Payment in the Festival Village

This year the Festival Village will be cashless (ooh!) which means bring your debit card, credit card, Android or iPhone (with mobile wallet enabled) and get ready to 'tap & go'. Every stall in the Festival Village will only take payment with a Visa, Mastercard or Amex debit or credit card or your smart phone with 'tap & go' functionality. No pesky tokens, no ATM machines charging $3.50 a transaction, no lining up for currency and no hassles.

Just repeating - cash will not be accepted at this year's festival. You must bring your debit or credit card that has 'tap & go' functionality.
