  • Activation of RFID-services

Once you successfully registered your ticket, you get access to your personal “My Ticket” page, where you can activate one or more of the aforementioned RFID-services.



  • Cashless payment service

Secret Solstice offers Festival visitors with a registered ticket the ability to pay for the purchase of certain goods and services on the Festival site (including but not limited to the purchase of food and drinks) with (the RFID-chip in) their wristband. Klopt dit? Of gaat het enkel om drank en eten?

If you want to make use of this “cashless payment service”, you first need to activate the service via the “My Ticket” page, by clicking on the “Pay” button. This will lead you to another page where you can administer the service.

Firstly, you have to select one or more “credit-packs” to top up your account.

Secondly, you have to determine the payments service you want to use, in order to “pay” for the credit-packs you selected.

You will then be taken to a page where you have to choose your payment method. Depending on your choice of payment method, you will have to agree with the specific terms and conditions as determined by the according payment provider (governing the direct contractual relation between you and the payment provider).

After choosing PayPal as your payment method, you’ll be transferred to another page, where you’ll be offered a “PayPal billing agreement”, to be accepted if you want to use the cashless payment service, authorizing PayPal to execute future automated top-ups. Acceptance of that agreement generates a contract directly between you and PayPal.

By clicking the “agree and continue” button, the cashless payment service will automatically be activated and you will be retransferred to the “My Ticket” page, where you get an overview of your “top-ups”, consumptions and balance.

When arriving at the Festival, your “consumable” ( = total amount of “top ups” that can be spent) will automatically be linked to your wristband and you’ll be able to pay with it at the goods and service providers accepting the cashless payment service.

After termination of the Festival, you ‘ll be able to get a refund of your remaining “consumable”. …


  • Fast lane access

Lastly, Secret Solstice offers visitors who received their wristband by mail before the start of the Festival, the ability to link their ticket to their wristband through the Service. By doing so they get “fast lane access” at the entrance of the Festival site.

You’ll then be transferred to a second page where you’ll be able to enter your unique wristband number in a box. After entering your wristband number, you have to click on the “Link wristband” button next to the box. This will automatically activate the service and you’ll be retransferred to your “My Ticket” page.
