Festival Currency
#EatDrinkFestival is a 100% cashless festival. By taking out cash, our vendors can process transactions faster and there are less lines.
You can purchase festival currency ("Feast Points") at #EatDrinkFestival with cash or debit card at the front desk or any of the top up stations around the festival. The #EatDrinkFestival wristband contains a chip, which can be read by a special tablet device given to all vendors.

The process is straight-forward and simple. Just let the vendor know what you will like to purchase and they will ring up the transaction on their device. You will then tap your wristband against their tablet and voila, transaction is complete, start enjoying your food and drink!

Your wristbands can be loaded with as many Feast Points as you desire. Please note, however, that you will be charged a one-time activation fee of N1000. Leftover value can also be withdrawn at the conclusion of the event.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q:
CAN I USE CASH TO PAY FOR FOOD AND DRINKS IF I HAVEN'T UPLOADED ANYTHING TO MY WRISTBAND?
A:
#EatDrinkFestival is a cashless festival. In other words, to buy food, drinks or merchandise at the event you will need to use funds that have been loaded to your tap-and-go wristband. Cash WILL NOT be accepted by vendors at the event but you can use cash to top up your band
Q:
WHAT IS A 'CASHLESS FESTIVAL'? HOW DOES IT WORK AT THE EVENT?
A:
When you arrive at the event, you can get a wristband and load it with as much or as little funds as you'd like to purchase food from vendors.

If you purchased buy a preloaded wristband before the event online, you will be emailed a ticket confirmation. This ticket will be scanned and swapped for a wristband at the front gate. If you choose to pick up your wristband ahead of the event, which we recommend, this will be done at Café One.

The #EatDrinkFestival wristband contains a chip, which can be read by a special tablet device given to all vendors.

This wristband needs to remain on your wrist for duration of the event.

Inside the event, you will also be able to load additional points onto your wristband using exact cash or credit/debit card. Look out for one of our top-up tents or friendly top-up staff who can help you do this.

Once you have loaded points onto your wristband you can visit any of the food or drink vendors on-site. Let them know what you would like to purchase and they will scan your wristband in order to deduct the correct amount - and then it's time to enjoy your purchase!
Q:
HOW MUCH SHOULD I LOAD ONTO MY WRISTBAND?
A:
We would recommend loading a minimum of N5000 to your wristband at initial top-up in order to maximise your experience at the event.
Q:
HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH I HAVE LEFT ON MY WRISTBAND?
A:
You can simply ask any vendor or top-up staff member to scan your wristband to see how much credit you have remaining. After each transaction, the vendor will also show you the balance you have remaining.
Q:
IS THERE A COST TO ME?
A:
In order to make use of the awesome benefits that cashless provides (mainly shorter wait times for you!), a one-time activation fee of N1000 will be deducted from your initial top-up. So if you add N5000 to your wristband the first time you top-up, you'll have N4000 left to spend. Each consecutive time you add funds to your wristband, 100% of the funds you add will be yours to spend at the festival.
Q:
WHAT IF I DON'T SPEND EVERYTHING ON MY WRISTBAND? CAN I GET A REFUND ON WHAT'S LEFT OVER?
A:
Yes you can! Make sure you hold onto your wristband after the event and head to any of the top-up stations to claim your refund.
