EDC Orlando Will Use A Cashless Payment System

15 Photos From EDC Orlando 2013

Insomniac has just announced that “the future is now.” This year Insomniac Events has announced that they will be incorporating a cashless payment system that will allow the “headliners” to purchase food, drinks, merchandise, locker access and everything else that you can purchase at EDC Orlando all with a simple tap of your RFID-equipped wristband.

What does this mean for you? Faster service and shorter lines.

Daisy Dollars are the official monetary system of EDC Orlando and the currency you’ll use to pay for everything at the festival. Before arriving at EDC Orlando, activate your wristband online. Follow the on-screen instructions to create your account and add funds. Your account links with the RFID chip in your wristband to make purchases at the festival as simple as a swipe. And you can log on any time to track your spending, download receipts, deactivate lost wristbands, apply for a refund, and much more. Daisy Dollars can also be added to your account at the event. We call it “topping up,” and stations will be located throughout the festival grounds to help process these transactions.

Don’t worry if you don’t spend all the money you add. At the end of the festival, you will be automatically refunded anything leftover—minus a refund transaction fee of $4.50, which we have strived to keep lower than other festivals.

Pro tip: Load $100 onto your wristband before November 6, and we’ll add 10 free Daisy Dollars to your account! (Complimentary Daisy Dollars are not eligible for refund after the festival.)

If you haven’t yet purchased your ticket, expedited shipping will be available until October 29. Starting on October 24, you’ll also have the option to select will-call pickup; but note that this may increase your wait time entering the festival, so getting your wristband ahead of time is encouraged! If you’ve ordered yours but you’re still waiting to receive it, feel free to go ahead and create your account online. After you get your wristband, you can link it to your account and top-up.

Take care of your wristband once you have it! It will not be replaced if lost or stolen, and it will be void if tampered with or removed. Keep it somewhere safe until it’s time to put it on. When you’re ready to enter EDC for the weekend, insert your hand through the band and position it comfortably on your right wrist. We recommend you leave roughly enough space to fit a finger beneath the band. Slowly pull the cloth through the wristband’s lock, ensuring that it’s securely fastened. Remember: There are absolutely no ins-and-outs, and each wristband can be scanned into the event only once per day.

We want to make this a great experience for everyone involved, so don’t hesitate to tweet your questions using the hashtag #EDCRFID or send an email to You can also watch this video tutorial to learn all about RFID wristband do’s and don’ts, and visit our wristband faq page to learn more about how the cashless system works.
