DUSK is going to be 100% CASHLESS for 2019. No vendors (food, beverages, merchandise, other) will be able to accept cash as payment. You will either need to connect a credit/debit card to your RFID wristband or add cash to your RFID wristband once you enter the festival. Details are below!

Your Wristband is Your Ticket to the Festival

Once you receive your wristband, do not try it on. The clasp slides one way and there is no way to remove it or loosen it without damaging the wristband.

Wristbands are non-removable and non-transferable and must not be tampered with in any way. If you are a 2-day ticketholder, your 2-day wristband grants you admission for both days. If you are a Saturday or Sunday ticketholder, your wristband grants you admission on the day shown on the wristband.

You must wear your wristband at all times while at the festival. Do not cut off or remove your wristband until you leave the Armory Park for the final time.

Lost, stolen, damaged and tampered with wristbands will only be replaced at the discretion of festival staff. The wristband replacement fee is $25.

I Already Activated My Wristband, But Missed the DUSK Cashless, What Should I Do?

What Are DUSK Cashless Benefits?

  • Save time and makes lines faster
  • No need to carry cash or a credit card
  • Accepted at all bars, vendors, and festival merch tents

Are There Fees? Will My Wristband Run Out of Money?

There are no fees for using DUSK Cashless (accept for the standard credit card processing fees you would normally incur using a credit card). Your wristband will not run out of money unless the card you linked it to does. No funds are stored to the wristband, it’s just linked to your credit or debit card. As long as you could still use your card, you will still be able to use your DUSK Cashless wristband.

Can I Link Multiple Credit or Debit Cards to My Wristband?

No. You will only be able to link a single credit or debit card to your wristband.

Can I Link the Same Card to Multiple Wristbands?

Yes. If you wish to allow your card to be linked to multiple wristbands, you certainly can. Each wristband will require a separate PIN. The PIN must be entered when using the wristband to purchase anything participating in the DUSK Cashless program at the festival.

Is My Credit Card Information Stored on My Wristband?

No. We do not actually store any financial data on the wristband. The PIN you choose upon DUSK Cashless registration will always be required to make a purchase. However your card number and billing details are not stored on the wristband. So don’t worry about someone snagging your info.

Is DUSK Cashless Secure?

Yes! It works in conjunction with your credit card so it carries all the same security features and protection. You will also set a PIN during registration (just like a debit card), so no one else will be able to use your wristband or your DUSK Cashless account without your PIN.

What Happens if My Wristband Chip is Damaged?

First, don’t panic. We can help! Bring your damaged wristband to the DUSK Box Office and we can replace any activated wristband after verifying your ownership. Please show them your confirmation email & a valid ID or make sure your wristband is registered under your name. You will have to re-link your credit card for security purposes. Then you will be back in action!
