At the last year’s festival, Roots N Blues took a step into the future of music festivals; we went cashless. Throughout the weekend, fans used their wristbands as both their ticket and digital wallet. Let’s be real: before the festival, there was a minor panic in response to the new system. Many festival-goers were hesitant to the change, and there were questions behind how it all worked.
After the festival though, the consensus was clear — the cashless system made the festival exponentially easier. There were barely any lines for food or beer, fewer wallets in the lost and found & more time for watching the killer bands perform. In the reviews of the festival, tens of fans admitted to being initially adverse to the system before the festival, but they completely repudiated their claims after. So, we’re going to stick with the cashless system.
So we’re going to break it down for everyone this year. Here’s what you need to know.
If you still have questions, don’t worry. There’s an entire page on our website with more details & a detailed instruction packet will come with your wristband. We wholeheartedly believe that this makes the festival smoother, and we’re excited for you to experience it, too!
