Quick And Easy Festival Entry

Wristband activation ensures a smooth process when entering the festival each day and makes sure that your investment remains yours.


Pay With A Tap Of The Wrist

When you activate your wristband, you’ll have the option of registering for Lolla Cashless – the easy way for you to pay for goods, grub, merch and more with the tap of a wrist. It works in conjunction with your credit card. You will set a PIN during registration — just like a debit card — that you will enter before completing a purchase at the fest.
