07. My WKND account

MyWKND is a personal festival account that allows you to view and manage all the features of your wristband.

With the account you can link your ticket to the festival wristband.

Through your account, you can also manage or buy for example the following additional services to your wristband:

  • You can attach your credit or debit card to your wristband. The information is safe on a secure server, but your wristband will work in the festival area as a means of payment without you having to charge repeatedly money on your wristband. For more information on connecting a credit card to your account, see "Topup: adding money"
  • You can add spending money to your wristband before the festival and use it for all services in the festival area.
  • You can upgrade your ticket type from the standard ticket to the Priority or VIP ticket by paying the difference between the ticket price (if Priority or VIP tickets are still left).
  • You can pay via your wristband the admission to the festivals afterparties
  • You can see your use of money and the shopping receipts of the festival area in one place

We encourage you to create an account in advance to manage all the features of your wristband. The account must be activated when you arrive at the festival area if you plan to use the services of the festival area or buy food and drink in the area.

All purchases will go through your MyWKND account linked to your wristband and you will also be able to track your spending and view your purchases later on after the festival.

If you do not create an account, the wristband will automatically be linked to the ticket at the exhange point or at the festival gate. In this case, money can be added to the wristband at one of the ‘top up’ points at the festival for a £ 1 service fee. 

You can transfer money from your online bank to your MyWKND account, or you can link your credit or debit card directly to your wristband so you do not have to worry about adding money to your wristband on the festival area.

For more information on linking a card to your account, see "Topup: adding money"

In the festival area, you can also add money to your account at a Top Up point in cash or by bank or credit card for a 1 € service fee.

We highly recommend that you create your account as soon as you have received your ticket and when our MyWKND section has been opened on our website in July. This will give you time to purchase the additional services you want and you can also add money to your account before the festival.

To open your account, you will need your personal ticket code from your ticket. We will update more detailed instructions for opening an account when the MyWKND function is published on our website in July.

How to add money automatically to your account?
You can link your credit or bank card on your MyWKND account directly to your wristband by checking "auto top-up" while registering. Then to your account will be added the amount of money that you specify, and when it is used, your wristband will automatically recharge the same amount.

All purchases made in the festival area will run through your MyWKND account linked to the festival wristband, and you can also track your spending on the account and view your purchases later after the festival.

If you want a receipt on the spot, you can print it from the info point during the festival.

You will get your unused money back after the event. The form for applying for a refund will be published on 30.08.2018 at You will have to fill in your name, your bank information and the longer code from your wristband. The refund will be returned to your account within 1 to 4 weeks.

We will charge a $ 1 service fee for the refunds. Less than 5 € refunds will not be refunded.
