activate & Register your wristband

Activate your wristband for a smooth entry, and unlock extra safety features, such as adding an emergency contact. Once activated, register for Cashless for an easy checkout to pay for food, drinks, and merch, as well as other benefits throughout the festival — all with the tap of your wrist.

Here’s how to register for Cashless:

  1. Activate your wristband and link your account with PayPal, Venmo, or any credit/debit card. Then set a required PIN for security.
  2. At the festival, order at any bar or vendor location and let them know you’re paying with your wristband.
  3. Tap your wristband, enter your PIN, and you’re done!

Activate Cashless now with PayPal or Venmo and you could receive a $10 Bonnaroo credit applied to your wristband good for purchases throughout the festival. Limited to the first 7,500 PayPal registrations and the first 5,000 Venmo registrations. Credit expires at 10pm CT on 6/18/23. Terms apply.
