of your transactions online, so you can always find the name of your favourite shop on-site.
As the first festival in Iceland to go cashless, we’re dedicated to improving our services, festival security and your experience. By moving to cashless payments we can offer a more convenient and safer way for you to party with your favourite artists, food, drink and activities without the burden of carrying cash throughout the festival, searching for cash machines or worrying about lost money. Plus with added incentives for topping up before the festival, what’s not to love.
Visit our website today with your ticket number ready and follow the instructions in the cashless section to register and add credit to your wristband. Make sure you have added your date of birth details to your ticket or you won’t be able to register. There will also be top-up points inside the festival that you can use your cash or credit card to add money to your wristband. You can even set up automatic top-ups so you always have credit on your wristband.
To celebrate our new, more efficient payment system we’re running an exciting pre-festival reward incentive so top-up 10,000kr before June 20th and get two drinks free (valid for beer, wine and cider only)!
